Spotify will reportedly integrate live audio into its main app

In addition to music and podcasts, Spotify may soon offer live audio within its primary streaming app. According to Bloomberg, the company plans to integrate Greenroom into its mainline app. In the process, Spotify will reportedly also rename the platform to Spotify Live. All of this could happen before the second half of the year, according to Bloomberg

The outlet was tipped off on the impending move by iOS developer Steve Moser, who found evidence of it in the beta version of Spotify’s iPhone app. As for the ultimate fate of Greenroom, in a separate tweet, Bloomberg reporter Ashley Carman said the app would live on as a kind of backend for creators to record and upload their content to Spotify.   

We’ve reached out to Spotify for comment.

Speaking to Spotify’s potential motivations behind the plan, Bloomberg suggests Greenroom has “struggled to take off.” By integrating live audio into its very popular streaming app, the company would be elevating the format to a place where it would be more accessible – even if some users would complain about the app becoming even more crowded. 

In a way, it’s strange the company may only now be considering integrating the two together. When Spotify first announced its plans for Greenroom, CEO Daniel Ek said he saw live audio as something that every platform would eventually feature. "Just like Stories with video where every major platform has them as one way for its audience to communicate with each other, I see live audio similarly," he said at the time. "I expect all the platforms to have it."

The Tarot Reader and Activist Who Created DC Comics’ First Transgender Superhero

Created in the 1960s by DC Comics, Doom Patrol is an eccentric superhero team comprised of complex characters like Danny the Street, a sentient neighborhood that identifies as genderqueer. It’s fitting then, that this team would also boast DC Comics’ first transgender superhero, Kate Godwin, written by their first out trans writer: Rachel Pollack. Hailing from Brooklyn, Pollack led a stereotypical straight cisgender male life …

As members of the fashion press were ushered into the atrium of the Victoria and Albert museum, Kojey Radical stared upwards at an eight-foot portrait of Charles Coote, the 1st Earl of Bellamont. One of them was wearing a lime green Crêpe de Chine blouse and a rhinestone-monogrammed suit from Gucci, while the other had been styled in a salmon-pink cape and an ostrich-feathered headpiece.hellip;

5 Pairs of Matching adidas Shoes for You & Your Little One

matching adidas shoes

Why is it that small things that look exactly like big things are so cute? Never is this more apparent than with sneakers. Kicks that look like they’ve been shrunken down in perfect proportions will never not make us happy. Going one step further, the idea that you can actually still cop the original-size pair and team up with your mini-me is the ultimate level of cute harmony.

More and more we’re seeing brands putting the same technology that’s used on adult sizes into their kids’ offering too. Take adidas as a prime example. Even shoes like the Ultraboost 22 which carry the latest in running tech are available for little ones. This is something we never would have seen a decade ago.

Below, we’ve rounded up 5 pairs of adidas shoes for kids and yourself. Whether you’re styling up for a day running errands or taking your young one out for a shootaround to teach them what being an underdog feels like, there’s a pair of adidas kicks for you both to lace up.

It’s also worth remembering that joining adiClub will earn you a helpful 15 percent and free shipping on most items. For those who were already members of the Creator’s Club, don’t worry — adiClub is the same thing with the same rewards. It’s just got a different name now.

The adidas Utltraboost is arguably one of the Three Stripes’ most popular offerings today. With a closer focus on performance with its raised heel to house more Boost spheres, the Ultraboost 22 is great for exercise, but also one of the comfiest iterations for you & your little one.

If you’ve been hitting the court with people your own size and feeling that you can’t quite get your shot away in time or that your euro step doesn’t reach far enough, try playing against your kid. It’ll be a confidence boost, we promise. Plus, to make it worth their while, you can be sure to cop them a pair of Harden’s latest signature shoe.

The Forum has been a big fixture in our rotations over the last year. Hype around the silhouette built thanks to a handful of collaborations and a shift in interest towards retro-style silhouettes. Let your little one get in on the hype, too.

In the arena of iconic footwear, the adidas Stan Smith ranks near the top of the scale. Raising your child with great taste should be a conscious decision and it can all start with their first pair of Stan Smiths. This Miss Piggy & Kermit iteration offers a sense of playfulness that they’ll love, too.

Much like the Stan Smith, copping a pair of matching Superstars for you & your kid will be a big moment for them. It’s the type of legendary silhouette that you always remember your first pair of.
