At the end of the day, none of these are all that “innovative.” What you’re describing is merely iterative. That distinction — between revolution and evolution — is very important for the media industry’s approach to strategic innovation:
“End-to-end audio isn’t change for change’s sake, like chatbots for news. Nor is it a square peg in a round hole, like VR for current events. It is very much a natural, native format, which eliminates friction, making the user experience materially easier and better. That’s the hurdle. With digital media still trying to find its footing in the age of abundance, end-to-end audio can be the regime change that truly fulfills tech’s promise to facilitate and enhance our interactions — rather than encumber them.”
