Yesterday’s news of Google Play Music now offering ad-supported streaming music in Canada was certainly welcome news. But at the end of that announcement there was a passing mention around podcasts.
We thought that would be awesome, so today we’re announcing that we plan to start offering podcasts on Google Play Music, giving podcasters access to millions of new listeners on Android phones and tablets.
Now this in itself isn’t new. Google announced this same thing when they launched the streaming service here in the US. In fact, it is the exact same language. Interestingly however, as I researched this last night (after building my Fi Lego set of course), there is surprisingly little information on this or when it will be coming to Google Play Music. The one clear thing that is known is that content is needed and if you have a podcast you want to offer up then it is time to get registered with Google on it.
