Big news for Facebook users! Users will now enjoy the pleasure of uploading videos in the comment sections to express themselves. Facebook recently announced that the users can now upload a video of themselves in the comment section to share their reactions.
This feature was first prototyped at facebook on 50th Hackathon early this year and this prototype had the capability to upload a video into comments and replies on posts. Facebook mentioned in one of the blog note “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. This adds to the suite of multimedia features within comments including links, photos, stickers, emoji, and starting this week video.”
