Episode length and limits

If you’re capturing your audio with Anchor (web or mobile), please note, there are different recording times. If you’d like to record for longer than those limits, no problem! You can record multiple segments that will automatically be stored in your library folder.

Some other things you should know:

  • Episodes - No time limit. Add as many segments as you want! Although we always recommend not having episodes over an hour or so.
  • Solo recording - Web recording on Chrome: 30 minutes max. Web recording on Safari: 5 minutes max. Mobile app recording limit: 2 hours.
  • Recording with friends - 2 hour max limit of recording time! Just note that the longer your recording is, the more likely connection issues could occur and interrupt the recording. Try recording with your friends in shorter bursts of 15 minutes or so.
  • Voice messages - Can be up to 1 minute long, but you can have entire conversations via messages and then add them all to your podcast at once.
