We knew a few weeks ago that Amazon Music was looking for podcasts and podcasters to include together with Twitch (also owned by Amazon) a new feature in their already big platform: podcasts. And the moment has arrived. Podcasts are already available in the US, UK, Germany and Japan.
The podcasters chosen are big names in the music industry such as Dj Khaled and Becky G who will be hosting exclusive shows on audio and video formats. On his podcast, ‘The first One’ Dj Khaled will interview big artists from the industry about their most famous hits and how they changed their careers. ‘En la Sala’ by Becky G will dedicate every episode to a non-profit organization which will be related to the specific topic of the week.
According to Amazon Music it has never been so easy to listen to a podcast given the fact that podcasts can now be listened from their Amazon Echo speakers using the voice functionality to start playing them. It doesn’t matter if you are at home, in the gym, on the go or in the car, you just have to ask for what you want to listen.
With this new addition, Amazon offers even more entertainment options to its global audience.
