Deezer’s ‘Podcast Tab’ – previously named Shows – is now available worldwide in over 180 countries.
Now available across Asia, Africa and Oceania, 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. There’s also exclusive Deezer Originals content such as the “Straight Outta Asia” series, featuring five up-and-coming hip hop stars in Asia.
Users can see podcast recommendations that are tailored just for them, as well as the latest episodes of their favourite podcasts.
Deezer says it’s the only streaming service to offer “podcasts by duration,” where you can find an episode that fits with your schedule. There are options to choose from 10, 20, 30 or 40 minute podcasts.
Frédéric Antelme, Deezer’s VP of Content says: “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.”
