Where to find Facebook's new Weather app

Facebook has added the ability to view weather forecasts in its mobile apps and online. You can click the settings icon to monitor the weather in other parts of the world. You also can choose to display the temperatures in either Fahrenheit or Celsius.

Unfortunately you can not swipe through multiple locations, so if you want to change to a different location you have to go back to the settings button each time.

If more information is required, the very bottom of Facebook's forecast section has a "see more weather info" button that launches Weather.com.

"We are doing this because our goal is to ... create moments of joy in people's day, like simply telling you that it's going to rain later", according to a Facebook spokesperson. You can download Facebook from the App Store for free.

But of course, we know Facebook wants to be a lot of things: a definitive marketplace, the new LinkedIn, a center for livestreaming, and more, so it comes as no surprise that something as simple as weather information is now bundled inside the app - another reason not to exit the app altogether.

Uber and Lyft could be coming to upstate NY under legislation passed by the state Senate. Uber says it already conducts background checks and that fingerprinting isn't necessary.

Weather enthusiasts can also get notifications with more detailed greetings, which will likely be available by the end of the month.

For now, the weather section on Facebook has limited visibility and features, but it could be taken to another level by the social media giant.

Facebook has been contacted for comment. You no longer have to leave Facebook to find out. Facebook has stated that the News Feed "greetings" will be displayed on both desktop and mobile. That's pretty much the options you get.

For lots of films you can now buy movie tickets from their Facebook page via Fandango. You will be able to see the weather information whether you are on iOS or Android, and this is a unique feature that will help Facebook stand out. It would be found in the place where users can see options such as Friends, Groups, Events and more. It shows users profiles of people attending upcoming events, people who live nearby, and people who the user works with.
