As you might expect from the makers of Spotify, this is a solid audio streaming app, but there's definitely mature content easily available. It's simple to find rooms related to your interests, and Spotify Greenroom automatically recommends more. It also plays seamlessly in the background on your device. For content creators, it's an appealing tool: Rooms are recorded, so room hosts could save their recording and later publish it as a podcast. This recording feature also might be the app's most promising privacy feature. Having a recording of a conversation or chat transcript may help the developers enforce their rules banning abusive language and inappropriate content.

Like other social media apps, this might be a good fit for older, more mature teens. There's great potential for connecting with people who share your interests. It's appealingly earnest to drop in on rooms where people are listening to music together or talking knowledgeably about sports they love. You also might learn something, from entrepreneurs offering startup advice to DJs hosting rooms featuring new music. Meanwhile, there are also rooms featuring advice on betting on sports, investing in cryptocurrency, and sex, so your mileage may vary drastically when it comes to informative content. Overall, there's great potential for connection here, but the same pitfalls of other social media — like offensive content, abusive language, or plain old bad advice — are likely just a click away. If you're looking for a way to use voice chat to connect with other people, especially to talk about sports, Spotify Greenroom is worth a (cautious) look.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
