Facebook has just rolled out its new feature to help users locate the nearest Wi-Fi hotspots globally. A Facebook spokesperson said, “To help people stay connected with their communities and find experiences around them, we’re rolling out a feature to help find wi-fi near you. We’ve been testing this feature and received great feedback that it’s not only helpful for people when traveling, but is especially useful in areas with poor mobile network connectivity.”
Here’s how to use the feature: Within the Facebook app (on Android or iOS), tap the More tab (the three lines icon on the top right) and then Find Wi-Fi. Once you have the Find Wi-Fi tab open, turn it on. Then you can see all available hotspots near your location on a map, plus information like opening times for the businesses hosting them.
