The billionaire worked on the project after selling a stake in MagicLab to the American fund Blackstone. Stereo was developed by a team of former Badoo UK employees and Silicon Valley specialists.

Stereo is similar in capabilities to Clubhouse, it has live broadcasts. But, unlike the popular voice network, conversation recordings are also available. Users have the opportunity to receive donations from listeners for them.

Andreev estimates Stereo as “a project that can grow several times larger than the previous business.”

“Audio space is, perhaps, the only market where today no one has tried anything, where there is no competition and absolutely unlimited scale. I understood that in this market I was not going to compete with someone, and to move someone from their already familiar positions, ”the publication quotes Andreev.

It clarifies that content creators will be able to monetize in the form of paid streams or donations. In the next couple of months, Stereo will begin to deduct a commission as an infrastructure fee it provides content creators to make money.

About 50 thousand people around the world become users of the service every day, Andreev specified. In Russia, the Stereo app is available on iOS and Android.
