Back in June, Facebook launched a new app for iOS and Android called Moments. Its purpose was to make sharing pictures from events with friends very easy. Today, Facebook Moments has received a big update, taking it to version 2.0. This is already available in the iTunes App Store and should make its way to the Google Play Store before the end of the day.
The new iteration brings with it support for auto-created videos. Namely what this means is that for moments with at least six photos, the app will automagically create a movie for you – one that’s ready to be instantly shared to Facebook, of course.
The movies can be set to music, and you get to choose from about a dozen options here, depending on the mood you’re in – things like “inspired” or “happy” are in the list of music backgrounds.
Moving on, a new moment can be created by simply tapping the plus button at the top right, and the progress of your photo uploads is now easily trackable.
Facebook Moments has been translated into 34 languages, and it should be available in many more countries than before. With the 2.0 release, it’s also received the usual assortment of bug fixes and performance improvements, thanks to which you’ll see improved upload behavior.
