The most recent update to Facebook’s flagship iOS application includes the new 3-D Touch feature for the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.

9to5Mac reported that iPhone 6s and 6s Plus users who firmly press the icon for the Facebook app on the home screen will see a quick action menu offering them the options of writing posts, uploading photos or videos or taking photos or videos.

According to 9to5Mac, status updates composed via the quick action menu contain all of the features of status updates composed within the app, including check-ins.

TechCrunch reported that while Facebook-owned Instagram already added support for 3-D Touch, other apps owned by the social network—WhatsApp, Messenger, Moments, Groups—have not done so yet.

According to TechCrunch, other apps supporting 3-D Touch include Pinterest, Jet, Twitter, Shazam, OpenTable, Confide, FireChat, Medium, Dropbox and Evernote.
