Spotify Greenroom live audio app: What is it?
Spotify Greenroom is quite similar to Clubhouse live audio rooms where one can connect with the artists. Although the app is based on Locker Room, Spotify has done off with the white-and-reddish orange colour scheme and replaced it with its signature green theme. Speaking of the functionality, the app will allow Spotify users from worldwide to join or host live audio rooms. One can turn those interactions into podcasts as well as record live conversations. At the moment, finding audio programs to listen to depends on users joining the kind of groups within the app. Also Read – Clubhouse app finally arrives on Google Play store: Here’s how Android users can download
The interface is quite similar to c. There are different groups for topics like NBA, comedy, etc. New programs on music, entertainment, etc are being planned to be added in the coming days. It will have sports content as well, something that Locker Room solely focused on.
Spotify notes that Locker Room users will see their app updated to new and redesigned Greenroom app, following its initiation.
“The Greenroom offering will continue to evolve as we learn more about what creators and listeners want from their live audio experience,” Spotify stated.
In addition, Spotify has announced a Creator Fund that will help boost the new live audio app with more ‘content in the future’.
