New and original titles are being offered alongside established local and international titles, and can be accessed via a range of sources including Alexa-enabled smart devices. Mobile and browser-based applications will also offer curated podcast recommendations for Amazon Music subscribers.
Amazon Music head of podcasts for Europe, Australia and New Zealand Craig Strachan promises a “superior podcast experience”.
“With this launch, we’re offering customers a convenient podcast listening experience that fits their lifestyle.”
With the ability to use voice functionality, users will be able to access home-grown talent including Hamish & Andy and Shameless, promising the opportunity to be “educated, entertained or inspired”.
