Facebook rolls out Find Wi-Fi feature everywhere in the world

Last year, Facebook launched a new feature called Find Wi-Fi on iPhone and Android, but it was only made available in a handful of countries. The new functionality would allow Facebook users who are traveling to find Wi-Fi hotspots nearby.

Well, starting today, Facebook announced that it's expanding the availability of Find Wi-Fi globally on both the Android and iOS platforms. Users who receive the feature on their smartphones will be able to locate available Wi-Fi hotspots that have been shared by businesses with Facebook from their Page.

In order to find new Wi-Fi hotspots using the new functionality, you must open the Facebook app on your smartphone tap on the “More” tab and then “Find Wi-Fi.” Obviously, your Wi-Fi connection should be turned so that you can browse the closest available hotspots appearing on the map (if any).

The update is rolled out automatically from the server side, so you won't have to download anything yourself. However, you should check from time to time to see whether or not Facebook pushed the Find Wi-Fi feature to your phone.
