Facebook New Feature: Facebook has launched its Live Audio service. The social media company is also starting a podcast facility with a live audio room. However, this service will currently be available only to users in the US and users who have an iOS device there. With this, Facebook is allowing only a few well-known people and select Facebook groups to create live audio rooms. This will give competition to Clubhouse.
The company said that select podcasts will be available to listeners in the US. In the coming weeks, they will allow more people and groups to host live audio rooms.
Up to 50 users will be able to join the live audio session
Those hosting the live audio room will also have the option to support them by choosing a non-profit or fundraiser during their conversation. And Facebook said that listeners and speakers will be able to donate directly. Facebook is allowing up to 50 speakers to be added to a live audio session. There is no limit on the number of listeners, so anyone can join the live audio room on Facebook.
Facebook said celebrities will be able to invite friends, followers, verified public figures or any other audience to be the speaker in the room. The host can invite speakers before or during the conversation. One can discover live audio rooms through places such as the news feed or through notifications.
