Hi, we’re Beams.

We’re a social micro podcasting app that allows you to collaborate with others using your voice.

We call these micro podcasts beams.

We like to think of Beams as one big sonic scrapbook — made up of voices from groups of people all over the world. Beams is ultimately a space to bring people closer together, through shared voices.

Start a beam on any subject, and add people to share off-the-cuff voice recordings from anywhere in the world. From ideas on our future to sharing experiences of what it means to be human today, Beams evolve and grow with your group as the conversation flows.

Starting a beam is simple. Create a title, record your voice and release into the wild. Then, invite others to collaborate by adding their voices and responding to each other. Join a beam, get updates and it will grow and evolve over time as voices are added.

Finally a social app that I feel like I can actually grow from

This app is awesome! This is not about likes or followers but about the topic, which I really like. Other platforms have started to feel like an ego death match where it’s all about numbers but here it’s all about stories.
Super intuitive to use and exciting to get in on the ground floor of something with a big future!

Needs more diversity and inclusion.

So far the majority of users seem to be straight and white. Yes, there are a few, very few, people of color but not even close to representing the true diversity of our global family. I don’t see or hear any LGBTQX voices or beams at all. Hopefully the marketing team can bring more voices of varying background and opinions into the fold. Until I see that’s happened I can’t give a rating of higher than 3 stars. Cool idea but botched execution so far. Also minus 1 star for being a near exact copy of the app Riffr. Hopefully they can settle this in the inevitable court caset.

Stories > content

Finally a space for stories, not flash in the pan content, that I can and will remember from the people I care about. The world needs this
