Spotify Brings Live Audio And Podcast To The Main App For Users

Spotify has announced that it is changing the name of Greenroom to Spotify Live and bringing its live capabilities directly onto the Spotify app.

Spotify Live can now be found both as the stand-alone app listeners and hosts know and love, and as a livestream function in the Spotify app alongside your favourite music and podcasts.

“This change reflects our belief in the future of live-audio creators and live experiences being provided to all 406 million Spotify listeners around the globe,” the company said in a blogpost.

Greenroom was introduced as a competition to Clubhouse and Twitter Spaces, but unlike those two platforms, people were required to download the Greenroom app separately.

Listeners will be able to tune in to live programming on Spotify via the creator’s podcast or artist page, and if they want to participate in the chat or join the host onstage, they can head to the Spotify Live app to do so.
