Talking about the newly announced features, the first feature allows users to save the photos and videos that they shot using the Facebook camera.
According to the company this allows people to save the photos and videos they capture without taking up space on their phone.
The firm will now let you share voice posts as well, so you don't necessarily have to type in your stories, but can share voice messages as well. But unlike Marketplace, which was introduced in at least 36 countries before it made its way to India, these features are being launched in India first.
Now, you can save your photos on Facebook and share them later. Users can post voice posts on Stories of up to 20 seconds. After a photo disappears from your story, you can find it in your story archive - a place only you can see.
The big new change for Stories will be the option to save photos and videos for later. We can only assume that we are going to see a lot of bathroom singers. Facebook claims the audio posts has been built keeping data restrictions in mind and is optimised for low data/network conditions.
Hayes adds that Facebook is adding this feature in order to "help people share and connect with their friends and family on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them". Voice posts, which are also being introduced, give people a new medium through which they can express themselves. The Facebook app for Android got an update earlier today in Europe, but these new features are not present yet. But now Facebook is expanding its creative work ground by enabling people share voice posts on its platform.
Earlier this year, Facebook rolled out its OLX-like platform, Marketplace, to users across India after testing the feature with a limited audience in Mumbai last year.
Have you ever been about to enjoy a tasty brunch out with friends, just to have your Insta buddy ask you not to touch anything before he/she makes a Story out of it? Under this feature, the stories are archived after they disappear after 24 hours. Facebook will also provide a disable Stories Archive option to stop Facebook from saving your old stories. You can also post any of these Stories to News Feed.
