Facebook iOS app gets voice, video recording options
Monday, January 28, 2013 @ 4:40pm

Facebook has updated its core iOS app to v5.4, adding several features. The most significant may be voice messages, an option originally limited to Messenger. Videos, meanwhile, can now be recorded and shared from within the app, eliminating the need to use Apple's Camera or a third-party alternative.



People should, lastly, have access to a better Nearby tab. Still missing from the software is Messenger's VoIP call feature. It remains to be seen if Facebook is putting more polish on the technology or intends to keep it a Messenger exclusive.
