According to the sources, Facebook plans to release a series of ‘Social Audio’ products similar to the Clubhouse.
An internal source indicates this release may include a product similar to the Clubhouse Voice social platform. And the giant will also develop another product with Spotify. He also plans to develop a tool for detecting and distributing podcasts. However, not all products will be available soon.
Upcoming Facebook Products:
- At the beginning of the pandemic, there was an urgent need for video conferencing platforms. Facebook launched a video conferencing product called Rooms a year ago. However, now the company plans to release a pure voice version of Rooms.
- Facebook is also preparing to launch a product similar to Clubhouse. This product will allow people to join different groups and interact with speakers on a virtual stage.
- Facebook users can now post text, graphics and video messages on Newsfeed. The company is also preparing to launch a similar voice message feature.
- Spotify has been investing heavily in podcasting over the past few years. Facebook will release a product to detect podcasts, which this time connects to the service. It is unclear whether Facebook has any plans other than tagging podcast content and giving users access to Spotify.
According to reports, these products may not be available until the end of spring this year. Even the beta will not be open until then.
The CEO Of Facebook Has Always Loved The Activities Of The Clubhouse:
In any case, these new product plans show that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg firmly believes that its users are ready to use video and voice as an essential way to communicate with each other. He’s not the only CEO of the tech giant to be optimistic lately: Twitter is ready to release Spaces, a product similar to Clubhouse. Apple may also launch a new podcast subscription product no earlier than Tuesday when the latest product launches.
Zuckerberg has clearly expressed interest in the Clubhouse. This voice social service was launched at the beginning of the pandemic and snowballed last year. He used this service many times and once appeared with Spotify CEO Daniel Eck. At the same time, Clubhouse’s rating has also been multiplying recently. A few months ago, after completing $ 1 billion in funding, it announced a new round of financing with an estimated $ 4 billion.
