After a pre-launch period of collecting podcast submissions, Amazon Music now officially lists podcasts, similar to Apple Podcast’s and Spotify’s directory. At launch, the service was made available in four countries: U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan. More will be added in the future. In February 2021, the service officially launched in Canada as well.
In addition to some of its own exclusive series’, Amazon Music came out of the gate with about 70,000 podcasts listed in total. This is a far cry from the 1 million+ on Apple Podcasts and Spotify, but of course the number will grow over time as additional podcast publishers submit their feeds to Amazon.
Users can listen to podcasts with the Amazon Music app, online, or using an Amazon Echo device.
