Facebook unveils big audio push, adding podcasts

SAN FRANCISCO: Facebook on Monday said it is adding podcasts and “live audio rooms” in a push to get people talking and take on the fast-growing audio-based app Clubhouse.
“We think a lot of magic happens at the intersection of audio formats, as well as at the confluence of text, audio and video,” Facebook app chief Fidji Simo said in a blog post.
Facebook’s plan to weave audio offerings into the social network comes as it works to prevent losing users to audio-only startup Clubhouse.
