Facebook chooses India to launch added features to 'stories'

While announcing the new features Hayes stressed that how Facebook has been taking feedback from the community and especially users in India for the new tools for Stories.

Among the new features include voice posts, stories archive and the ability to save photos and videos from the Facebook Camera app while avoiding using up space on the user's mobile phone.

Hayes said Facebook has more than 217 million people per month in India, which means more than half the Internet population of the country is on Facebook so we're committed to building products with Facebook in mind.

These features are aimed at helping people capture and save memories in a way that they stay connected with these memories long after sharing them on Facebook.

For the first, one can take pictures using the Facebook camera and while the user is given the option of saving images, s/he can choose from saving the photograph in the gallery or in Facebook itself.

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.

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

While addressing a media briefing, Hayes said that the voice recording for stories is similar to the recording voice that Facebook-owned WhatsApp has.

Hayes added that the new "Save Photos and Videos for later" feature can also be used to save photos you might want to share later. "We've found that a lot of people connect through audio", he added. This feature will enable users to capture and save photos using Facebook's camera that they might want to share later.

Given that data breach has been in the news, and Facebook has been in the midst of the Cambridge Analytica row, Hayes also said that the features can only be seen by the profile owner and there will be no data breach when it comes to leaking information. "This could also help people who can't necessarily write in the language they want to share in", the company said.

"Voice posts lets you share in the moment without having to share a photo or video".

Stories archive Similar to Instagram's archive, Facebook now allows users to save their Stories even after 24 hours. Facebook believes that people spend a lot of time creating Stories on the platform where they add things like stickers and text, and sometimes they want to keep their works of art and memories. While users will be able to share 20 seconds long voice posts in Facebook Stories, no such limit has been set on voice posts shared in the News Feed. You can still find it in your Stories Archive if you have Archive turned on.
