We’re excited to announce that we’ve added another distribution outlet to our one-click / tap distribution function: Podcast Addict.
Podcast Addict is the most popular and downloaded podcast listening app on the Google Play Store, according to the platform they have had over 9 million downloads and are home to 750 thousand shows. The platform’s importance is sure to make it a fundamental distribution point for all podcasters as Android’s share of the market continues to grow.
Why podcasters should care about the Android market
Up until now, iOS devices have been seen as market dominators in the podcasting field, but if we look at the global mobile market over the course of the last years, Android device use has continued to increase, with a reported 75% of the global population choosing Android over iOS. This trend has been further cemented by figures like 44% of Americans choosing Android and a current market difference of just 2.3% between the two in the UK. Plus, with booming podcast markets like Brazil, where 40% of all internet users have listened to podcasts and 90% of the population use Android devices, it’s clear to see why it’s such a crucial distribution point for podcasters. With this in mind, as podcasting becomes increasingly global, it is undeniable how important the Android market is becoming for podcasters across the world.
What is Spreaker’s one-click / tap distribution?
When approaching distribution within the podcast market it’s worth noting one crucial difference between iOS and Android – iOS has one built-in distribution point (Apple Podcasts) while Android doesn’t. This results in a much more fragmented listening environment on Android. Our One-Click Distribution tool simplifies this complexity, giving you simple distribution to all the essential platforms, whatever device and app your listeners use.
We launched the syndication tool earlier this year in a bid to create the most streamlined system on the market. Our tool allows users to share their podcast with all the major platforms in seconds and is the most advanced tool of its kind on the market, as we continue to add new distribution points it will only continue to get better!
