Facebook, the social media giant is continuously improving it, adding new features. Recently, emojis were standardized for all platforms and many new emoji were added to messenger, on the basis of gender and race diversity.
Now a new feature is introduced by Bob Baldwin which allows users to post videos in comments. “At Facebook’s 50th Hackathon early this year, we prototyped the ability to upload a video into comments and replies on posts, because we wanted to enable more engaging and immersive conversations,” he wrote. “This adds to the suite of multimedia features within comments including: links, photos, stickers, emoji, and starting today video.”
Video comments are now available worldwide, does not matter what the platform OS is or location. Videos can be uploaded in reply to a post by people or page and also within groups and events.
It is very easy to use the new feature, all you need to do is just click on the camera icon next to comment textbox .The icon was earlier for uploading photo only. Now it serves as multimedia upload button to upload picture or video from your gallery.
“At the hackathon, we coded as quickly as we could all day, and by the evening we could feel the pieces starting to come together. A little past midnight, we had the feature mostlyworking on both desktop and mobile apps,” he wrote. “And when we demoed our hack to fellow employees the following week, they absolutely loved it!”
Many users are posting their videos just to show they can do it and also show their happiness.
