The third new feature is an archive where users will store their Facebook Stories. The company now lets users save photos and videos for later viewing, upload Voice Posts and archive Stories to "re-live those memories". This new feature is ideal for users who don't have enough storage on their device.
Addressing the limited phone storage issues faced by most Indians, Facebook has added a feature that will allow users to save photos and videos for later. But only they can see them when they log on. The idea behind this feature is to let users save space on their smartphones as the photos and videos get saved on the cloud.More news: Walmart has a new website for wealthy shoppers - here's what it's like
'Saving photos and videos can be used to save what you might want to post later - so you don't have to edit or post them while you're out with friends, and instead enjoy the moment at the concert or share them later, ' Hayes told TechCrunch. There is no word if the feature is coming to iOS users or not. These can be accompanied by images saved in the handset. This new feature is somewhat similar to Instagram Stories archive, which was made available past year, as pointed out by MacRumors. Also, these three new features are rolling out to India first, with the rest of the world to follow soon after. It is also possible for other people to share your voice posts on the News Feed. Voice posts give people a new medium through which to express themselves. The feature is quite similar to Snapchat's where users can save their photos to the app and is visible only to them. Specifically, it's adding an archive for Stories posts, so you can save the ones you like to a permanent gallery. This feature is coming in next few weeks.
After taking a picture in "Focus", users are encouraged to add creative tools like filters, stickers and text before sending them to friends, via Instagram Direct or as a new Story.More news: Deadpool Tries Out His Best Trump Jokes During Stephen Colbert's Monologue
Your Voice Posts on Stories will not be stored until you have archived the Story. If you do not want to archive your Stories, you have the option to decline.
Nearly as an afterthought, Facebook is also adding voice posts, which allows the camera-shy to make fun updates without having to put on makeup first. "You can still find it in your Stories Archive if you have Archive turned on", explains Hayes.More news: Coli update: You can now safely eat romaine again
However, as it struggled to take off, the company at one point displayed grayed out icons in the Stories space in an effort to make it appear less empty.
