Currently, no new features are added to this functionality, it is just bringing it to more people around the world. Here’s the list of all the countries the feature is now going to be available in, apart from the US: Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
Support for the feature for Canada, Germany, Austria, and France is coming next week. The feature launched earlier this year for select creators on the platform, and then in August, it expanded to all US podcast creators.
