Lis­ten up

San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT -

Ama­zon Mu­sic has added pod­casts to its of­fer­ings. More than 70,000 shows, in­clud­ing ma­jor ti­tles like “Se­rial” and

“Pod Save Amer­ica,” are now avail­able, and there will be exclusive con­tent, in­clud­ing “The First One,” on which DJ Khaled will in­ter­view artists about their break­through hits. Users can lis­ten on the Ama­zon Mu­sic app, on the web or on Ama­zon Echo de­vices, which will re­mem­ber where lis­ten­ers left off. Ac­cord­ing to the Verge, which re­ported the news last week, it makes

Ama­zon Mu­sic more of a com­peti­tor with Spo­tify, which is heav­ily in­vested in pod­casts, while Ap­ple has yet to in­te­grate pod­casts with its mu­sic ser­vice.
