Spotify is joining the live audio craze with Greenroom, a new live audio app available on iOS and Android.
In March, Spotify announced the acquisition of Betty Labs, the company behind live audio app Locker Room, marking “the addition of live audio” to its ecosystem.
Now, Locker Room is being renamed and relaunched as Spotify Greenroom, with expanded features and capabilities.
So, what can you do with Greenroom? Well, apart from hosting or participating in live audio rooms, you can also chat with other participants and even record your sessions to “complement your on-demand content with live conversations.” The latter is a feature missing from pretty much every other live audio app out there.
Spotify is also making it easy for users to log into Greenroom – they can simply use their Spotify details. The app isn’t forgetting its Locker Room roots though – in addition to “new programming” coming to the platform (music, culture, and entertainment topics), Greenroom will also feature the sports content that Locker Room was known for.
In addition to the above, Spotify is kickstarting the creator-centric view of things with a Spotify Creator Fund to help live audio creators monetize their work. Anyone can sign up to find out more about participating when the program opens later this summer.
Spotify is now making Greenroom available on iOS and Android in over 135 markets around the world.
