Facebook has the attention of our eyes, now it’s coming for our ears.
In a recent announcement, the social media platform stated that they are launching a few new audio products like, “Live Audio Rooms”, “Soundbites”, and adding podcast abilities.
Mark Zuckerberg stated that the company wants to “treat audio as a first-class medium in the way that we treat photos and videos”.
