  1. re-order segments by dragging and dropping.

    Sometimes I echo or create segments or even post call-ins and then later think it would be better in a different order. So instead of having to delete everything and find all the things you want to post again in a different order, being able to edit your stations list would be super helpful! :)

    • Separate out Episodes and Podcasts to Save Entire Episodes and Focus Podcast Posts

      Many are stations are excited to have episodes available so when they're off-air or new listeners visit the profile, they can listen to episodes to understand the station's content and focus.

      Currently, all episodes are posted as podcasts but Apple/Spotify music segments and “add to station” segments are not included. My understanding is this is because of music copyrights and rights from other Anchor stations whenever we use "add to station," we cannot have these in our episodes because it will be distributed to the Anchor podcast networks such as iTunes or Google Play.

      Would Anchor consider separating episodes and…

      • Pre-Record Broadcast

        Would be cool to have a feature that would allow us to prerecord broadcasts and pick what day and time they are published.

          • Support speech-to-text transcript for everybody who wants to make their content accessible to hearing-impaired users.

            Currently, speech-to-text is only available on videos and only for popular accounts. I have many followers who are hearing-impaired because back in my YouTube days I provided closed captions with all of my videos. I'd like to make my content accessible to my hearing-impaired followers but I'm not popular enough (not at all). It'd also be cool if you had the option to read the speech-to-text transcript while listening from the Anchor app or website, instead of it being limited to a video for sharing outside of Anchor.

                • Provide a Cursor to move the listening point of a segment

                  This feature was available in V1 and it's inclusion in V2 can help speed up the listening to a station/segment.

                  While a segment is playing provide a Cursor which I can move to arbitrary points within the segment so that I can move forward when I want to skip ahead the content I'm currently listening to, and more importantly allows me to scroll backwards if I missed or could not hear clearly what was said. with the current implementation my only choice is to hear the full segment again, whereas I may be interested to only listen to selected parts…

                  • stop automatically playing suggested, "popular" stations in Anchor.

                    This should be an option to enable/disable. A suggested, "popular" station automatically started playing while I was in my car, and the podcaster started in with profanity within the first 10 seconds. Thankfully, no one else was in the car, namely, my children, however, I was quite upset that a station I've never listed to, nor have I shown any interest in listen to, automatically started playing.

                    • Ability to crossfade clips

                      It would be great if we were able to toggle crossfading on and off when we post clips, especially crossfading from a spoken track to an interlude (because that transition is awkward).

                          So, I work in the film industry, I produce films, and just got hired as the CEO of an up and coming studio. I know you have to make money at a point, and you could follow the normal route of placing ads in between people's stations, but the problem with that is your app is dependent on great content, and that would alienate lots of creators from being able to monetize their station, so they will move to other platforms. You may have already thought of this , but instead of advertising, what if you placed yourself more as…

                            If this has not already been address thus would be so help if you could click the record button (mic icon) once to record and the once the end. This would allow a handsfree option esp. when your smart phone or tablet is mounted.

                              It would be great if I could listen to my anchor channels on the TV while I'm doing my chores.

                              The TV has the best speakers in most houses so why not utilise then with Chromecast (or airplay).

                                    • Episodes and Time Limits

                                      Since Episodes are now live - Is there a way to just upload the podcast mp3 we already have directly to the episode area? Loading it to the station and clipping it into 5 minute segments really makes it a UX barrier to those that record audio outside of the application. Or a way to auto chunk it into all the 5 minute clips we need. Making 15, 5-minute clips is super not fun.

                                      Example... I take a 75 minute podcast episode, chunk it into 15 5 minute segments to load to the station and then go to the episodes…

                                          I'd like to be able to applaud with the tone that closely fits me. It's be cool for a radio host to be able to see stats like how many of each tone applauded them. Or how many happy faces, sad faces, angry faces they received at different times during their broadcast.
