Facebook introduces feature to help locate Wi-Fi worldwide
Facebook has introduced a feature called “Find Wi-Fi” worldwide on iPhone and Android to helps to locate Wi-Fi hotspots nearby.
Alex Himel, Engineering Director said that launched Find Wi-Fi in a handful of countries last year. It was found to be 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. Users can easily map the closest connections wherever they are when the data connection is weak.
To find Wi-Fi hotspots, open the Facebook app, click on the “More” tab and then “Find Wi-Fi.” Once in the “Find Wi-Fi” tab users may need to turn it on.
Users can then browse the closest available hotspots on a map, and learn more about the businesses hosting them. They will also get details of opening hours, so you can avoid places that have shut up for the day.
