Facebook introduces Moments, lets you share photos with your friends privately

FB moments

Facebook has just announced a new standalone photo app named Moments, that eliminates the need for everyone to take the same group shot just to make sure everyone gets a copy.

How it works is that the app will allow you to share your photos with friends who are in the shot and get photos you are in as well. It accomplishes this by syncing photos and connecting people with facial recognition technology to find out who was there with you without having to plaster it all over your feeds or take multiple shots of the same thing.

The app will then group together photos on your phone based on when they were taken and you can then privately sync those photos with specific friends and vice versa. You can also use the search function to find more photos that have specific friends in them too, so you can catch all the stuff you missed because you were busy snapping somewhere else.

Check out the video below to see how it works.

While the app doesn’t seem to be ready for download for Malaysian users , you can still download it here for free for Android and iOS with an APK downloader.
