Facebook updates Stories to complete its Snapchat domination

Facebook introduces Stories on its main app 4 Facebook updates Stories to complete its Snapchat domination

Facebook unquestionably "borrowed" liberally from Snapchat when launching Stories. There is now no limit for a voice post that is shared to News Feed, but the recording time is restricted by the local storage on the user's device. Voice posts, which are also being introduced, give people a new medium through which they can express themselves.

Will your Facebook Story with Voice Posts use more data? However, it is certainly a fresh thing for Facebook users and is created to let users start sharing their voice notes on the social networking platform.

The three new features mostly revolve around Facebook's camera app which is baked into its main app. Now, it looks like the company may have a new strategy to do just that. Facebook says this will be private to the user, through traditionally Stories disappear after 24 hours. "You can also add stickers, text, or doodles". However, the recording time is restricted by the local storage available on the device. Now, Voice posts will be a new option in the Facebook Camera. There is no word on its availability on iOS.

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. We can only assume that we are going to see a lot of bathroom singers. At any point of time, users will be able to view them at a later time and even reshare them. Facebook will give users the option of also turning off the archive so that the Stories are not saved.

With each story expiring in 24 hours, Stories archive will provide users access to all the stories they have previously shared on the platform. As it turns out, an archive of Stories seemed to be an assertive move; they noticed that many people don't have enough space on their phones to store content and instead rely deeply on the social network to keep their memories alive. After a photo disappears from a story, they can find it in the story archive, a place only the user can see, though they can always choose to not save them.

Hayes didn't provide any specific timeline for the availability of the new features in the global markets.

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.
