Voxnest: Spotify conquers Europe for podcasting
October 30, 2019 · 2.3 minutes to read
Voxnest claim that Spotify is now more popular than Apple Podcasts in most of continental Europe, South and Central America: Spotify claimed another six countries in September, the company says, based on listener data from the Voxnest Audience Network. The main holdouts are the US, Canada, the UK and Australia (all countries where Apple has around 50% market share).
Voxnest has also partnered with Audion, an audio technology company based in France, to be a European ad partner for Voxnest’s dynamic ad insertion technology. “We believe dynamic ad insertion will only continue to become more and more popular, and we’re thrilled to really kick it up a notch for our European users,” Voxnest told us.
