Anchor is a whole new way to experience audio. It's the first platform built for an audio-first world.

As featured in:
* The New York Times
* The Verge
* TechCrunch
* Business Insider
* Mashable
* The Boston Globe

In Anchor, everyone has a station. Stations are made up of bite-sized segments (voice, music, news, sound effects) that make it super easy to discover, hear, and share your new favorite audio. When you hear something you love, applaud it. (It’s a Like you can actually hear!)

Whatever you’re into, we can almost guarantee there’s a station on Anchor about it. Some examples:

* Craving news you can trust? Get first-person reports from journalists, academics, and humans all over the world.

* Sports fan? Take your pick of daily hot takes from experts and superfans of every athletic pursuit you can imagine.

* Looking for your new favorite song? Listen to stations from your favorite musicians, bands, and labels.

* Obsessed with mother nature? Follow along with scientists and jungle explorers to get up close and personal with the animal kingdom.

* Love reality tv? Hear former Bachelor contestants cover all the drama and gossip you crave from the universe of the Bachelor Nation.

* Super into Googling random medical problems? Hear real life doctors answering questions and talking about all kinds of medicine news and stories from the OR.

* Into video games, comedy, philosophy, tech, politics, horror movies, robot voices? Want a personalized station to give you news and weather every morning? Those are on Anchor too.

* Love podcasts? Hear recommendations and sound bites from some of the most well known pods to undiscovered gems that you need to hear.

...we could go on, but you should really just take a listen for yourself.

And if your favorite topic isn’t a thing yet on Anchor, make it yourself! You can instantly broadcast your voice, sound bites from the news, call-ins from your listeners, high-quality interludes designed by world-class musicians and sound designers, and even full tracks from Apple Music and Spotify. Anchor uses the familiar Stories format you already know and love - so anything you add to your station will be available for 24 hours (unless you decide to save or export it). It’s like having an entire sound booth in your pocket, packed with all the tools you can imagine.

Customer Reviews


Anchor brings a new "radio" experience to users. With this app, you can listen to and record your very own radio station. Absolutely great concept. Some station "favoriting" may need some work. The applause feature is cool! Great app!

Ads - <sigh>

Have been away from Anchor for awhile. Opened the app today after the update. Very sorry to hear ads embedded in the content. I wanted to record this comment directly in Anchor, but the navigation tools are very confusing now. Oh, well . . .

I had high hopes...

But those were dashed when I just now learned that what I record only stays for 24 hours.


I'd like to be able to go back and see what's developed on subjects. Anything I've recorded is gone.

The whole world isn't Snapchat.

Not everyone wants that model.

I think I don't want this app anymore. #SorryNotSorry
