Facebook has begun public beta testing of a new Hotline app. The web-based Q&A application is a mixture of Instagram Live and Clubhouse.

In Hotline, creators will be allowed to talk to an audience, who can then ask questions through text or audio. Unlike Clubhouse, however, creators can choose to turn on their cameras for the event rather than being audio-only.

On Wednesday, real estate investor Nick Huber led a public Livestream of the app’s features, speaking about industrial real estate as a secondary income source. The Livestream gives an idea of the kind of “creators” Hotline would be attempting to attract once it goes online.

Eric Hazzard, who joined Facebook when it acquired his Q&A app tbh. The app expanded to 2.5 million daily active users in nine weeks and received over 1 billion poll responses. With Hotline, Hazzard is creating a product in the Q&A space for Facebook this time.

The app differs from Clubhouse in its accessibility for “audience” participants, who will see their questions appear in a list at the top of the stream, which other users may then choose to upvote or downvote.

The creator will also have the option of bringing listeners into the “stage” area to join them in a back-and-forth that will be more akin to Zoom than its audio-only forefathers.

Facebook gives users more control over posts comments and News Feed

Meanwhile, a Facebook official said that “With Hotline, we’re hoping to understand how interactive, live multimedia Q&As can help people learn from experts in areas like professional skills, just as it helps those experts build their businesses,”.However, Facebook has not given details on when this feature will be available.
