Anchor is an online podcast creation tool owned by Spotify. It is a popular choice amongst folks looking to test the water with podcasting. It offers free podcast recording, editing, hosting, distribution, and monetization tools to users. It provides creators with unlimited free hosting services and includes an option to move their podcasting service from other service providers for free. Here you can publish podcast episodes straight from Anchor to all major podcast platforms, and monitor your podcast’s engagement using built-in data and insights. However, Anchor doesn’t come with video recording, and its audio recording is compressed and depends on the internet connection—so the audio quality is not the highest.
Anchor is a good choice for hobby podcasters who want an all-in-one tool, but businesses trying to launch a podcast for their brands may struggle with its limited capabilities.
