Google Play Music Podcasts is the next step for this streaming service. Now that it has redesigned Songza into its own brand image and functionality, the product is looking to expand. What better way than with podcasts? This growing industry fleshes out the audio experience in a way that touches on entertainment, education and everything in between.
Currently coming to the United States and Canada first, Google Play Music Podcasts will stray away from the typical directory system. The company reveals, "Similar to our contextual playlists for music, you can now listen to podcasts based on what you’re doing, how you’re feeling or what you’re interested in." This way the discovery element of such podcasts should be much more intuitive while also serving a high purpose.
