Google Confirms Podcast Carousels Going Away February 13

A few weeks ago, we reported that Google dropped the podcasts carousel from the search results. Well, now Google confirmed the podcast carousel is 100% going away within the Google Search results.

Google posted in the Google Podcast Manager the other day a message that reads, “Note: Google Search will stop showing podcast carousels by February 13. As a result, clicks and impressions in How people find your show will drop to zero after that date.”

This was spotted by Azeem on Twitter but I see it as well, here is his screenshot:

As a reminder, the podcast rich results launched in 2017, I have some screenshots here but this image from 9to5Google shows the before and after in a clear and concise manner:
