Mark Zuckerberg does not intend to leave the Clubhouse compete alone. O Facebook is testing the Hotline, a new application similar to the audio platform that boomed in early 2021.

While the Clubhouse is restricted to audio, Zuckerberg’s novelty allows people to use audio and video to chat with the audience when creating chat rooms, as in Instagram Live. Conversations can be scheduled and all have a feature for questions and answers (Q&A).

It is also possible to record video and audio, another feature that is not in the Clubhouse, which are then available as two files in mp3 and mp4 to be downloaded. For now, there is no limit to the size of the audience in each room.

Still in beta and without a version for mobile devices, the Hotline can be accessed through its website (not yet available in Brazil). To create an account, you need to log in using your Twitter, not Facebook, and leave your name on a waiting list.

The project is being led by Erik Hazzard, who started working for Facebook in 2017 after selling his “tbh” application to the technology giant. The first live broadcast on the Hotline was tested last Wednesday (07) with real estate investor Nick Huber, in a conversation about finance in the real estate sector.
