Amazon Music introduces Podcasts in the US, UK, Germany and Japan

Amazon cranks up its music service with podcasts - The Jakarta Post

VP of Amazon Music, Steve Boom announced, that on release, Amazon Music will have an enormous variety of popular content to offer to its listeners, as the company tries to keep up with its user's evolving taste and aims to provide a rich experience rooted in music and entertainment. Disgraceland's narrative storytelling highlights tales of getting away with murder and behaving badly, chronicling some of the craziest criminal stories surrounding some of the most interesting and infamous pop stars. The show will debut on Amazon Music in February 2021. "I can not think of a more ideal place to share them than IMDb and AMAZON MUSIC".

The podcasts will stream directly from a creator's hosting provider "so all your metrics will be unaffected and if you are running advertising through a dynamic ad insertion system, things will work the same as on other podcasting services", Amazon says. "We'll discuss fame, fortune, life, and success. Before you get to another one, you got to get to 'The First One, ' only on Amazon Music".

Amazon Music is now offering millions of episodes of free podcasts and has set a slate of original programming coming to the platform - representing a major new rival to Spotify and Apple Podcasts. In case you didn't catch on already, the name of the podcast is a clever play on Elvis Presley's famous multi-acre mansion in Memphis, "Graceland", which was often in the news during the singer's lifetime for all the wrong reasons.

"To me, my voice has always been about more than just singing, it's using it for the greater good and creating a destination for change", said BECKY G, whose show is a co-production between AMAZON and GEMA PRODUCTIONS. "[We're] enabling creators to reach new audiences globally, just as we've done with music streaming. I'm excited to be joining forces with Amazon Music so we can start to have conversations about looking within to see how we can all be better".

Why bring podcasts to Amazon Music?

Including many celebrities that you never would have thought would have time to do a podcast. Amazon Music customers can access podcasts in the Amazon Music app for iOS and Android, on Amazon Echo devices, and here. Still, Jeff Bezos' resolve in making his services top-notch, it's only a matter of time before integration amongst Amazon's entertainment tentacles gets in sync with the current times.

As anticipated, Amazon Music gained't merely give its listeners the flexibility to subscribe to any podcast straight.

Audio streaming services are finding it hard to stick with a pure music play with licensing costs growing.
