Swedish audio streaming service Spotify has been promoting podcasts on its app, which began with the acquisition of the podcast creation platform, Anchor in 2019.

Now, Anchor has updated its dedicated app on iPhone with a new feature that will drastically enhance your podcast’s audio with just one click – ‘Podcast Audio Enhancement’ which will reduce background noise and level your audio.

A single button will activate this feature in the app. Eliminating the background noise will bring the users’ voices to the forefront.

Anchor is an entirely free app that lets you upload unlimited podcasts.

“Audio Enhancement in Anchor is your most valuable audio editing tool. A single tap can automatically reduce background noise while leveling your voice and bringing it to the forefront. The result would be better-sounding audio, even if it were recorded in a loud coffee shop, on the subway, or with babies crying in the background. And that means it’s easier for more people to record podcasts without waiting for a quiet, distraction-free setting—or setting up a home studio. With Audio Enhancement, the world is your studio,” Anchor said in a blog post.

To simply record and enhance the audio, users can use the Anchor mobile app by tapping on ‘Enhance’ on the ‘Preview your audio’ page. By doing so, users will get a clear recording in a noisy environment. Besides, the toggle can be turned on and off during the playback, which will help podcasters compare the results.
