Workplace updates

Workplace by Facebook has brought in a number of updates with an aim to enable faster connectivity, enhanced lighting, and accessibility, and better post creation.

Let’s take a look at the new changes offered by Workplace by Facebook as part of its latest updates:

Dark Mode

Workplace’s Dark Mode changes the background from white to black. It can help to reduce eye strain and glare from your device, specifically in low light conditions.

Even for iOS users, Workplace will work with the Dark Mode setting of your mobile phone. If your device is set to Dark Mode, your Workplace Chat iOS app will automatically be set to Dark Mode too. In addition to Dark Mode, Workplace also plans to introduce improved focus management, easier keyboard navigation, and support for screen readers.

The initiation of ‘Areas’ mapping to customize the experience with frontline workers into groups based on criteria such as geography, department, etc., will aid managers and their team’s access to Workplace and enable custom pop-up notices based on the area. The Video Conferencing feature at Workplace ensures live editing which can be customized by adding filters, especially for virtual events.
