Facebook has updated the iOS app and has added the ability to record and share voice messages and video recordings from within the app. The feature was previously available in the Facebook Messenger app for Android, but the update brings it to the social network’s main app.
InsideFacebook has more: “Users can now shoot video directly from their Facebook app by selecting ‘Photo’ atop their News Feed or ‘Share Photo’ from Timeline and then swiping from camera mode to video mode, as we’ve circled below. Though taking video from Facebook is now possible, it is fairly cumbersome to do. Video sharing is more fluid in Facebook’s Poke app and could provide some guidance for how the company might implement a better experience in the main app.”
The version 5.4 update also includes an update to the “nearby” tab to make it easier to check in places.
