Facebook is holding a special event today at around 10.30 pm India time where it is due to show off a new product. One day ahead of the event, the company seems to have rolled out a new feature to the comments box on the site.
Users would have noticed a tiny little camera appearing on some comment boxes. The feature lets users add a photo straight into the comment. We tried uploading a picture via the little camera and it totally worked.
Strangely though the option doesn't appear to be universal. Not all comment options seems to be showing the camera and it doesn't look like Facebook has rolled it out to pages either.
According to The Verge, Facebook confirmed that it had rolled out feature and said it will be rolling out globally to both the desktop and mobile websites.
The report states that Users on Facebook's apps will be able to view photo comments, but they will not be able to upload such comments until a later date. Also GIFs are not supported in the photo option.
