Live Audio, a new audio only streaming tool has been announced on the FB blog. Only a select group of users currently have access, but early next year they plan to make this new format more broadly available to publishers and people. Will Facebook Live Audio Work?
Android users can continue listening to a Live Audio broadcast while using other apps, iOS users will need to remain within the app. You can, though, browse other Facebook content while listening.
Why this feature could succeed:
- Easier preparation before broadcasting.
- No worry about make-up or appearance.
- Works with lower bandwidth
I will be testing this and updating this post when this is available
