  1. Supporting binaural 3D audio / stereo sound

    I would love it if Anchor support binaural 3D audio because right now I think the app isn't supporting it after a few tries of uploading binaural 3D audio.

      We have no immediate plans to support stereo sound – it’s a tradeoff for speed and performance, and we’ve found that most people find the latter more important to their experience. However, we’ll keep investigating this and will let you know if we’re able to support this in the future!

    • Suggested stations on my Carousel

      Allow me a way of turning on and off the showing of Suggested stations on my Carousel. At times I find the repeated showing of the Suggested list annoying and slowing down my scroll thru my list of Favorite stations on the Carousel. Give me a way to control when I want to see the Suggested list, or put it on another page altogether, such as the Search page as another item in the list of Categorized Stations, or a Tab, or some other UI you find useful. But please do not impose the view of this station in the…

        For now, we’ve made a change which should prevent you from seeing Suggested unless you don’t have active Favorites in your dial. We may revisit this in the future, but don’t have any current plans to turn off Suggested entirely.

      • Add background images to new waves

        I saw something about a photo attachment in another post, but thought adding a background image to a new wave could be a way to increase user engagement and visually represent the wave content. I realize that Anchor is audio-centric, but also know that most podcast/audio on the web has some visual element. A quick (rough) mockup is attached. Just a thought. Cheers :)

            We have no plans at this time to expose the list of who has favorited your station, but will let you know if/when that changes. Thanks!

          • Add support for earlier versions on Android

            Currently on Android 4.4 and I was wondering if the app could extend support for other versions of Android. Thanks

              We’d love to support earlier versions of Android, but unfortunately we’re using several modern APIs and services that don’t support Android that far back – so at this time, we have no immediate plans (or any feasible way) to do so. So sorry for the inconvenience; we’ll definitely let you know if this changes in the near future.

            • Allow Profiles to be Private

              Just like Instagram, Twitter, Soundcloud, etc. it would be really nice to be able to NOT broadcast to the whole world, I.E., to have a profile be locked so that only those I want to subscribe can subscribe.

              • Offer RSS feeds

                It would be great to be able to let people subscribe in ways they're used to, like RSS.

                    At this time, we want to keep Anchor audio first, so we don’t have any current plans to allow visual attachments to waves. This may change in the future, so feel free to get in touch if you have other suggestions or feedback about this idea.

                  • I know we can vote on ideas, but can we vote against ideas?

                    There are certain suggestions that I read that I definitely DO NOT want (like unlimited length for waves) - I think it would be great if we could vote against ideas.

                      Hi there! Unfortunately, this is a limitation of the platform we’re using for voting on feature requests – there isn’t a way to downvote ideas. You can, however, feel free to email us your thoughts or leave a comment on a feature if you have a different opinion!

                    • Unlimited length for the first wave.

                      It's great that we have a limit on the wave length, but if only the first wave were unlimited, it would allow us to post an entire podcast, and then have people to comment and interact in 1 minute waves. The 2 minutes limit for the first wave cut the potencial of Wave for deeper ideas and could be solved removing the limite for just the first wave.

                        For now, we’re going to stick to the 2 minute limit, but we may revisit this in the future. One thing you could do is link to the full podcast in your caption and record a short wave describing it and opening it up to questions or comments.

                        Thank you for the feedback!
