Facebook Introduces Voice Posts And More For Stories

Facebook introduces voice posts, story archive options for users in India

Facebook launches voice posts, two other features from India

The third feature of the ability to archive stories, will roll out in the coming weeks. 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. These conversations help the team understand what Facebook can do to make sure that the feature helps people in connecting and creating content "in meaningful ways". Photos and videos saved in the Facebook cloud can only be viewed by the user and they can be posted at a later time. "The feature will allow you to save the photos and videos that you've captured through your Facebook Camera to a separate space from the rest of your shared photos so that other people can't see them", explained Connor Hayes, Director of Product Management, Facebook, in a select video conference in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Facebook is launching a slew of updates to its Stories feature. This new feature is somewhat similar to Instagram Stories archive, which was made available a year ago, as pointed out by MacRumors. "You will be asked if you want to archive your Stories, and you will need to tap "OK". But now Facebook is expanding its creative work ground by enabling people share voice posts on its platform. The feature is now available for Facebook Lite users while Android users will see the feature in coming weeks. Just like a text-based post or a video-based post, Voice Posts give people a more direct and intimate way to share what they're thinking.

The next new feature is that images captured using the Facebook camera can now automatically be uploaded to the Facebook cloud.

The key point involves an old and abstruse legal term, the " article of manufacture " that incorporates the patented design. It argues that customers were not only buying its handsets because of the design, but also due to their "functionality".

Facebook hasn't released any user numbers for its Stories product, which launched in mid-2017, beyond saying that the figures are "encouraging". If you share a voice post to Stories, it will disappear from your story after 24 hours. You can also reshare them as a story or post it on News Feed.

It makes sense that these new features are rolling out to India first, as they appear to mostly be geared towards developing markets where flagship smartphones are either unaffordable or non-existent.
