Hello.

Deezer implemented Podcasts in Finland.

I’ve been using it very much. Feedback I noted.

First of all I subscribe to The Minimalists podcast and Perspectives podcast by Ashley Berges.

These podcasts are great! Now. Let me say what I want to improve.

All podcasts should be sorted also by language. How can I find all finnish?

In finnish translation it is Shows, I wish they translated it in sidebar or bottom bars. This is unacceptable to have English term in between of all things finnish, please make it happen.

I searched for BPD podcasts, and most I wanted to listen, I didn’t. Why?

Before you may ask what is BPD. Borderline Personality Disorder.

Quality content to learn about it on Deezer Podcasts. Especially after abuse from BPD person.

I find in search one episode to listen, but have no time or want to listen it now, how do I add to listen later? Could be most needed function for me and many other as well. Can you please fix it.

Also I do not like about podcasts that it plays right away next podcast. I want to listen one podcast at a time, because otherwise it will go second and third, and you finally notice three hours passed.

I mean on the music side this is not needed mostly, as most songs are 5 minutes, and you literally can play them right away and dj mixes put a like on them, even temporary 😉 Podcasts on the other hand are about 45-60 minutes, which is time consuming to listen as you find it.

Podcasts should have also playlist options and it’s own like a podcast episode option.

Create Liked episodes playlist.

I used Google Music for tunes and YouTube for dj mixes and Google Podcasts for podcasts. Nowadays I use all of them as Deezer Premium and enjoy tunes, dj mixes and podcasts. This is handsome! Nowadays I use as less Google as possible, and Deezer is my home for these.

Nowadays I use YouTube only for motivational or educational videos and music videos hard dance.

Please improve Deezer Podcasts, it needs only a bit to fix tiny issues it has.

Thank you so much for making Deezer Premium better place to enjoy!

Good time of a day.

Thank you for sending feedback to the teams.

I am right now on a podcast 135: Mom was right, TV rots the brain by Ashley Berges and it hits the nail out! I used to listen Podcasts from Google Podcasts, but for now Deezer is more usable.

I can listen music, dj mixes, albums and podcasts all in one.

Needs improvements, but hopefully you can put some resources on it.

More feedback. Search is needed to podcast section inside a podcast.

I give you an example. Live Your True Life Perspectives with Ashley Berges podcast has 647 episodes. She is talented podcast and talks much about relationships, bpd and self improvement.

I want to let’s say to find podcast with exact word. No way to do that.

Of course you can use Deezer search box, but what if I want to filter on same page?

CTRL+F search bar in Chrome does nothing because page is not designed search in mind.

Please may you implement these if you have time in your team.

After 1 week of use, the things that are preventing me from switching to Deezer for podcasts are:

  • no automatic downloading of new episodes
  • no automatic deleting of played episodes
  • no 1,5x and 2x speed
  • limited catalogue

If these 4 points were sorted, I’d ditch my current podcast client.

Some nice to have features:

  • trim silence feature
  • volume levelling (like Overcast, not just boosting volume)
  • Podcast smart playlists

Thank you for this add.

I never thought I missed all of this until you posted.

I hope they can send this feedback as well to developers.

It is still an issue, at least on Android, it plays same podcast over and over. I listened it on the go, and turned out, listened second time at home. I mean I heard this one:  The Survival of Human Kind Depends on Clear Communication [Ep: 648]. In my opinion it should either stop or go to next unheard podcast by this podcast specialist Ashley Berges. She’s great, by any means I keep listening her, but twice in a row… like I said you could listen the same for hours before even realising.

Please fix this issue, play only once and either stop with it, or tune in to similar unheard podcast.

In Web App at my laptop didn’t notice this problem, here it stops after podcast.

Hey @teaumaz 

Speed settings, increasing catalogue, are on the plans. I believe the automatic downloads could be considered too, but maybe for the beginning of next year. If we continue pushing for it, it should happen. We're super committed to improve our Shows tab and podcast playback :thumbsup_tone2:

Hey @hpguru is episode 648 not playing properly? Could I have the exact link for it, please?
