  1. Create a web player for stations and allow embedding, similar to Soundcloud or Spotify.

    I'd like to embed my station on my blog and other places. It'd be great to have an bit of code that allowed users to embed their station on other parts of the web.

      To embed your station, visit the web link (you can get it either through your profile in the mobile app or by logging in to the Anchor website), click the share button in the player, and copy the embed code. Hope this helps!

    • Add background music to recordings like in the web clipper

      The web clipper allows for background music to be easily added to a voice recording. This should be on the app as well!

      • allow downloading of individual media files

        I'm a podcaster. I'd love to use Anchor as a voice feedback channel for my podcast. To be able to use the submitted feedback on my show I need to open the media files in other apps like Dropbox, Ferrite or save them to iCloud Drive.

            Hello! This is actually already possible, although it’s a bit buried (sorry about that). Head over to your profile in the app, tap the ••• menu icon in the top right corner, and select Profile Settings. Scroll down and you’ll see an option to toggle on auto-archive, which will automatically add all of your segments to your archive every 24 hours.

          • Notify me when my favorites post something new

            My favorite stations post a stream that is available for only 24 hours and I do not get notified about it. Does that seem right to you?

              You should receive a notification any time there’s new content in one of your favorites, assuming that you have caught up on everything that was there before. Please let us know if these notifications aren’t working consistently for you!

            • Public profile page

              Everybody can listen to waves on the web but cannot access any profile page. Thats sad :/

                You can now copy and share a URL to your Anchor profile from within the app. Look in your profile for the gear icon in the top right corner; tap that and you’ll see an option to “share this profile.”

                This is the first iteration of web profiles, intended more for sharing and following than for browsing or listening, but stay tuned for lots of updates coming soon!

              • Ability to bookmark a wave so you can go back and respond

                I don't know if this would even be possible, but it would be nice to be able to have the ability to flag a wave. there are many times I'm listening to anchor and want to respond, but I can't respond at that moment for some reason or other (like I'm working...lol!!). And then when I have time to respond I can't find the original wave

                  To save a wave for later, tap the menu icon (the three dots in the upper right corner) and select “Save this wave for later.” You can access your saved waves at any time by going to your profile, tapping the gear in the upper right corner, and selecting “Listen to saved waves.” Enjoy!

                  (Note that for now, this feature only works on origin waves, not replies.)

                    • Possibility to download the mp3 of a complete conversation, with all the replies.

                      It would be great to have the possibility to download a mp3 of a conversation/debate/interview when it's "finish", with all the replies.
                      Good for the podcast industry, we can use it to make awesome content and to share the file outside the app for the people without an iPhone or without the app.

                        This is now possible in the latest version of Anchor! Tap the “send” button (the icon looks like a box with an arrow in it) and select the Export option. This will send you a email with a link to download the .mp4 file, along with a permalink and embed code, of the conversation. Note that this is only possible on your own waves.

                          As of today’s App Store update, you can now pause any time you want while you’re recording. Just release the record button or take the phone away from your ear and it’ll automatically pause. You can resume recording the same way as always. (Plus, you can now delete individual segments, so if you make a mistake you don’t have to start over from the beginning!)

                        • Making Logout button easy to locate

                          Logging out of the app should be simplified. So instead of having to select Settings/Edit your Profile/ and then click on the logout button. It would be great to see the logout from the main Settings list.

                          For example:
                          Settings/Share this Profile
                          Settings/Edit your Profile
                          Settings/Logout

                          • Perhaps find a way to save battery life when using the app

                            The anchor app is an absolutely awesome platform! However I find myself having to restrain use throughout the day, due to the huge drain on battery life.

                            Would love a way to be able to have battery not drain as much so that I can use the app more during my day

                                This feature is available in the latest version of Anchor. Here’s how it works:

                                - On any reply to your own wave, tap the menu button (it looks like 3 vertical dots). In addition to the old report and block options, you’ll see a new option that says “Hide this wave.”
                                - If you choose to hide the reply, other listeners will not see it in your conversation – whether they listen in the app, on the web, in an embedded wave, or in an exported conversation like a podcast.
                                - The person who recorded the wave will not be made aware that their wave is hidden.
                                - You can always unhide replies by navigating to the “All” tab at the top of your conversation which will appear as soon as something has been hidden.

                                Let us know if you have any questions or need any help with this! Please…

                              • Change the click behavior on avatar in the avatar strip

                                This proposed change builds up on 2 previous requests (unlistened markers, and keep avatar strip visible at all times). I suggest that when you tap on an avatar you will navigate to the first unlistened to wave of that person in the current Convo instead of being switched to their "profile". Maybe add the switch to profile as a response to double-tap on the avatar.

                                  • "Listened to" marker

                                    Similar to how emails have a Read/Unread marker Anchor should have a ListenedTo marker on waves which I already listened to. When coming back to a Conversation which I participated in earlier I would like to listen to only new waves namely, those which were added since the last time I reviewed the conversation.

                                      In the latest version of Anchor, check out this (very subtle) change. As soon as you start playing a wave, its playcount (the little number on the play button) will change from grey to blue. Any waves with a blue playcount are waves you’ve already heard. This works for replies too. Hope this helps!

                                      I'd love a box that pops up when you click "delete" or "report" a wave as opposed to just reporting or deleting it. I've accidentally deleted a wave before and I know folks have accidentally reported a wave as well. Just a little dialogue box that pops up that says "Are you sure you want to delete/report this wave?" would be so great!

                                      • Disable notifications off old waves on conversations we join

                                        If I reply on a wave with lots of wave replies I suddenly receive notifications on waves that occurred before mine.
                                        This causes a sudden influx of notifications potentially hiding notifications of tag/share/reply by pushing them off the screen.

                                        • Share Function Improvement (something like retweeting)

                                          Hey, this is Josh!!

                                          Love the app.

                                          I spend a LOT of time on brand new accounts trying to interact with people, and I would love to have the ability to re-wave either top-level or replies so they post to my profile.

                                          It would also be cool to be able to do a 30 second intro to it to say why we're re-waving.

                                          There's a lot of really great waves that get buried in reply threads, and I feel weird sharing them with the native share option without the ability to explain why I'm sharing it even with my closest…

                                            Check out echoes in the newest version of Anchor! Tap the share icon in the top right corner of any wave and you’ll see an option to echo the wave to your followers so they can enjoy it too :)
