Facebook also announced its own audio chat product Live Audio Rooms. But the company claims that audio service has long been in the plans. “Audio has been on our mind for a long time,” Facebook application chief Fidji Simo told CNBC International.
He explained that the technology in the product has also been developed by Facebook for many years. Namely Artificial Intelligence which will make a sound like being on the edge of a monitor or near a river, even replacing it like an alien.
