Lis­ten up

San Francisco Chronicle - - BUSINESS REPORT - DAILY BRIEF­ING

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.
