If someone sends you a link to a podcast in Messages, you could find it in Messages or even find it right in the Podcasts app.

Just like that, all the podcasts people have shared with you should be right there for you to take a listen.

Photos that people share with you are also accessible directly in the Photos app.

  1. Launch Photos from your Home screen.
  2. Tap the For You tab.
  3. Scroll down to the Shared with You section.

While testing out this feature, I did have some trouble replicated the results. Some photos people had shared appeared, and others didn't. This likely is a beta issue after all these features aren't released yet for a reason. So, if you're having trouble finding photos, keep that in mind.
