Instagram had recently copied the Snapchat to add the signature Stories feature, now it is Facebook that has adopted the same.

Facebook's new feature allows users to add 3D drawings to videos. As Facebook ramps up competition with the likes of Snapchat and Instagram, we can likely expect greater integration with AR in future updates.

The AR technology should also be able to detect objects from surfaces.

According to a report by Elite Daily, John Barnett, Facebook Camera Product Manager added, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them". It will not work, for example, in low light conditions and if the software is unsure of the object.

Facebook is calling its AR drawing feature "3D drawing", and it will let users doodle on images they capture using Facebook Camera while clicking or after.

Delta Air Lines (NYSE:DAL) PT Raised to $100.00
Wall Street experts also assign a $73 price target on Delta Air Lines, Inc ., pointing towards a 37.79% rally from current levels. State of New Jersey Common Pension Fund D increased its stake in shares of Delta Air Lines by 66.7% in the second quarter.


Facebook has launched two new camera modes for its Stories feature. Users will then be able to wrap around their scribbles around the objects, but the technology is still far from ideal. Facebook had its own version previously, which had the same effect as Boomerang, except it had some bugs.

Such a tool would make it easier for people to move to competing photo social networks, much like Facebook's own Download Your Information tool, which has been touted as a way to #DeleteFacebook. Boomerang in case you are not an Instagram user, is a tool that enables you to take animated back and forth clips. Facebook Stories has not been able to duplicate that success yet, but the company likely hopes that integrating the established Boomerang brand will change this.

For those unfamiliar, Facebook Stories allows you to post pictures and videos for other users to view.

Apart from the new features, Facebook is also making the panel larger and adding a camera window in the status composer.
