Facebook Is Starting To Copy More Features From Instagram

Facebook Is Starting To Copy More Features From Instagram

The world's largest social network will now allow users to use the Boomerang feature popularized by Instagram Stories in their Facebook Stories, the company confirmed to TechCrunch on Thursday.

The new feature is named as 3D drawing and it allows a user to create various shapes and also write text on the videos shot by the Facebook camera before or at the time of video recording.

Facebook might be having a tough time dealing with the aftermath of the Cambridge Analytica crisis, but that hasn't stopped the social media giant from working on improving its products.

The report also pointed out that AR drawing will be known as "3D drawing" and will roll out for Facebook users in coming weeks.

Google's Gmail is Being Redesigned
The sidebar, an optional tool, can show your calendar, notes from Google Keep or your tasks, depending on your preference. In essence, this will allow you to see when you're free while replying to an email about a meeting request.

"We're seeing that people enjoy drawing on top of the photos they take; 3D drawing is a new feature that uses augmented reality to let people actually draw in their world". Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same.

It's fun intended. The user can add a doodle that is not in the frame and adjust the camera position to see if the markings are in place. It launched its suite of AR effects and developer kits for various applications at the F8 conference in April previous year. Facebook Stories will now allow a user to scribble or draw shapes on videos of the world around them. An Instagram spokesperson responded to Techcrunch after the latter published an article about the lack of data portability on the service.

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

With these features added, will we finally see more Facebook users posting stories?
