Social media company Facebook is planning to launch its own Podcast Platform. Facebook reveals that this feature will be rolling out from June 22 onwards.
The company announced the upcoming feature back in April when it said that users would soon be able to listen to podcasts directly within the Facebook app.
The feature will enable listeners to create clips from their favorite shows. Facebook releases its podcast terms and conditions that can be view by anyone.
The social media giant will allow podcast hosts to link their RSS feeds to Facebook, and the social media platform will automatically generate news feed posts for new podcast episodes.
The episodes will be viewed under a new podcast tab on the Facebook page. Followers of the page will also automatically be sent a notification every time there’s a new episode published.
The social media platform will also let the users decide whether they wish to enable clips. These clips, up to a minute in length. Users can create the clips and share them with the listeners to “help increase visibility and engagement”.
Facebook confirmed with The Verge earlier this month that its
Podcast platform will allow only a limited number of page owners to access it. However, the social media giant is still sending out emails to more page owners, suggesting a wider rollout than expected.
Twitch is already providing the same feature to its users. Perhaps, Facebook is making this move to compete with Spotify in the podcast segment.
In April, Facebook had also announced Soundbites, which will enable users to create short, shareable audio clips in the News Feed on the platform.
