Anghami has launched an AI-powered personalised podcast which it says is the first of its kind in the world.

The platform is also releasing its first-ever daily news podcast, called the Anghami AI Newsroom, which is generated solely  by Artificial Intelligence.

Recently, UAE-based Mirchi  launched what it believes is the world’s first AI presenter on a commercial radio station. 

Anghami’s new features allow users to create their own personalised podcasts, by providing Anghami’s AI with a set of topics that will then generate a customised daily digest, available through a premium subscription tier.

Topics range from local and global news, to music, sports, technology and business.

To enhance personalisation, users can select their preferred voices, choose from a variety of languages including English, Arabic and French, and customise their own podcast with a unique description and title.

For its AI Newsroom podcast, it autonomously researches and curates relevant topics, delivers concise summaries, and records content in multiple languages, thus acting as its own editor.
Fresh episodes are released every morning on Anghami, recapping the news from the previous day, and are powered by OpenAI’s GPT models.

Elie Habib, Co-Founder of Anghami, said: “This is a testament to our ongoing commitment to innovation and delivering exceptional user experiences. This is a significant milestone for Anghami and the audio streaming industry in the MENA region”.
