Ready, Set, Record: Facebook Updates Add Voice Messaging, Video Recording

January 31, 2013  |  

Facebook has just enhanced its capabilities, allowing users to do even more communicating via the social network. Facebook has just debuted an update for its iPhone and iPad app that lets you send each other recorded voice messages.

The LA Times explains how to use it: “To access the feature, select name, tap the ‘+’ sign and select the mic icon. Hold down the red record button that appears and begin speaking.” Just release the button when you’ve finished talking. And to erase the message, slide your finger away from the record icon.

The app allows users to also record videos. Select the “Photo” tab atop the app, tapping the camera icon at the bottom left of the screen and then switching the toggle from photo to video, which also at the bottom left of the screen. Previously, users had to record video outside of the Facebook app, explains the paper.

According to Inside Facebook, users can also hide posts from their News Feeds. Tap a three dot icon on the top right of the post they want to hide and then select the option “Hide.” Download the update from the Apple App Store.

The Times reports that Facebook hasn´t announced if it will be releasing a similar update for its Android app.

Does this sounds like something you’d use?
