To start, all these podcast shows on the Deezer podcast tab are sorted into 15 different categories and sub-genres. These categories cater to particular themes like business news, self-help, cooking, music programs, and talks shows.

The Deezer podcast tab also hosts local and region-specific programs such as "Podcast and Chill with MacG" from South Africa and "Wild With Sarah Wilson" originally for Australian listeners. Additionally, the international streaming service also curates exclusive content with its Deezer Originals, such as the "Straight Outta Asia" series, which will be featuring five up-and-coming hip hop stars from all across Asia.

Listeners from the newly added regions of Asia, Africa, and Oceania can also access some of the streaming service's most popular podcast shows for starters - "TED Talks," "Daily," "No Such Thing As A Fish," "Serial," and "Hip Hop Saved My Life with Romesh Ranganathan."

Additionally, the Deezer podcast tab also allows downloading episodes so listeners can enjoy them at a later time, even when they are offline. Downloaded podcast episodes are currently limited to paid subscribers in Austria, Brazil, Colombia, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Find Shows That You'd Like, Based on the Time You Have

As with the music listening experience, users of the Deezer podcast tab will also see program recommendations tailored specifically just for them, based on their interests and the programs they follow - which Deezer also keeps updated by informing listeners whenever a new episode is now available. Deezer editors curate the podcast shows, both local and international content, grouped together according to genres or themes.

Aside from its global coverage, Deezer also sorts content based on the time listeners have. With its "Podcasts by duration" filter, users can find and listen to podcast shows that fit perfectly with their schedule - offering choices for 10, 20, 30, or 40 minute podcast shows.

"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," said Deezer Content VP Frédéric Antelme in a company press release. "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."

The Podcast Tab can be found conveniently next to the Music Tab within the app or website, now available worldwide. Fans can start listening through the Podcasts Section within the Deezer App.
