Anchor has introduced Anchor 3.0. It features a re-imagined mobile app built for effortless podcast creation. The app is free for iOS and Android. Anchor 3.0 has a brand new web dashboard with creation tools and analytics, expanded distribution options, and unlimited podcast hosting that is 100% free.
Anchor heard time and time and time again that what creators truly wanted was to make a real podcast and have it heard everywhere people are listening. That’s where Anchor 3.0 comes in.
Coming off the heels of our Series A funding, Anchor 3.0 removes all of the difficulty of getting a high quality podcast made and distributed everywhere people listen to audio.
Anchor’s app for iOS and Android has been re-imagined specifically for making a podcast, right from your phone. Open the app, and you are taken straight into creation, where the app automatically builds a new episode for your podcast every day you use it. From there, you can easily record (by yourself or with up to 10 friends), add full songs from Apple Music or Spotify for your Anchor listeners, add a wide range of transitions, or broadcast voice messages from your listeners.
Voice messages have been redesigned to enable direct, private conversations with the ability for either party to publish the audio to an episode. The app now allows creators to rearrange segments in their episodes and build episodes from new or previous content. The listening section of the app has been updated to better provide great audio for you to listen to.
With Anchor 3.0, you can now make or manage your podcast using brand-new creators. The web tools sync seamlessly with the Anchor app, making it easy to switch back and forth between experiences.
Anchor now lets creators seamlessly distribute episodes across top podcasting apps with the press of a button. This includes Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Overcast, Pocket Casts, Stitcher, and more. Creators can also distribute podcasts made with Anchor to Spotify.
