Facebook starts testing its Clubhouse-rival Live Audio Rooms

Facebook has begun testing its Clubhouse-rival Live Audio Rooms feature with public figures and content creators in Taiwan, as reported by Bloomberg.

Last month, the social media giant introduced the new product as well as other audio tools including Soundbites, Podcasts and an in-app sound studio. 

The audio-chat feature is now available for public figures and creators in Taiwan where they constantly hold conversations about significant issues. The company will also bring its Live Audio Rooms to Facebook Groups and launch Stars which will allow users to support their favorite creators with donations. 

Launched in April 2020, Clubhouse has managed to become one of the most prominent names in the mobile ecosystem.  The app was available for only iPhone users until last week when it started beta testing its Android app. Yesterday, the company launched its app on the Play Store, however, only for users in the United States for now. 

Along with Facebook, global tech giants including Twitter, Reddit, LinkedIn, Telegram, Discord, ByteDance and Spotify have also rolled out / announced their Clubhouse-like products.
