Facebook Stories To Add Archive Options And Audio Messages

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

Just like Instagram, users will now be able to archive their stories and view them even after they disappear from their stories tab. After taking a picture, the app will ask you if you want to save your pictures on the cloud, rather than on your device and users can only see their photos and videos after they have logged in to the app.

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 unquestionably "borrowed" liberally from Snapchat when launching Stories. The app is also adding the ability to share audio messages to Stories. The idea behind this feature is to let users save space on their smartphones as the photos and videos get saved on the cloud. "We have no news to announce at this time", the company said. The updates are meant to help users share more on Facebook, while also making sure that Facebook Stories continues to grow its number of users.

The Facebook Camera will now have a new Audio button for Voice Posts.

Have you ever wondered just how much "bad stuff" goes up on Facebook, and how the platform enforces its Community ... These three new features are debuting first in India though will gradually be available all across the globe. Usually, Stories delete themselves after 24 hours, but you'll be able to prevent that from happening for the Stories you value most.

Facebook is interestingly bringing its Voice Posts feature first to Facebook Lite users, though Android users on the regular Facebook app will see its availability in the coming months. The pitch, to both publishers and brands, is that its software allows them to create a significant amount of video content with minimal investment of time and money. Facebook has also provided a dedicated screen that will appear after the recording is stopped to let you pick a background colour, background photo, text, doodle, or a sticker - matching the theme of your Voice Posts. "You can still find it in your Stories Archive if you have Archive turned on", explains Hayes. You can also reshare them as a story or post it on News Feed.

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

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.
