Tips and advice
- For the best audio quality when using Record with Friends, it’s a good idea to make sure that you and all of your guests are in a quiet space to avoid any additional background noise.
- Enable `Do Not Disturb` to avoid phone calls and notifications from interrupting your recording
- Ensure that each guest has a stable connection, if possible
- To outline your episode and keep the recording structured, you can use a note taking app!
- Close other apps in use before starting a call for a more reliable recording
Trouble connecting to a call
Ensure you have a stable connection
Be sure you (and your guests!) are connected to reliable Wi-Fi or LTE when using these features to ensure the best quality for your recording.
Receiving a call
If one of your guests invited through your “Anchor friends” list isn't receiving a notification to join the recording, ask them to go to navigate to the 'Profile' tab in the app, go to their 'Activity' and tap the notification there to connect.
Do you have the latest version of Anchor?
Try reinstalling the app from your device to reset any incorrect or false data that could be causing connection issues
