Stories Facebook and Instagram Stories adds Spotify integration
| 02 May, 2018, 02:00

This feature will enable you to see the websites and apps that send us information when you use them, delete this information from your account, and turn off our ability to store it associated with your account going forward. In addition to group video calls, WhatsApp will be adding stickers as well.

In the coming weeks, we'll bring video chat to Instagram and give friends a new way to spend time together - even when they aren't actually together.

Video chat is testing now and will roll out globally soon. You can launch a video call just by tapping the new camera icon on the top of a thread. You can chat one-on-one or with a small group - and you can keep the conversation going for as long as you like.

Jumping over to Instagram, this year's F8 was also used to announce that it'll be updated with video chat support.

It will work for both individuals and groups - and, you won't need to stop scrolling through your feed to have a video call. GoPro's integration actually lets you edit your movies inside Facebook's apps, while you can immediately start listening to songs shared from Spotify and SoundCloud.


Instagram will also soon be rolling out a redesigned Explore page organized around topic channels like "animals, ' 'photography" and 'architecture'. The goal of the makeover is to connect users with hashtags and content that they will like.

Facebook is also adding a Watch Party feature, which means you can watch and comment on videos in realtime with your friends.

Finally, Instagram is adding a Camera Effects Platform. With the introduction of group video calling, Facebook certainly hopes that the messaging app will become more popular. This is the page that is personalized for every user to discover new people and accounts to follow.

Instagram is also apparently looking at adding a slow-mo recording feature to Stories. We are re-opening our app review process after making some changes to make it more comprehensive and grounded on ensuring that each of our APIs creates value for people, is transparent and builds trust.

F8 continues this week, we'll let you know about anything else interesting that we learn, and we'll also try to let you know when these features go live.
