ZoooG is a startup in Tokyo that created a voice-based app that is the beginning of a voice-sharing social network. 'Voice' allows users to share audio clips, gain followers and follow others in a similar way to Twitter. Also borrowing from Snapchat, the voice clips will disappear after 24 hours. However, if users want to save others' or their own clips, then they are invited to upgrade to a paid account.

In China and Taiwan, it's popular for people to post audio clips of their voice fairly regularly onto different social media sites or apps. ZoooG will be using China's video uploading site 'Bilibili' as an advertising base. Another popular voice-based app was born in Singapore called 'Bubbly,' however it didn't reach the global market since it became a platform to post solely Indian song parodies.
