Facebook Introduces Cloud Storage, Voice Posts, And Stories Archive

Facebook Camera’s Save feature

Facebook is introducing a slew of updates to its Stories and Camera features, starting with users in India.

"It is common for people in India to share devices...people have told us they want to save their photos to a more personal space that is tied to their identity and not just the device they are using", said Connor Hayes, Director of Product Management, Facebook. Currently, it is possible to save photos and videos taken on the Camera to a phone's camera roll, but not to a Facebook account.

It'll automatically save your clips after they expire so that you can view them whenever or choose to re-share them. The Facebook Stories Archive feature lets users save their stories to view, re-live them and share them.

Users will be able to put a background colour to audio posts or a background picture. The saved clips also mean you can share them when you're in a more connected area if your signal is too poor to upload them right away.

This feature will initially be available only on Facebook for Android from today and the other two will be rolled out next month.

All of the photos and videos that are saved to Facebook Camera will only be visible to the user after they login to Facebook.

Facebook on Wednesday announced several new updates for its Indian consumer, following which the updates will be part of Facebook's global platform, it was announced.

However, "the Palestinians will not give up resistance, as they have not ceased it over the past seven decades", he said.

Last, and potentially most interesting, is the addition of voice posts.

According to Facebook, for some people photos and text are not the most effective way to communicate.

The feature is located at the top of the page below notifications and above the trending news links.

Explaining the reason they chose India first, Hayes said that one of the main studies the Facebook team found was the number of families that shared one phone.

At Facebook's annual F8 developer conference, chief product officer Chris Cox said Stories is on a "path to surpass feeds as the primary way people share things with their friends sometime next year".

Stories appear at the top of the Instagram feed. There is no word if the feature is coming to iOS users or not.

Again, users selfies and videos and add lively filters, effects and masks that vanish within 24 hours.
