Facebook is joining the very crowded audio space with live rooms, and podcasts.

Facebook says it wants to "treat audio as a first-class medium in the way that photos and videos are treated."

The social media company is working on its own live audio product, called Live Audio Rooms, to be tested in Facebook Groups before the feature will be released to everyone this summer. Also, podcasts are coming to the Facebook app, along with another new product called "Soundbites," which are basically short form audio clips, much like TikTok videos but with captions.
