Delete your weather apps, Facebook has you covered

Facebook is building a full-fledged weather tool into its app

Facebook has added the ability to view weather forecasts in its mobile apps and online. This new feature is built-in News Feed or on "More" menu in the mobile app. Interestingly, the weather update would be forecasted by Weather.com. However, you can change or add multiple locations from the Settings button at the top of the page and you can also change the units from Fahrenheit to Celsius.

Facebook confirmed that the new feature, an updated version of its earlier "weather greetings", has launched to around 95 percent of its global population as of this week.

The newest change to hit the social media platform Facebook is coming in the form of weather information. Whether you're trying to check (real) news or looking for help in a disaster, Facebook is making it possible for you to do all those while staying within the comfy confines of its social network.

Unlike weather applications though, you can only see the weather of a particular location at a time.

Now you can order food from restaurants directly from their Facebook Page if they're signed up to Delivery.com or Slice.

The site started offering weather greetings to a select group of users last April, and the in-built app builds on that service. To manually find the forecast: open Facebook tap the hamburger "More" tab on the bottom right of the app tap "See More" scroll down and tap "Weather". Facebook has stated that the News Feed "greetings" will be displayed on both desktop and mobile. We do not know for sure though on that since it is still being tested, but it seems likely it will not take long to test out these two new features that integrate into the new Weather part of Facebook that we are already seeing.

According to a company spokesperson, who spoke to TechCrunch, the goal behind the feature is "to develop products that connect people to the things they care about most". That's pretty much the options you get.
