Facebook Live Audio Rooms is yet another Clubhouse clone

Facebook has launched Facebook Live Audio Rooms, a product that lets users broadcast group conversations in real time. In other words, yet another Clubhouse clone.

The new Facebook product is rolling out in the US initially. This comes as part of the company’s big push for audio, with a brand-new Podcasts experience to Facebook Page. Sharing on the official Facebook blog, Head of Facebook App, Fidji Simo said this:

“We believe that audio is a perfect way for communities to engage around topics they care about.”

Facebook Live Audio Rooms is going to be tested in Groups, which should reach less than 2 billion users and should be available to any verified public figure/creator in the US.

Here’s what the experience looks like:

There isn’t really a lot to talk about the new product feature-wise because it works exactly like Clubhouse or Twitter Spaces. Of course, the key difference is it presumably integrates with Facebook’s host of other products.
