Facebook introduces Voice posts, Stories archive & Cloud storage features

Facebook rolls out India-first features for its stories format voice posts

People around the world are using Stories to keep up with their friends throughout the day.

To deal with the low percentage of users sharing Facebook Stories, the social media giant is introducing new functionalities to the tool that are now being launched in India and will be shared later at a global scale.

In Facebook's research, the company found that many people have to delete a photo from their phone before they're able to take a new one.

Facebook has announced that it's bringing some new additions to its Stories feature to gauge more audience. The idea behind this feature is to let users save space on their smartphones as the photos and videos get saved on the cloud.

Though the waving of the phone could not be avoided, this new feature will certainly reduce the time of waiting before you can actually start to enjoy your meal. These memories can be seen right when you log into your Facebook account and help you save the storage on your smartphone.

To save a photo or video, go to the Facebook Camera and then tap the Save button at the bottom.

On the question why, Facebook is adding Voice Posts to Stories, the company responded, "We are always working to help people share and connect with their friends and family on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them".

According to Facebook, for some people photos and text are not the most effective way to communicate. The feature is now available for Facebook Lite users while Android users will see the feature in coming weeks. He adds that "Voice posts give people a new medium through which to express themselves".

Stories is a feature that lets people create sort of montage of their photos and videos that stay on top of news feed on top of the Facebook app for 24 hours. Now, Voice posts will be a new option in the Facebook Camera. At any point of time, users will be able to view them at a later time and even reshare them. Archived stories will be viewable on the new "Your Archive" section of the Facebook app.

This is significant not just because Facebook's making a Stories feature that doesn't rely on the camera, but because audio messages are already incredibly popular in India and many other countries.

Another upcoming feature allows users to archive their Stories, not unlike Instagram's relatively new archiving feature.
