Facebook introduces host of new audio features to take on Clubhouse, Twitter

To start with, Facebook will allow users to host live chat rooms on Facebook Groups and Messenger, which is the central idea behind Clubhouse

Social media giant, Facebook, is going big on audio features. The company introduced a host of new audio-only functions that will be coming to the central Facebook app in the coming months. While the features will be split across Facebook initially, the company said it will create a central space for audio content to be hosted on the platform. The company is also adding monetization features from the get-go, giving it a leg up on competitors Clubhouse and Twitter, which have been dabbling in the social audio space for a while now.

“We’re working to make audio messages easier to record, and more fun — including the ability for people to send familiar sound clips to their friends that range from sound effects like crickets chirping to quotes from popular songs," the company said in a blog post. The features include out and out copies of Clubhouse or Twitter’s Spaces, others are new features that are unique to Facebook.
