The Audio tab lives in your home feed and is where you can find all of your creators' audio posts.

You can use the filter menu at the top right corner to toggle between different play states. 

If you want to download, archive, or share an audio file, click on it from the Audio tab. After clicking on the audio file, you can access the Audio post menu(three dots) at the page's top right corner. This will bring out a drop-down menu with different actions to choose from.

  • Swiping right on a file reveals the download action (IOS)
  • Swiping right on a downloaded file reveals the remove from download action (IOS)
  • Swiping left on a file reveals the archive action (IOS)
