Rolltape adds Radio feature so you can share voice messages with the world

Rolltape is a voice messaging app that’s alleged to make it easier to share private, emotional moments with associates. Now, with the launch of Rolltape Radio, it might enable you to share these tales on a broader scale.

The change is fairly simple. Beforehand, Rolltape messages (that are beneficial to be 5 minutes or much less, however haven’t any onerous restrict) might solely be shared with buddies, both individually or a number of directly. Now, these messages may be shared publicly — inside the Rolltape iOS app, on the Rolltape Radio website and anyplace else on the internet by way of hyperlinks.

Co-founder and CEO Jessica Taylor advised me that including public broadcasts was all the time a part of the plan, one thing she hinted at when we talked final yr.

“What we acknowledged was that we have now plenty of artistic customers on the platform,” she stated. “We’ve positioned Rolltape firstly as a messaging app — that is simply going to permit them to scale their communications.”

So Taylor sees Rolltape as a spot the place individuals can nonetheless share these sorts of private tales. And on the opposite aspect of the spectrum, she additionally stated that Rolltape Radio might turn out to be a “do-it-your self podcasting platform.”

“You don’t want to purchase a microphone, you don’t want to purchase any audio modifying software program,” she stated. “Simply do a 5-minute podcast and experiment.”

Taylor recommended that bloggers, comedians might additionally use Rolltape Radio to advertise their work.
