Samsung brings Podcasts to Samsung Free

Sshows from Red Bull & CNN will be available to customers in UK from today

Samsung has launched the ‘Listen Tab’ on Samsung Free, a one-stop app for entertainment. Available exclusively to Samsung Galaxy device owners, the Listen Tab gives customers access to a huge selection of top global and local podcasts for free.

With the Listen Tab, customers will have great podcasts right at their fingertips without the need to download an app.

The Listen Tab is designed to offer quick and easy access to Samsung Galaxy customers, allowing them to easily subscribe to their favorite shows. There is also a special curation section within the Listen tab, which will help Galaxy owners see what is new on the platform and trending podcasts which might appeal to them.

In collaboration with Acast and other podcasting partners, listeners across multiple European countries will be able to have access to top podcasts from major channels and media companies such as CNN, Red Bull, The Guardian and The Economist, among others.

The Listen Tab is populated with a huge range of podcast providers for free and without the need for additional subscriptions.

“The expansion of Samsung Free allows us to deliver yet more top entertainment to our customers in a way that is most convenient to them,’ said Richard Jakeman, European Head of Business Development – Smart TV, Mobile and Gaming at Samsung.

‘Without the need to download more apps, and with a simple swiping function to access their libraries, Samsung Galaxy users can personalise their listening with alerts for their favourite shows and subscriptions feeds giving them great flexibility to listen to a wide variety of content on-the-go or in the comfort of their own home”.

Samsung Free combines TV, games, news, and podcasts into a preloaded, lag-less, and costless source of content you can access with a single rightward swipe.

To access Samsung Free, upgrade to Android 11. Any Samsung Galaxy Device from 2021 will offer Samsung Free preloaded, while other users including users of Bixby home and Samsung Daily can choose Samsung Free from the Galaxy Store.

Leandro Saucedo, Chief Business & Strategy Officer at Acast, said:

“The launch of Samsung Free provides a one-click solution for listeners around the world to find their favourite podcasts, and increases exposure for our creators to millions of potential new fans.

For a major household brand like Samsung to show such strong support for podcasting – all within the open ecosystem – is more hugely positive news for the entire industry.”

Samsung Free Listen tab is now available in the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain, France and Italy.
