What is VOIZD?
Voizd is an Audio anonymous social space where you can freely express every opinion and thought in your own voice without the fear of ever been recognized, judged or labeled. As you know it has become extremely difficult today for young people especially to have an opinion which goes against the mainstream , there are a million thoughts we want to express every day, but stop ourselves thinking “ Log kya Kahenege”.
Well, Voizd is an attempt to solve this problem. Voizd lets you share your thoughts with the world in quick 30 sec voice clips and other can listen to them and connect with you. Also, they choose Voice as a medium of communication because they strongly believe that everyone should have equal right to express themselves even if they are not comfortable writing and posting in English which has become a defacto language of internet leaving billions of people who are not comfortable with language on the sidelines.
Voice your opinions & thoughts
I’ve lost my baby,” Dragonrose finally finds the courage to speak to herself. MedusaMagic opens up about her female desire and the ensuing moral dilemma. OverThinkingDesi speaks from a place where he is still a terrified boy when he confesses to being abused by his stepmother.
The voices of these people are morphed, but the conversation around pain and a sense of shame couldn’t have been clearer. Members of a burgeoning new virtual community called VOIZD, they are one of the many who’re finding solace, support, and the strength to share their stories and beliefs without worrying about being judged or trolled.
Started by Sameer Agarwal and co-founded by Pooja Daswani, VOIZD is a mobile app that allows people to record 30-second audio clips on any topic under the sun. Whether it’s speaking up on national and international issues or giving vent to personal or professional frustrations, its users are feeling empowered to express themselves in their own unique ways.
Here Crime Master Gogo is taking a dig at Mumbai’s pot holed roads with his satirical one-liner and Psychlone is brewing up a hurricane with his musings on religious teachings. Says Agarwal, “It’s ironic that masquerading under the aliases the app gives them, they can be their real selves in a largely intolerant society.”
Ask him what made him create VOIZD and he recounts threats that came his way after voicing strong opinions on major social media platforms. “The virtual world has become a stage where one is under constant pressure to play to the gallery. VOIZD is an attempt to build a network where people can be true to themselves. This is also the reason why our app is all about oral communication. Often a pause, a change in tone, a sigh can say all that’s unsaid.”
