Those who love Facebook's Stories feature can finally enjoy it in their Groups as well. Group Stories has been tested starting earlier this year, and now this feature is finally available for Facebook users all around the world on iOS, Android, or desktop.

Facebook's Stories feature is one of the more popular treats for individual users of the social network — however, I am one of those who could live without it without feeling that something is missing — and now it is finally available for groups all over the world.

According to Facebook, "Group stories are a casual and easy way to share fun, fast, fleeting moments with specific groups of people." Interacting with group stories is easy for both admins and regular users, since both can create stories by simply tapping "Create Story" at the top of the group page. Even more, regular members can perform this operation by going to the story tray at the top of the News Feed on their mobile app, and then tapping the "Add" button.

As expected, administrators can set Story posting permissions and approvals, mute or block members from contributing, delete and/or report individual photos and videos that should not be in a certain group story, manage pending and reported stories, and so on.

Have you tried the new feature? Do you think that Facebook groups really needed it? As usual, feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
