Facebook's Moments App Adds Video Support
Facebook recently updated its Moments app for Android devices and gave it the ability to share videos. Moments, which launched last year, scans users' photo libraries and uses facial recognition to find and tag friends in the photos. These photos can then be easily shared with individuals or groups. The new Moments app allows people to share videos in addition to photos, but it doesn't yet support facial recognition for videos. This means users will have to manually tag friends in the videos before sharing. Users can also manage the app's uploading behaviors. Moments is free to download from the Google Play Store.
