In an attempt to popularise its Stories feature, Facebook has decided to introduce a Slideshow button which will enable users to add a still image slideshow to their story.
The update was first spotted by Matt Navara, a social media enthusiast.

The new option provides a simplified way to add a stream of images, which will play out through your Story frames. Of course, you can do this already, by selecting each image one by one for each frame, but the option will make it easier to action, which could prompt more people to try it out.
Presently, it is still possible to add multiple images to the stories on Facebook. However, the Slideshow option provides a simplified way to add a multitude of images to it and boost the usage on the platform.
Facebook’s new move is innovative and may attract its user base to use the feature more often. It will be interesting to see how the users will react to this change.
