A competitor to Clubhouse from Facebook might be Messenger Rooms

The New York Times reported in February that Facebook was in the process of establishing a competitive relationship with the Clubhouse. However, there are unanswered questions about what the product looks like or how it works.

However, the new screenshots of the Facebook audio product under development show the live streaming experience which is an extension of Facebook Messenger Messenger and not a standalone app experience.

Facebook confirmed that these images are examples of the company's language exploration efforts, but cautioned that these images are not an easy product yet.

The company also said, since these features are under development, product appearance details based on these images may be inaccurate and totally different from real-time products.

These images show how Facebook sees audio in real time and where this social experience could fit into the existing Facebook app.

Facebook's messaging rooms feature may provide club-style live broadcasts in the future.

The images were shared by mobile developer Alessandro Balozzi, who did real-time audio development via Facebook and tried the UI in the Facebook Android app code.

A company spokesperson commented on the images: "For many years we have been connecting people through audio and video technology and looking for new ways to improve the people's experience."

With the current beta version of Messenger Rooms, users can select the type of room they want in Zoom, which was first implemented by Facebook competitors in May.

One option provides a private audio room for use with friends and the ultimate private video room, while the last option called "Real Time Audio" allows users to start audio broadcasts for full rooms only. the listener.

Carriers can accommodate up to 50 people but do not provide a casting experience.

Currently, the Facebook version has a similar interface to Clubhouse. Speakers appear at the top of the list of users and listeners, which appears below the speakers.

“Anyone on Facebook can join the show without opening the messaging room,” Palozzi said.
