Deezer prepares to battle competitors by adding podcasts and radio shows

Music streaming services are preparing for the upcoming launch of Apple's own product, and are tasked with looking at ways to differentiate themselves. Deezer is working to incorporate multiple sources of entertainment in its official app to allow streamers to access different content without having to boot up multiple apps. The new podcast catalogue will be powered by Stitcher, which the company acquired last October.

The podcast feature will provide access to those who reside in France, Sweden and the UK before Deezer expands into more territories. More than 20,000 shows are available and Deezer hopes the catalogue will help the company attract new subscribers.

  • I think a name change should go along with the updated features. Deezer is not a good name IMO.
  • It's annoying that Deezer doesn't let you play all your music, you have to play an album or a specific playlist. But you can't play all your albums. They should add that before podcasts. Sent from the iMore App
  • I second @offdahglass
    Americans will never get behind a product called Deezer. It sounds soooo Euro.
