There are sure to be a lot of podcasts coming in the next few months with more time at home and a LOT to say.
One of the world’s favourite podcast-making apps, Anchor, have launched a new feature that will get people recording their own podcast’s in no time. The new feature allows users to record a podcast directly from their browser without even creating an account.
The feature is called Record With Friends 2.0 and allows up to 5 people to join and record together. There will need to be a host using the Anchor app but they can then invite up to 4 others to join in with their say straight from their web browser.
The Anchor host will be given a link which they share to invite others to take part with microphones from their home. It’s a great solution to getting people together to talk when we are facing a period of social distancing and are encouraged to see as few people in person as possible.
When friends and podcast invitees click on the link it will take them to their preferred browser to start recording their voice in the group channel. Anchor says that whilst they don’t support Google Chrome on mobile yet, it is “coming soon”.
Early last year Spotify bought Anchor’s podcast platform to enhance their burgeoning and flourishing podcast content. Their music streaming platform now even allows users to create and upload podcasts directly from the Spotify app.
We expect that the next month will be the busiest month on record for new podcasts.
