Not Afraid to Go Out Without a Network Facebook Open to Find
2021.08.21 / By hqt
It could be the answer to many user’s prayers. Facebook has launched a new feature to show users where their nearest wifi hots pot is.
Called ‘Find wi-fi’ it shows users a map with the nearest access points mapped.
“Today we’re beginning to roll out Find Wi-Fi everywhere in the world on iPhone and Android” Facebook’s Alex Himel said.
“We launched Find Wi-Fi in a handful of countries last year and found it’s not only helpful for people who are traveling or on-the-go, but especially useful in areas where cellular data is scarce.”
Find Wi-Fi helps you locate available Wi-Fi hot spots nearby that businesses have shared with Facebook from their Page.
So wherever you are, you can easily map the closest connections when your data connection is weak.
The Next Web speculates that Facebook’s push to improve its Live feature may be behind the new service.
