  1. Make interview calls available for other countries! (Indonesia)

    I'm radio DJ and never been happier to find an app like anchor. I love interviewing people over the phone, and disappointed when i was trying to use the feature.

    Interview calls only available for us numbers only. Sad. Make this happen. Please.

    Thanks

    • While listening to podcasts, clapping irl gets picked up by your microphone instead of manually clicking the screen!

      You could turn this feature on or off in the Anchor app's settings:
      If you let the app have access to your mic, you can clap in real life and it will auto clap for you on the app. That way you can clap without clicking the clap button. Way easier and would allow freedom to remain hands off on your phone while listening!

      • Flesh tone color hands.. and other available emoji

        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.

        • Increase the 24hr time limit to 48hrs

          This is a real issue for those of us on the other side of the planet and visa versa.. it makes anchor very difficult to use when half the day has gone to sleep etc.. also for those that may or may not have been offline for over 24 hrs. for whatever reason..

              • Expand desktop functionality (call-ins, skip 15 seconds, etc.)

                I love the anchor app itself, but some of my listeners use desktop exclusively to listen, and there is no ability to call in using existing audio on desktop. Also, the website version would be better if it had some of the features of the app like skip 15 seconds, applause, and episodes.

                Thank you!

                • Privacy Options

                  Being able to set if you want a certain segment to be public, or for just the people that have your station favorited would be amazing! I think this also might be a good way to get more people to join the app because the incentive would to be able to hear content, but only if they're logged in or something.

                  Maybe even the ability to create a group and only they'll be able to hear certain things would be fabulous too! :) Love the app!!!

                    Give each station a small one-page website with archived segments and today's segments viewable.

                      We are currently beta testing a feature called Epsiodes on IOS that would allow other users to see your stations previous segments. Hopefully, this will be rolled out soon! As for a web page for each station, you can log into anchor.fm, click on your station, and use that URL as a personal web page of your station.

                    • longer segments!!

                      with the new podcast update (something AMAZING btw) we deserves at least the option of recording 1h clips. making cutting and pasting together 5min audios to make a podcast episode is quite frankly annoying and can ruin the "flow" of the podcast. however with this quick change you could really get into some pretty cool stuff!! <3

                      • Pinned segment

                        I think it would be cool to have a pinned segment at the top of my station that only new listeners would hear. It would be a way to introduce my station and what I like to talk about and what music I like to play. Or perhaps it could be embedded in the profile and people can listen to that as a way to hear an introduction to the station. Let me know what you think.

                        • Show Us How Long Segments Are

                          It would be very helpful to see how long each segment is before it plays. We had visual cues on Anchor v1 but I think it would be even better to know specifically with a time.

                          Let us know how long it's going to take to listen. Is it a 1 min segment or 5? This would make Anchor much more user-friendly and give us the ability to come back if it's a long segment and we're unable to listen.

                                  I don't want to get fussy recording with Anchor (for that I'll use something like Ferrite Recording Studio). But I've heard several segments that could have benefitted from a basic compression and normalization before posting. I'd love to have these available in Anchor. Ideally, Anchor would process the audio and proactively ask users if they want to apply the modification before posting. YouTube has some video tweaking tools like this.

                                    It would be really nice to be able to edit your account and have full playback of songs on a station when using anchor.fm on desktop. Using the desktop platform to use and edit our stations would be highly beneficial to many users who are looking to get a wider array of customization and creative abilities from anchor.fm!

                                        I was able to downloaded my first 2 waves as an mp4 from the app to my iPhone... I did my 3rd wave yesterday and can't seem to do it anymore...

                                        Is that function still available, and if so what is the process again

                                        I'm using an iPhone, do I need to change any setting on the phone

                                        Thanks

                                            We’d like to better support multiple accounts or give you a way to run multiple stations from a single account. For now, the best way to run multiple stations is to create a different Anchor account for each station. Each account will need its own unique email address (or social login) to sign up. Note that you can use the gmail + trick, ie you could have 3 accounts with the following “unique” email addresses:
                                            - me@gmail.com
                                            - me+2@gmail.com
                                            - me+another@gmail.com

                                            The emails will all go to your primary “me@gmail.com” account, but our system will register them as separate signups. We hope this helps!
