    "Facebook announced Tuesday a new option called Live Audio that will let publishers more easily go live with audio only on the network. Similar to the live video experience on Facebook, users can comment and leave reactions.

    Facebook users could also listen passively. "We know that people often like to listen to audio while doing other things and think the listening experience will be first class," Facebook product specialist Shirley Ip and software engineer Bhavana Radhakrishnan wrote in a blog post detailing the announcement.

    Could Facebook be the next podcasting platform, competing with the likes of Acast, Spotify and iTunes? "

    I think it was deployed on limited basis for testing.
