Facebook announces Live Audio feature for iOS and Android


Facebook has announced that it is introducing a Live Audio feature that allows live broadcasts of audio-only content. The company will be testing the feature with a small number of established broadcasters including the BBC World Service and LBC. iOS users will get a worse version of the service than using Android devices: while Android users can continue listening to a Live Audio broadcast while using other apps, iOS users will need to remain within the app. You can, though, browse other Facebook content while listening. If you fancy yourself as a live radio host or live podcaster, the company says that it will be making the feature more available to publishers and people early in the new year.

What are they doing, coding for iOS 3? iOS has had the ability to allow background streaming since iOS 4. This makes me wonder if Facebook is about to launch a device of their own, powered by Android. This is a one hundred percent artificial limitation and could only be for marketing or political purposes. It makes me glad I deleted my Facebook account a year or so back.
