(Pocket-lint) – In early 2021, Facebook announced a slew of new audio features. Now it is launching a dedicated hub for them, so that you can easily find podcasts, live audio, and shortcut clips on the platform. The social network essentially brings together all of its audio formats in a new “Audio” tab.
Where is the Facebook audio hub located?
The new Facebook audio hub can be found in the Facebook app for iOS and Android devices. This is a tab located in the Facebook Watch section.
- Open the latest version of the Facebook mobile app.
- From the bottom navigation bar, select Watch.
- This is the “TV with a play button” icon.
- You’ll notice various tabs at the top of Facebook Watch:
- For you
- Select Sound.
This new hub will help Facebook users find audio content from their favorite creators, discover new content, and access content they’ve saved for later. At launch, the Audio section will highlight content from creators you already follow along with personalized recommendations and suggestions.
Who can access the Facebook audio hub?
It is deployed to all Facebook mobile users in the United States.

Why does Facebook care about audio?
The Clubhouse mobile app became a huge hit at the start of the year, forcing Facebook and others to enter the live audio market to compete. Twitter, for example, has developed a Spaces feature, while Facebook has developed several new audio features, which are slowly rolling out. As reported by TechCrunch, Facebook has started making its Clubhouse rival, Live Audio Rooms, “more widely available to global users.” It is also starting to deploy Soundbites.
What audio features is Facebook developing?
The social network works on three main products: Soundbits, Podcasts and Live Audio Rooms.
- Sound extracts: Short audio clips – or “an audio version” of Reels, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
- Podcasts: Facebook creates a podcast discovery tool.
- Live audio rooms: host audio chats and even record and distribute your conversations.
