The makers of Anthem are working to make their podcasting service a lot more user-friendly and less boring.
The first step in that effort is a new app for iOS and Android called Anthem Producer Toolbox.
That app lets you search through your social feeds and highlight interesting content from the last few days.
It also lets you filter by keywords and tags.
“We are very focused on the first step, the discovery and discovery of new things,” Anthem CEO Brian DeLuca said in an interview.
“So the feature that we are working on is really going to be designed to be a really helpful discovery tool.
We want to really make it really easy for people to find what they want.”
The feature was built using machine learning and deep learning to understand what you’re interested in.
That means that you can easily find and select relevant content and then quickly highlight it for quick sharing.
It’s not just Anthem producers who will benefit from this.
A bunch of other podcasts are also using it.
So are a handful of other major networks including CNN and MSNBC.
The goal is to make it as easy as possible for listeners to find interesting content.
DeLucas says that, in order to make the feature truly useful, it will be more like Spotify.
Anthem producer tools will be available as soon as they’re ready for a general release, and the company says that it plans to roll out more features over time.
“The biggest challenge for us is getting it out there,” DeLucia said.
“The other challenge is that there is a ton of noise and a lot of misinformation.
So, it’s going to take a while for us to get this out there.”
It is worth noting that Anthem is also working on a podcasting app for the web, which should be ready soon.
But DeLucae said that he wants to make sure that the podcasting experience on Anthem doesn’t get any worse.
“It’s very much going to have a podcast-like experience, but it’s not going to become a podcast with a bunch of audio,” he said.
