Spotify has launched a live audio app called Greenroom.
Gatekeepers News reports that Swedish online music streaming giant, Spotify has found answers to the popular platform – Clubhouse by launching a live audio app called Greenroom.
The live audio app allows users to join live discussions or host their own.
Greenroom was launched after Spotify acquired the company behind the popular sports-focused audio platform Locker Room, Betty Labs.
Over the past year, San Francisco-based Clubhouse led the way in social audio, along with podcasts
According to the site AppMagic, Clubhouse has been downloaded over 18 million times, since December.
Meanwhile, other tech giants have also jumped into the live audio sector with Facebook hosting Live Audio Rooms and Twitter launching Spaces in December.
All these platforms will have to compete with Discord, which has been offering live audio since 2015.
Although Discord has more than 140 million users, it has been more focused on video game players.
However, Spotify has the advantage of already being an audio platform through its focus on music and, more recently, podcasts.
