Facebook introduces key updates in Stories, beginning from India
(10 days ago)
San Francisco, May 17 : Facebook has rolled out new updates in its Stories feature that are available for the users in India first and will reach the global users later.
One such update is "Voice Posts" that will let users share their thoughts via audio to their friends and families.
"Voice posts lets you share in the moment without having to share a photo or video. This could also help people who can't necessarily write in the language they want to share in," Connor Hayes, Director of Product Management, Facebook Stories, wrote in a blog post on Wednesday.
People will now be able to save the photos and videos they capture through the Facebook camera, where only they can see them when they log into their Facebook account.
"This allows people to save the photos and videos they capture without taking up space on their phone," the post read.
It can also be used to save photos you might want to share later, so you don't have to edit or post them while you're out with your friends and instead enjoy the moment and share them later.
"In the coming weeks we're rolling out an archive for people to save the stories most important to them. After a photo disappears from your story, you can find it in your story archive - a place only you can see. You can always choose to not save them," said the post.
