Facebook Stories adds AR drawing and Boomerang

Apple iMac Pro rear

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

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 users can access this feature by tapping the camera icon, just as they would when taking a regular photo or video.

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". Facebook has warned though that the feature isn't flawless yet, and the quality of the AR experience will depend on the lighting while capturing images as well as how well the contours of the subject are captured. Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same. If you are not familiar with 3D drawing then this allows you to scribble a message or a graffiti and then move the camera around to see that the markings or the elements of the graffiti stay in place as the camera moves.

Previously, the company revealed its AR effects back at F8 a year ago.

This is what Engadget, another tech news site has to say: "Unlike Instagram's Snapchat clone, which has more users than Snapchat itself, Facebook's hasn't been as successful".

In addition to 3D AR drawings, Facebook stories can now be created with Instagram's popular Boomerang feature. The AR tool is a feature that neither Instagram or Snapchat now offer.

It's an interesting and fun feature to be fair to the firm, but Facebook Stories is still of dubious relevance at this stage. As Facebook ramps up competition with the likes of Snapchat and Instagram, we can likely expect greater integration with AR in future updates.
