AudioBoom announced that it will be one of the content providers for Google Play’s upcoming podcast section. The company is one of 11 podcast and audio partners that will appear on the redesigned Google Play app. It is also the only partner based outside the U.S. The new version of the app is slated to launch in the U.S. later this month.
Podcasts are streaming (double meaning intended) into music services. Deezer acquired Stitcher, Pandora acquired exclusive streaming rights to Serial, Spotify unleashed its new Shows section in its Android app, and Google is setting up a new section, details of which are scarce.
