In the session they also teased new game features including a new type of post, coming soon, called “Looking for Players.” This post will help the creators find other players in that gaming community to play game while live streaming. In addition to this, Zuckerberg said that the badged earned for live streaming will be taken to a fan group as it was highly demanded by fans and creators.
Live Audio Room is going to rival with Clubhouse and Spaces as it will also provide the users with the same type of experience that they are expecting. The user interface of the Live Audio Room includes a speaker stage that is followed by a section that shows listeners followed by the speakers and another section that shows the remaining listeners.
