Following in the footsteps of Spotify, Google Play Music will soon begin offering podcasts through its service, as first reported by Recode. Google says it will offer contextual podcast recommendations, offering up podcasts based on what you're currently doing or your interests, which could help separate Google Play Music from the plethora of apps and services offering up podcasts these days.

The company has not said when podcasts will become available on Google Play Music yet — for now, it's trying to add as many podcasters (for now US only) as possible before the launch happens. With over a dozen podcasts and networks like 5by5, HBO, Nerdist, and StartTalk Radio already committed to the service, it shouldn't bee too much longer before Google Play Music opens its podcast section to the public.
