Facebook launches an experimental forum to keep up with voice chat


The experimental forum is an attempt by the platform to keep pace with developments made by applications such as “Clubhouse” in conjunction with the spread of the new Corona virus.

The social media giants are scrambling to prevent users from being attracted to applications provided by competitors who use voice-only technology over the Internet, one of the most famous of these applications is Clubhouse.

Hotline provides users with a mixture of audio, text and video options to participate in online discussions with the hosts, and it is also possible to ask questions in writing – which is not possible at Clubhouse – as well as to choose who speaks through the forum.

“We hope to understand how interactive questions and answers and multimedia help people learn from experts in areas such as professional skills, just as these experts help build their businesses,” a Facebook spokeswoman said.
