Facebook has developed a new feature aimed at travelers and people who are always on the go. This feature, called Find WiFi, will help people stay connected and be up-to-date to everything that’s new even when they are not at home.
Stay connected even when you are traveling
In fact, Find WiFi is not new to Facebook, but this is the first time when it becomes available to everyone. It was launched for the first time last year but, now, Facebook will start rolling it out all over the world. As it is suggested by the name, this feature helps you detect available hotspots in your area.
For a hotspot to be displayed by Facebook, the business in question has to share it first from their page. Then, people can find it on the hotspot list. Facebook has already started rolling out this feature everywhere, and it will be available on both Android and iOS.
The app will be rolled out globally
They have already received user feedback from those areas where Find WiFi was already available. Alex Himel, the engineering director at Facebook, said they had received positive feedback so far. Users found the feature useful when they were visiting a new place, as well as in those areas where they had a weak data connection.
The feature is really easy to find. After you open the app, you only have to select the More tab, and then select Find WiFi. Afterwards, you will have all the available hotspots displayed on a map. This is great to browse before setting on an expedition around town, so that you don’t have to roam around without a connection.
This adds to a series of improvements brought by Facebook, including a mechanism to filter spam posts and remove fake information from the News Feed. By using artificial intelligence, Facebook will detect misleading content and remove it from the feed.
