Facebook 'Find WiFi' feature sees global reach
Facebook rolls out 'Find Wi-Fi' globally to help users stay connected
Facebook's ‘Find Wi-Fi' feature first rolled out last year in selected countries, but the social networking giant has extended this service globally.
The service enables Facebook users to locate available Wi-Fi hotspots that businesses have shared with Facebook on their Page. This is now available worldwide on both iOS and Android platforms for Facebook users on the go and it is particularly useful in areas where cellular data is limited.
The new update will automatically roll out, meaning Facebook users do not need to download anything.
Here is how to access Facebook's ‘Find Wi-Fi' feature:
To find Wi-Fi hotspots, open your Facebook app, click on the "More" tab and then "Find Wi-Fi." Once in the "Find Wi-Fi" tab you may need to turn it on. You can then browse the closest available hotspots on a map, and learn more about the businesses hosting them.
