The third new feature that Facebook has developed first for its users in India is the Stories Archive that, as its name suggests, lets you archive your Facebook Stories to reshare or re-post them on the social network. The changes are mostly created to give users more ways to save photos and videos directly on Facebook.

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.

Some of you might feel like this is a way for Facebook to profit over your photos, videos and now, your voice, but Facebook has and still is in the hot water for what happened previously.

Voice Posts will let users share an Audio message in their Story. A few of the features appear to be catering towards users with entry-level devices that live in areas with the low-bandwidth internet, or with limited space on their phone. He adds that "Voice posts give people a new medium through which to express themselves".

We are always working to help people share and connect with their friends and family on Facebook in ways that are authentic to them.

To save a photo or video, go to the Facebook Camera and then tap the Save button at the bottom. Facebook revealed that people were using creative workarounds to share through audio already like covering their phone camera with their finger when taking a video and just recording the audio to share.

After completing the creativity with Voice Posts, you can share them on Facebook Stories or as a post on News Feed. Now, it looks like the company may have a new strategy to do just that.

The updated Stories also supports voice posts with a custom background instead of text, so you won't have to type to upload a voice post.

In terms of availability, Facebook is introducing this option on its Android app only and there is no word on when the company will bring this feature on to its iOS app.

Much like the Snapchat equivalent, the archive feature lets users privately save their Stories within the Facebook app.

Facebook hasn't released any user numbers for its Stories product, which launched in mid-2017, beyond saying that the figures are "encouraging". Nevertheless, he said: "These are features that are rolling out first in India but eventually they will be broadly available".
