Facebook announced the launch of the audio room and podcast features for users in the United States, in the first steps in its plan to support the platform with various audio services.
The eighth bulletin, “Nasturtium” (21/6/221), continued what the company said, in a statement, via its blog today, that it is in the process of launching live audio rooms and podcasts, as part of its plans to bring social audio experiences to Facebook.
She added that some public figures, and specific Facebook groups within the United States, can create live audio rooms, and some podcasts will be available to users in the coming days.
Among the interactions with the Facebook ad, activist Jehan Miller said, “More competitors to Club House, most recently Facebook’s testing of podcast rooms in the United States and the launch of Spotify, a new application for live discussions across groups.”
For his part, tweeter Kartik Basin said in a tweet, “I most likely will impose a price for using the features in the future, and with no real data protection laws, it is possible that your personal data is the real treasure here.”
While activist Mark Philippe said, commenting on Facebook’s problems with controlling content, “Rooms full of racists, conspiracy theorists and hate. No thanks.”
