Tech Desk June 21, 2021

Spotify has launched Spotify Greenroom to enable fans and creators to connect in new ways the company announced in a press release.

‘Since bringing the Locker Room app into the fold, we’ve been working to expand its capabilities, with the goal of creating a live audio experience that will delight creators and listeners everywhere. And we wanted to do it with a Spotify twist that operated as an extension of the app already loved by 356 million listeners. That’s why we renamed it “Spotify Greenroom,” as our Founder and CEO, Daniel Ek, announced in an episode of the Spotify: For the Record podcast’ Spotify wrote.

The app is available on iOS and Android in over 135 countries.

The app includes live rooms like Clubhouse, with ability for any user to host or participate and recording capabilities so users can complement their on-demand content with live conversations as well as chat controls. You can join, a group or even create your own.

Elaborating on the new offering Spotify said: The Greenroom offering will continue to evolve as we learn more about what creators and listeners want from their live audio experience. We’ll also bring exciting new programming to the platform spanning music, culture, and entertainment topics in addition to the sports content Locker Room has been known for. 

We believe Spotify has an opportunity not only to enable live broadcasts, but to aid discovery, drive consumption, and accelerate growth of the live category overall. Today’s app unveiling is our opportunity to begin laying the foundation for the exciting roster of content and capabilities Spotify has in store in our venture into live audio.
