Save photos and videos for later Facebook users will now be able to save the photos and videos taken through Facebook camera to the social networking platform. At this time, the feature will only be available for Facebook Lite users, however, Android users will see this in the coming months. They will be given the option to save the photos and videos directly to their Facebook account.
Facebook Camera is also getting an Audio option which can be used to share voice messages as Voice Posts.
But free (and apparently unlimited) photo storage and automatic archiving bridge the gap between ephemeral sharing and Facebook's more typical posts. However, it is certainly a fresh thing for Facebook users and is created to let users start sharing their voice notes on the social networking platform.
Unfortunately, Facebook is yet to confirm Voice Posts for Stories rollout plans for iOS. India is home to hundreds of millions of users and these features should get them interested in using Facebook Stories more.
A voice post on stories can be up to 20 seconds. This isn't something all new from the Menlo Park, California-headquartered company has it already offers voice messaging support to WhatsApp.

You'll need to tap the Archive button (looks like a small clock) that is located in the Stories section above your News Feed.
Stories archive Similar to Instagram's archive, Facebook now allows users to save their Stories even after 24 hours. You can go back and view these Stories at any time, or choose to reshare them as a post or story.
Facebook hasn't released any user numbers for its Stories product, which launched in mid-2017, beyond saying that the figures are "encouraging". With the archive, users will be able to relive their memories and re-share them as well if they wish to do so. Nevertheless, he said: "These are features that are rolling out first in India but eventually they will be broadly available".
