Listen Up!  New “Listening” automatic status

Statuses (Available, Away, Busy) have been available for over a week now, serving as a convenient way to convey your status to your users or fellow chatters.

Today, we’re improving them by adding our first automatic status: Listening.

Listening will automatically apply when users are tuned in to the chatroom radio image, assuming your chatroom is on a paid tier & assuming the user is not already Away or Busy. The headphones icon will only appear if the user in question does not have a custom rank shape set.

You can use this to identify listeners, or encourage others to tune in if they haven’t yet. This should incentivize users to listen as much as possible.
