Samsung began adding an option for listening to podcasts in Samsung Free earlier this year through a background update, but the feature was not available everywhere. It still isn’t, but thankfully, it’s now reaching more customers. Samsung announced today that the podcast feature in Samsung Free is going live in several European markets.
The service is compatible with select Galaxy phones running Android 11, and it’s now available in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK.
Various podcasts can now be accessed by Galaxy device users in these markets, though as you would expect, podcast availability differs by region. In Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, customers can access podcasts from ProSiebenSat1, Axel Springer Group, Podimo, Red Bull, and other channels.
In the UK, Samsung Free offers a one-stop shop for podcasts from Red Bull, CNN, The Guardian, The Economist, and more. In France, Samsung Free users can now listen to Nouvelles Écoutes, Louie Media, and Binge Audio, while in Italy, the platform offers various podcasts from Storielibere, Piano P, and La Gazzetta dello Sport.
No need to download additional apps
The beauty of Samsung Free is that it offers access to new content without needing additional downloads. Users can play mobile games directly from the “Play” section in Samsung Free without having to download the apps themselves, and similarly, they now have access to podcasts in Samsung Free from the “Listen” section without having to access the Play / Galaxy Store or signing up to additional services.
