Amazon Prime Music includes songs across major International and Indian music labels in over 20 languages including Hindi, English, Tamil, Telugu, Punjabi and multiple other Indian languages.
Amazon Prime Music had recently launched podcasts in the Indian market. This move by the music streaming platform, however, might seem a little late to the party, especially since the likes of Spotify and Apple have had it around for years.
The podcast platform on Amazon Prime Music has a curated list of shows by popular creators like Jay Shetty, Cyrus Broacha, Neil Bhatt, Robin Sharma, Sadhguru, Anupam Gupta, among many others.
The new podcasts platform can be accessed through the Amazon Prime Music app on android and iOS, apart from the Web player and Amazon Echo devices. Podcasts are available for all Amazon Prime Music customers at no additional cost.
