Now, you can find free wi-fi hotspots near your location with Facebook. The social networking site is rolling out its Find Wi-Fi feature worldwide.
Previously, the company introduced it only in a few selected countries but now people around the globe would be able to look for free hotspot connections nearby.
It will take some time to update the application for people around the world including Pakistan but we are hoping that we will soon utilize this feature on our phones.
How will it work
The new feature by Facebook will be available for all Android and iPhone devices. Users can find it in the more tab of the mobile app from where you can tap on the Find Wi-Fi option.
As the name indicates, this feature helps the user to search all available Wi-Fi hotspots that are near their location. The downside is that the businesses need to enlist the free Wi-Fi connection on their Facebook pages.
Facebook Engineering Director Alex Himel revealed that the feature is going to help the users especially travelers to find and connect to the Internet where the mobile broadband connection is not strong.
While traveling, people can make a list of places that offer free Wi-Fi connection before leaving their house/ hotel room to stay connected on the go.
Earlier this year, Punjab Government introduced Free Wi-Fi facility to its people. It also created a mobile application that can help them to locate the nearby hotspots to access the Internet.
