Audius Launches In-App Direct Messaging

Audius, the largest decentralized music community and discovery platform for artists and their fans, launched a direct messaging feature that enables users to connect directly with each other and their favorite artists via text and emoji reactions. Additionally for artists, Audius’ technology allows them to gate direct messaging access, giving them the option of connecting only with superfans who have tipped them. This new messaging tool enables deeper relationships between artists & their fans, and enriches the Audius experience for everyone on the platform. 

“Audius is all about forging deeper connections between artists & their fans, so giving our users the ability to chat with each other on platform is a hugely important step in our mission,” said Forrest Browning, Audius Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer. “And with direct messaging paired with tipping features, it’s possible for fans to support their favorite artists in a very real way.”
