Heralded as a long-overdue addition to text, photo and video-based conversation experiences, audio-chat apps such as Twitter Spaces, Discord and Clubhouse are suddenly everywhere. These platforms allow us to curate communities, discuss important issues and generate meaningful change. In many ways, these audio-only apps have been one of the biggest tech developments to come out of the pandemic. From thought-provoking discussions that illuminate niche subjects to buzzing gossip gatherings, tuning into audio-only chat apps allows us to connect with likeminded people from across the globe, as well as people who have a different perspective to our own. People are becoming more and more interested in consuming raw, unedited content and exchanging ideas in real time, and audio-chat apps cater to this and more.
