Facebook Talks Up Live Audio
Facebook today launched Live Audio, a way for people to share a live audio feed with followers. Facebook imagines the tool will be used by content creators to share interviews, read books, or broadcast podcasts. Facebook says people will be able to discover live audio within their News Feed, and can interact with live audio via questions and reactions. Android devices will fully support multitasking, meaning users will be able to listen to live audio when using other apps or even when their device is locked. iOS users will need to be content with listening while exploring other parts of the Facebook app. Facebook intends to test Live Audio with several partners (BBC Brasil, LBC, Harper Collins, and others) over the next few weeks with a broader rollout planned for early next year.
