Facebook updates Stories to complete its Snapchat domination

Facebook updates Stories to complete its Snapchat domination

The social network has also said that an archive feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks which will let users save the Facebook Stories they want to preserve.

Hayes adds that Facebook is adding this feature in order to "help people share and connect with their friends and family on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them". The changes will let you save your photos and videos directly to your account in the Facebook cloud, share voice messages with friends, and archive your favourite Facebook Stories, the report said. These photos will not be saved on the users' phones but will only be accessible on their Facebook account.

Interestingly, Facebook will allow people to share your Voice Posts much like they would a story or a post on News Feed. The app is also adding the ability to share audio messages to Stories. This new feature is somewhat similar to Instagram Stories archive, which was made available previous year, as pointed out by MacRumors.

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. You can still find it in your Stories Archive if you have Archive turned on. 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.

According to Facebook, for some people photos and text are not the most effective way to communicate.

Users will be able to put a background colour to audio posts or a background picture. Usually, Stories delete themselves after 24 hours, but you'll be able to prevent that from happening for the Stories you value most.

Like on Instagram, the stories posted on Facebook disappear automatically after 24-hours.

Facebook has announced that it will be bringing three new features to its Android and iOS apps. You can go back and view these Stories at any time, or choose to reshare them as a post or story. Facebook will also provide a disable Stories Archive option to stop Facebook from saving your old stories.

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

During their journey in India, the Stories team found that photos and videos are not always the best way to share content. The feature is quite similar to Snapchat's where users can save their photos to the app and is visible only to them.
