Otto’s goal is to transform the time listeners spend on everyday tasks like driving, cooking and exercising into opportunities to learn, be entertained and stay informed about the things they care about most. They use the Audiosear.ch API to power deep search and surface the long tail of audio content — so listeners are constantly delighted by what they hear.
“Most technologies can’t meet our scalability requirement or handle our time-sensitive requests efficiently. Audiosear.ch’s custom tools and features built around the podcast vertical immediately impressed us, and convinced us that they were the right partner on our mission to organize and curate spoken word audio, and make the otherwise hard-to-discover content accessible for the masses."
The Alexa skill Magic Podcast uses the Audiosear.ch API to find and play podcasts based on title or subject matter. This means you can simply say, “Play Fresh Air” — or whatever your podcast of choice is — and the newest episode of that podcast will begin. Even cooler, Magic Podcast can also be used as a discovery tool. Discover podcasts by subject area by asking Alexa to “Find a podcast about food,” or “Find a podcast about business.” Magic, indeed.
“Audiosear.ch is my choice because it is the only API that consistently supports HTTPS streaming and has a diverse library of podcasts. It worked so well that I created an Alexa skill.”
