Facebook rolls out voice posts, Stories archive and cloud storage feature

Facebook rolls out voice posts, Stories archive and cloud storage feature Facebook rolls out voice posts, Stories archive and cloud storage feature

Facebook hasn't released any user numbers for its Stories product, which launched in mid-2017, beyond saying that the figures are "encouraging".

The three new features mostly revolve around Facebook's camera app which is baked into its main app. The photos and videos saved will appear in a separate folder and will be visible only to them when they log into their Facebook account. It can also be used to save photos they might want to share later, so they don't have to edit or post them immediately.

For now, the updates are only rolling out to users in India, but Facebook says they will soon arrive worldwide, according to TechCrunch. Not only does it virtually eliminate the ephemerality that has characterized Stories up to this point, but it incorporates it more closely with Facebook's existing uses. This could also help people who can't necessarily write in the language they want to share in. Instead of starting a post from the camera, people will be able to record an audio clip and simply add a colored background (and maybe some emoji). The most important as far as I am concerned is the return of "voice posts". The new features include Voice Posts, Stories archive, and a slate of new cloud storage features.

Last August, Facebook announced that it was bringing Stories to its desktop site in a move that many viewed as a last-ditch effort to make the product popular.

Facebook has introduced a number of updates to its Facebook stories feature in India. Usually, Stories delete themselves after 24 hours, but you'll be able to prevent that from happening for the Stories you value most. You can always choose to not save them.

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".

Saving Facebook Stories to your smartphone.

Keeping privacy in mind, Voice Posts can be shared in the same way that Stories and News Feed posts are shared on Facebook.

Tech giant Google is another company that has been launching products targeted at the India market and then taking it to other parts of the world.

The most recent use of Snapchat-like features were introduced to WhatsApp and Messenger - all of which let users share decorative content that disappears in 24 hours.
