A new way to discover audio content, 100% tailored to you

 

Launched in 2017, Audioburst Search is our search engine for finding, discovering, listening to, and sharing the latest news over audio. Users can search via keyword or topic and tap into our massive, up to the minute library of radio, podcast, and TV audio content. Now, with the introduction of personalized playlists to the platform, you can harness the power of our search engine and truly make the experience your own.

“Our goal at Audioburst has always been to change the way that listeners consume audio. We want to ensure that no matter whenever, whomever, or wherever users are, we’re delivering the most interesting, exciting, and engaging audio content to them at that moment. We believe that the key ingredient to that recipe is personalization. The new personalized playlist feature is going to present a news and talk experience which is much akin to what is available for music apps such as Spotify. Our partnerships with OEMs, content creators, and media companies only strengthen our ability to deliver the ‘whenever, wherever’ portion of our goal,” says Assaf Gad, VP of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships at Audioburst.
