Facebook has just released a 3D-Touch feature that allows iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus users to interact better and faster with the social network among others. Just by pressing the Facebook app icon a little harder, users will be able to access a number of shortcuts that will allow them to take or upload photos and videos, or simply to update their networks about their statuses.

Apple device owners will be able to utilize the features without any problems, and the reviews that have come in have indicated that most users like the new Facebook feature for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Facebook’s rollout appears to have added to third-party support for 3D-Touch users, and the latest app works almost like Apple Watch’s Force Touch which also allows users to exert slight pressure on screen icons to access hidden or additional features.

With the 3D-Touch app, Facebook users on iPhone 6s and its plus model will be able to gain faster and better access to more apps, and some reviewers say it is just like right-clicking for apps. It provides a shortcut to most mobile apps and enhances the gadget’s interaction with the user.

The 3D-Touch app was first rolled out for Apple’s Mail, Music, Maps, and other default applications, but it is now getting to be a regular feature of third-party apps as can be witnessed in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.

Now owned by Facebook, Instagram was one of the first social media to launch 3D-Touch, but since Facebook is now adopting it – the app will reach a wider audience the world over and may leverage on the social media’s reach to become one of the top mobile apps of all time.

Facebook’s other apps, including WhatsApp, Messenger, Moments, Groups and others, have not yet rolled out the new 3D-Touch app. Apart from Facebook, other top apps now supporting 3D Touch include Pinterest, Jet, Twitter, Shazam, OpenTable, chat apps like Confide and FireChat, Medium, Dropbox and Evernote, among others.

Meanwhile, Facebook has not released update notes about the 3D-Touch app launch, and so many users may not really be aware of the app release. But then, that is becoming a norm in the industry and app users don’t always get to know when there’s a new version of their app or when some changes occur to it.

iTunes now has the new Facebook app, but it is not yet clear if the social media has support for Live Photos among other features in its new update for iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
