Instagram tries to attack ClubHouse with audio-only live streams

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The social network, Facebook has introduced a new feature within Instagram live that allows you to turn off your phone’s camera during a broadcast. It is also adding the option to mute the audio during a session.

The first is a small but significant addition, in which Facebook will replicate ClubHouse’s functionalities in yet another of its applications.

The two platforms are not interchangeable with one another, at least so far. You cannot join a conversation on Instagram live in the same way that you can do it at ClubHouse.

The Facebook platform has a long history of copying resources from competing applications, the most famous being the case of Snapchat in which it copied the “Stories” resource and other features until then exclusive to Snapchat.
