Anchor is the easiest way to make a podcast, and was built to break down the many barriers in podcasting (and we’re now powering more podcasts than any other platform in the world by doing so!). Breaking down barriers means not only making podcasting super easy, but also pushing the medium forward.
We’ve never thought about podcasting as a one-way street. Your show is a bridge between you and your listeners, and there’s nothing quite like the relationship between a podcaster and their audience. But it’s always been a technical challenge to incorporate this sense of community into your show.
Anchor’s Voice Messages feature exists to solve this problem, enabling listeners to send their favorite podcasters short audio clips that can be easily added into any episode. Before today, your listeners needed to download the Anchor mobile app in order to send you a Voice Message — which was still way too much work.
Today we’re changing that, with an update to Anchor Voice Messages that makes it easy for you to collect messages from anyone, anywhere in the world. Now your listeners can leave Voice Messages right from any browser (even on mobile!), via any podcast app, without having to download the Anchor app.
