Facebook now wants to help you to find nearby Wi-Fi hotspots.


Facebook, the world's biggest website and app that just celebrated reaching th landmark of 2 billion users is clearly gunning for more. Not content with its stupendous numbers, the firm knows that its growth from here on linked to the growth of digital access. Enter "Find Wifi". Last year in November, Facebook had begun testing a feature for finding free and public hotspots nearby. This feature was rolled-out for iOS devices in selected countries only.Facebook has now expanded this "Find WiFi" feature on both iOS and android devices globally. This feature is useful for those who are in the areas where cellular data is poor.Th social network is rolling out a new feature that lists hotspots for connecting to the internet on its app around the world, it announced in a blog post.

Let's say you're running low on data, or mobile reception is poor in the area, or you need to find somewhere to work with your laptop. You just boot up the Facebook app, select the feature, and it'll show you a map of hotspots nearby - cafes, bars, museums, and so on — that you could visit.It was previously tested in "a handful of countries" in 2016 — and now it is being officially launched globally. (It may not be available in your location immediately — it didn't appear when we checked on an Android device in London - but will in time.)

It's available on both Android and iOS, but it likely won't be exhaustive at first. Companies need to manually add their Wi-Fi network to the app (the same way they would their phone number or street address), and that won't happen overnight.
   
The ‘Find Wi-Fi’ feature is currently available for iOS devices in India, and the update should hit Android users soon.
