With today’s updates to Anchor Videos, it’s easier than ever to create and share customized, transcribed videos to let your audio run wild on the Internet.

For years, people have been saying it’s not possible for audio to go viral. We firmly disagree, which is a big part of why we built Anchor and one of the reasons we’re so obsessed with making audio easy to create and share.

We’ve been making big strides on the sharing front, most notably when we launched Anchor Videos a couple weeks ago, giving anyone the ability to share a beautiful, transcribed video that autoplays right inline on social media.

Anchor Videos have been a resounding success, finally giving people (and brands) the ability to quickly and easily share their audio, whether they’re promoting a podcast, sharing a quote, or just using it as a quick way to get their voice heard. And today, we’re announcing a few new features that make Anchor Videos even more powerful.

Trim any video before sharing

Share a video of anyone’s segment

Customize your video

So to summarize, Anchor Videos look great, are easy to generate, and now they’re more customizable to suit your needs. If you haven’t tried them yet, you should totally do so now.

More ways to share your Anchor audio

Share a link to your station, a specific segment, or a permanent episode.

Remember that segments are only available in your station for 24 hours, so if you want to share a permanent link, you can save your audio to an episode and share that link instead.

Embed your station or any episode.

Remember that segments are only available in your station for 24 hours, so if you want to embed audio permanently, you should create an episode and embed that instead of your station. But if you want a quick way for people to hear the latest audio from you at any given time, embedding your station will work nicely!

Add audio to your own station.

There you have it. Audio is suddenly shareable, and it certainly can go viral. We hope this helps you get your own voice heard, and that you go forth and share.

You can grab the free Anchor app for iOS or Android. Love what we’re doing? Tell a friend or recommend this Medium post by adding some claps!
