Facebook launching real-time conversation audio feature

LONDON: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Monday announced that the company is building audio features where users can engage in real-time conversations with others.
Facebook announced said it will roll out a series of audio features in the next few months, BBC reported.
This includes Live Audio Rooms, its version of the popular app Clubhouse that allows people to listen and participate in live conversations.
Facebook will also launch a new feature, Soundbites, where users can create and share short audio clips.
The feature will be launched over the next few months, at first with a small number of creators.
Users will be able to make money in the Live Audio Rooms or with Soundbites, though it’s unclear if this will be available to anyone or just reserved for creators with large followings.
