The third new feature is an archive where users will store their Facebook Stories.
When Facebook rolled out Stories globally in March of 2017, Mark Zuckerberg said he expected Stories would eventually overtake posts in feeds as the most popular way people shared content on Facebook. This feature will enable users to capture and save photos using Facebook's camera that they might want to share later.
It'll automatically save your clips after they expire so that you can view them whenever or choose to re-share them.
It looks like Facebook is implementing a lot of features in order to bring users from Instagram and give them a reason to stay on the native platform. The saved clips also mean you can share them when you're in a more connected area if your signal is too poor to upload them right away.
All of these new features, including voice posts, are already available for users in India, with Facebook planning a global rollout "shortly after".
All of the photos and videos that are saved to Facebook Camera will only be visible to the user after they login to Facebook.

Starbucks To Foray into China
Starbucks has announced ambitious plans to double the number of stores across China to 6,000 locations by the end of 2022. Currently, 60 percent of transactions in its China stores are through mobile payments.
'We know that the performance and reliability of viewing and posting Stories is extremely important to people around the world, especially those with slower connections, ' Facebook's director of Stories Connor Hayes told TechCrunch. Note that only you can see your archived Stories unless you choose to share them to your Stories again or post them on your News Feed. Just two weeks back the company announced at its annual developer conference F8 that WhatsApp has hit 450 million daily active users. Up until now, users could now share images and videos on Facebook.
Facebook did not provide statistics around the popularity of voice messaging in India.
Since then, it has released a number of updates to try and attract more users to the product.
The feature is located at the top of the page below notifications and above the trending news links. Facebook claims the audio posts has been built keeping data restrictions in mind and is optimised for low data/network conditions.
So it seems unlikely that Facebook will abandon its Stories platform anytime soon. There is no word if the feature is coming to iOS users or not.
It makes sense that these new features are rolling out to India first, as they appear to mostly be geared towards developing markets where flagship smartphones are either unaffordable or non-existent.
