Facebook updates Stories with audio, archiving and saved clips

Facebook has introduced a number of updates to its Facebook stories feature in India.

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

Facebook is pushing new updates to its Stories feature, which will be rolled out to the Indian market first.

The most interesting feature is the Cloud Storage for photos and videos taken with the in-built Facebook camera app. The change can be seen in its Facebook Camera that is in-app.

Facebook has announced that it's bringing some new additions to its Stories feature to gauge more audience. 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. As the name suggests, this feature allows you to share a moment without having to share a photo or video. Now, it looks like the company may have a new strategy to do just that. From Facebook Lite to Messenger Lite, Facebook's focus has been on optimising its platform for the masses which have low-end phones with slower networks and lesser storage.

Facebook updates Stories with audio, archiving and saved clips

In the coming weeks, the company is going to introduce an archive for people to save the stories most important to them. Also, these three new features are rolling out to India first, with the rest of the world to follow soon after.

According to Facebook, for some people photos and text are not the most effective way to communicate. Instead of starting a post from the camera, people will be able to record an audio clip and simply add a colored background (and maybe some emoji). Voice posts give people a new medium through which to express themselves. Since voice posts work in a similar fashion as stories, it will disappear after 24 hours. This option will be available by using the app's built-in camera.

Nearly as an afterthought, Facebook is also adding voice posts, which allows the camera-shy to make fun updates without having to put on makeup first. At any point of time, users will be able to view them at a later time and even reshare them. "You can still find it in your Stories Archive if you have Archive turned on", explains Hayes.

The social media platforms have lately seen a boom where users have been experimenting a lot on how they can be more creative while sharing their memories. Several feature additions set to roll out in the next few months, however, may put Facebook's version in a league of its own.
