I used to be able to copy one set of Podcasts into a Playlist and was able to select this playlist on the audio menu for my phone and listen to the podcasts. Now the playlist built for the podcasts no longer shows up in my list of playlists. The podcast playlist appears in iTunes but no longer works when playing music with my phone.
If I go to Genres and select Podcast or using voice recognition to play a podcast I get no content available. The Podcasts appear normally on the iPhone but I cant access them directly via a Podcast selection or under music playlists, even though they arent really music. In the past this didnt matter and i could play my podcasts contained in a specific playlist entry.

Also when I select the Microphone icon from the main screen I used to have access to SIRI. Now when I select the icon the next screen shows the icon greyed out. Anyone having problems with their iPhones and CUE with all the recent IOS updates? I know its possibly a problem with my iTunes config but thats another nightmare I dont want to try and explain.

Hello jghiller,

I can understand how CUE issues like this would be frustrating. It looks like you are seeking some feedback from the rest of the forum, but I would also recommend reaching out to our infotainment team. They are our experts on the CUE and can be reached at 855-428-3669 from 8am to 10pm EST, seven days a week. If they do not have any information for you, please feel free to send a PM my way and we can look into additional options.

Enjoy your day,

Austin J.

I was thinking of calling them although it may be due to the recent IOS updates. I wrote down the outline of how to do these things with or w/o testing SIRI and trying to play Podcasts. I wanted to make sure I was doing steps properly. CUE can be less than intuitive at times.

I spent some time altering itunes and finally are now able to see all my podcasts - not exactly where I thought they would be listed on my phone but was able to play them in CUE. Apparently you no longer can play podcasts in a music playlist - probably a change brought on by IOS changes. I did this because when I first started listening to podcasts I only had a ipod nano and that didnt supprt podcasts.
So my fault. Also got SIRI to open the SiriusXM Internet APP USING THE MIC AND WAITING FOR THE PROMPT TO SAY SIRI AFTER PRESSING START ON THE MIC PAGE THAT COMES UP.

ITUNES IS A NIGHTMARE TO USE - ITS BEEN SCREWED UP SINCE I TRANSFERRED TO A NEW PC A WHILE BACK. I could do anything on iphone but not with CUE/Podcasts after syncing.
