Amazon announced today that it has released podcast support in Amazon Music in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan.
“Our customers’ listening habits are constantly evolving, and we know they’re looking to us to provide them with a rich experience rooted in music and entertainment,” Amazon VP Steve Boom wrote in the announcement post. “With this launch, we’re bringing customers even more forms of entertainment to enjoy, while enabling creators to reach new audiences globally, just as we’ve done with music streaming. Podcasts, paired with our recent partnership with Twitch to bring live streaming into the app, makes Amazon Music a premiere destination for creators.”
Podcast support is available in Amazon Music for the web, Android, iOS, and on Amazon Echo devices, the firm says. It supports millions of episodes from top podcasts, and the firm says it has also partnered with creators to produce original, exclusive podcasts, including “The First One,” coming soon from DJ Khaled, “En la Sala” from Becky G, “That Scene with Dan Patrick,” with, yes, Dan Patrick, and an as-yet-unnamed project from Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s Westbrook Audio, that’s co-produced with Audible.
Podcast support on Amazon Music is free, so it works across all product tiers.
