Facebook Rolling Out Stories Archive, Cloud Storage And Audio Posts

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

The Facebook Stories Archive feature lets users save their stories to view, re-live them and share them. Connor Hays, the Director of Product Management for the Facebook Stories team add that the team has been talking to the community to understand how they use Facebook Stories.

Users will see a new "Save" button at the bottom of their Story after their have recorded the video or taken the picture, via the Facebook camera.

Tech Crunch When you want to add an Emoji to a Facebook post or comment, you have a limited selection of choices. As such, the company announced three new features today, via The Verge, which will no doubt keep you from ever deleting your account. If you share a voice post to Stories, it will disappear from your story after 24 hours. 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. Facebook has said that these new features are rolling out to users in India first before they're made available to users across the globe.

We are always working to help people share and connect with their friends and family on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them. When using the Facebook camera, users will be able to save the photos and videos they capture, where only they can see them when they log into their Facebook account.

It'll automatically save your clips after they expire so that you can view them whenever or choose to re-share them.

For Facebook, the future is all about Stories.

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. And while Instagram's Stories are now more popular than Snapchat's, neither has really transcended the basic concept which earned the original so much acclaim. The social media giant is launching the new features at a time when it is facing increasing scrutiny over the alleged misuse of user data on its platform across the world. There is no word if the feature is coming to iOS users or not.
