The Leading Kids' Audio Streaming Platform Debuts Its Innovative Voice Activated Technology for Interactive Podcast Listening
BROOKLYN, N.Y., June 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinna, the only on-demand audio entertainment service developed and curated exclusively for kids 3-12, today announced the launch of the first voice activated interactive podcast format, to be released in a series called Yes No Audio.
Pinna's voice-enabled interactive podcast format creates an immersive experience for kids with a new way to engage with Pinna's storytelling. Kids will be able to actively participate in determining the outcomes of these podcast story-based adventures. Pinna is launching this innovative technology with three titles including Escape the Haunted House, Escape the Sinking Ship, and Escape the Marshmallow Dream Forest.
In each Yes No Audio time-based adventure, listeners will be prompted to verbally answer yes or no to decide on their escape plan as they work against the clock. There are multiple ways to escape, allowing kids opportunities to keep trying new or faster escape routes in an effort to beat the clock. All podcasts will be available exclusively on Pinna only with a Full-Access plan.
"At Pinna we're always looking for ways to innovate in the podcast space and actively engage kid listeners," said Maggie McGuire, CEO of Pinna. "We've married high-stakes storytelling with voice-led game play in this new series of participatory podcasts that spark kid's imaginations, tap their problem-solving skills, and put them in the driver's seat in each unique adventure. We're taking podcasts to a whole new level of interactivity and continuing to deliver on our promise of screen-free fun the whole family can enjoy together. The Yes No Audio series is a game-changer in the podcast space and we're excited to be leading the way."
