A new sound-based social network called Voice has just launched in Japan.
Voice, which is available on iOS and Android app, allows users to record and post clips of their own voice, follow other users and have followers of their own.
Posts are only available for 24 hours, although users can save recordings beyond this time limit if they upgrade to a paid account.
Voice has said that it wants to get 20,000 users in Japan in the near future, as well as around 10,000 each in China and Taiwan. In the longer-term, it also hopes to expand to South East Asian countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia.
Voice’s founder has said that he believes the demand for a voice-based social network “is big” and that he hopes to fill this niche in the market.
