Facebook: How to make live audio streaming on mobile

Facebook allows your users to start streaming live audio from their mobile phone. The Live Audio feature, released in December 2016, is available in the Android and iPhone (iOS) mobile app. Without displaying camera images, the feature still allows people to tag in the post and perform actions like deleting or saving a replay on the timeline.

If you want to launch podcasts or start live conversations with friends and followers of your Facebook profile, follow the steps in the tutorial below.
