Podcast fans around the world can now discover a huge range of shows, wherever they are
Johannesburg, 20 April 2021: Deezer’s ‘Podcast’ tab is now finally available for audio fans across Asia, Africa and Oceania*. Our Podcast tab, previously called “Shows,” helps audio fans find their favourite podcasts in one convenient place.
Podcasts are now available for all Deezer users in over 180 countries. Audio fans can discover shows across 15 categories and sub-genres. These include themes like self-help, business news, cooking, music and talk shows. The Podcast tab is also home to local shows such as “Podcast and Chill with MacG” in South Africa and “Wild With Sarah Wilson” in Australia. You’ll also find exclusive Deezer Originals content like our “Straight Outta Asia” series, featuring five up-and-coming hiphop stars in Asia.
Fans can see podcast recommendations that are tailored just for them, as well as the latest episodes of their favourite podcasts. For those in a hurry, Deezer is the only streaming service to offer “Podcasts by duration.” Here you can find an episode that fits perfectly with your schedule. You can choose from 10, 20, 30 or 40 minute podcasts.
“Our listeners love podcasts and we’ve had a sevenfold increase in monthly podcast users since 2017. Now we’re expanding the offering to users in Asia, Africa, and Oceania. We expect more fans around the world to turn to podcasts at home or on-the-go. Our country selector option also makes it possible to switch your location and listen to any local podcast in its native language,” said Frédéric Antelme, Deezer’s VP of Content.
The ‘Podcast’ Tab can be found next to the Music tab, available worldwide. Start listening now through the Deezer app deezer.com/en/channels/podcasts.
