Amazon today announced that Echo device owners can now stream more than 800,000 podcasts that are available on Apple Podcasts. After you link your Apple ID in the Alexa app, you can also pick up where you left off listening on the Apple Podcasts App or your Alexa device.
Pause the subscribed episode you’re listening to in the Apple Podcasts app on your commute, and continue listening with your Alexa device at home by asking Alexa to resume the podcast.
With this new integration, you can ask the following to your Echo:
- Alexa, play Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend on Apple Podcasts
- Alexa, play The Daily from yesterday on Apple Podcasts
- Alexa, resume playing Business Wars on Apple Podcasts
- Alexa, fast forward 30 seconds
- Alexa, next episode
