This feature will initially be available only on Facebook for Android from today and the other two will be rolled out next month. The aim is to make it more attractive to people who can't use Stories the way it is now - and therefore don't use it at all.

Like the Facebook Camera feature, it saves your posts privately.

People will now be able to save the photos and videos they capture through the Facebook camera, where only they can see them when they log into their Facebook account.

Tech Crunch When you want to add an Emoji to a Facebook post or comment, you have a limited selection of choices. They mostly focus on Facebook's camera app, which is embedded into the main app.

But free (and apparently unlimited) photo storage and automatic archiving bridge the gap between ephemeral sharing and Facebook's more typical posts. Facebook didn't say if there's a capacity limit to save photos and videos in the cloud, according to The Verge.

Last August, Facebook announced that it was bringing Stories to its desktop site in a move that many viewed as a last-ditch effort to make the product popular.

Though the waving of the phone could not be avoided, this new feature will certainly reduce the time of waiting before you can actually start to enjoy your meal. Facebook claims the audio posts has been built keeping data restrictions in mind and is optimised for low data/network conditions.

Have you ever wondered just how much "bad stuff" goes up on Facebook, and how the platform enforces its Community ... He adds that "Voice posts give people a new medium through which to express themselves". "You can also add stickers, text, or doodles".

A voice post on stories can be up to 20 seconds. At F8, the company shared the surprising revelation that the Stories format is growing faster than feeds. However, the recording time is restricted by the local storage available on the device. There is no word on its availability on iOS.

The new features include Voice Posts, Stories archive, and a slate of new cloud storage features. Facebook has been one place where you get a lot to see. If users want, they can choose to not save them.

You'll need to tap the Archive button (looks like a small clock) that is located in the Stories section above your News Feed.

That, in and of itself, wouldn't be exciting: both Snapchat and Instagram already offer options for saving Stories so they won't disappear.

The firm will now let you share voice posts as well, so you don't necessarily have to type in your stories, but can share voice messages as well. Facebook will give users the option of also turning off the archive so that the Stories are not saved. With the archive, users will be able to relive their memories and re-share them as well if they wish to do so.
