With the Clubhouse boom, a space in the market for voice as a form of networking and social interaction became evident, which clearly in times of pandemic the need was amplified. The Clubhouse has had an explosion of popularity in recent months, and this week Spotify has also joined the fray with its new product: Greenroom.

The app follows a similar concept where users can create rooms and chat openly in them, but it has some details worth knowing about the app:

1. Available on Android and iOS:

Unlike CLubhouse, Greenroom has already released apps for Android and iOS in 135 markets. For now the app is only available in English, but translations should be on the way.

“The Greenroom offering will continue to evolve as we learn more about what creators and listeners want from their live audio experience. We'll also bring exciting new programming to the platform covering music, culture and entertainment themes, as well as the sports content for which the Locker Room has been known.”

2. Live chat:

Greenroom also brings a chat functionality in the rooms, where users can chat by text, send gif links, which ends up bringing even more interactivity to the conversations.

3. Room recording:

Greenroom also offers the option to record the rooms, and send the audio file at the end, which can later be published as a Podcast on the users' preferred platform.

4. Separate App:

Unlike the Twitter approach, where Twitter Space is part of the main app, at the moment Greenroom has its own app, which can be accessed with your Spotify login.

5. Creator Fund:

Unfortunately still only available in the US, Greenroom will also be part of the Spotify Creator Fund, which will help audio creators monetize their work.

We believe Spotify has an opportunity not just to enable live streams, but to help with discovery, drive consumption and accelerate the growth of the live category overall. Unveiling the app is our opportunity to start laying the groundwork for the exciting list of content and capabilities Spotify has in our live audio venture, concludes Spotify
