Whether you’re after breaking news, reactions to today’s trending topics, pop culture trivia or just some good tunes, there’s something for everyone on Amp.
Home is where your favorite shows live. You’ll be served live and upcoming shows based on your pre-selected interests and (soon) the accounts you follow, too. There are always lots of new shows to discover.
Discover Live Shows
Amp is a live service and shows are most easily discovered when live. Swipe left, swipe right, and tap on shows that pique your interest. You can listen to a show and continue browsing, too. Just tap the arrow to collapse the playback screen, then start swiping again. If you select a new show, you’ll automatically leave the show you’ve been listening to. Tap the Amp logo anytime to refresh the list.
Note: We’re hard at it working on discovery features like search and profile linking. You can stay updated on our progress by subscribing to the Amp Newsletter. In the meantime, you can find creators who aren’t live (or who haven’t scheduled a show) by dropping into shows you like, tapping the host’s profile, then following the users who they follow/are following them. Don’t forget to allow notifications. If you’re a creator looking for tips on how to promote your show, click here.
Discover Upcoming Shows
When swiping through your recommendations, you’ll see shows with “upcoming” banners. You can opt-in to be notified when the show goes live by tapping the bell icon. If you have notifications turned off, you’ll need to update your permissions in your phone’s settings.

Following & Liking
When listening to a show, you can like the individual show by clicking the heart icon. To find out more about the host or the callers, tap on their handles and you’ll be taken to their profiles. From here you can follow them, and opt in (or out) of being notified any time they go live.
Leave a Show
It’s a two-step process. Tapping the minimize arrow will take you to your home screen, where you can find and join a new show while continuing to listen to your current show —it’ll be collapsed to a bar bottom of screen. You can end listening completely by tapping the “x”. Or you can stop the show at anytime, then when you resume you’ll join back in live.
Pro tip: Make sure phone and headphone volume is turned on and up, and “do not disturb” is activated.
