BLOOMBERG's LUCAS SHAW is reporting that SPOTIFY is eyeing an entry into the podcast field, talking to content partners about adding podcasts to its streaming service. SHAW cites "people briefed on the matter" as having had discussions "for several months" but adds that, according to "one of the people," " there is no firm plan or introduction date."
The report also indicates that the podcasts might include a "video component" that would allow a user to toggle from audio to video reports.
Spotify Comes To PS3 And PS4
THEVERGE.COM reports, "a few months ago, SONY brought good news to its music-loving PLAYSTATION users -- the company was officially discontinuing its failed Music Unlimited streaming service and was instead partnering with the biggest player in the streaming music space, SPOTIFY. As of today, that changeover is officially complete: Music Unlimited is dead and SPOTIFY users can now log into the service on either the PS3 or PS4. It’s an exclusive deal, as well -- SPOTIFY won’t be coming to the XBOX ONE any time soon."
