Facebook Stories to get AR drawings and Boomerangs in the near future

That is exactly what a feature like Stories has done to companies like Snapchat, Instagram, WhatsApp and now Facebook. The addition of these extra creativity options could be an attempt to make the Facebook camera, a more popular place for content creators while trying to compete with the competition.

The company has also added AR drawings to the Stories section allowing users to draw doodles in 3D. "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them" says Barnett, per TechCrunch.

The second new feature announced for Facebook Stories - Boomerang - is an evolution of the GIF-creating feature available for a while.

For optimal effect, it only wraps drawings around objects if it is confident about the object that it has detected.

It's an interesting and fun feature to be fair to the firm, but Facebook Stories is still of dubious relevance at this stage. One noticeable and annoying flaw was that the GIFs return to the beginning once they end. It seems like the social media giant is facing issues getting people to use the feature on its platform. Instagram's Stories feature is a Snapchat clone, but sees much higher user engagement, according to Engadget. "Now, it's quicker and easier to capture and share moments as they happen with the people you care about most!" . It is also making users post to Stories by default when they use Facebook Camera. This also means that flash photography is not supported by the new feature, on account of it harshly affecting the lighting captured in the image.

The news comes after Instagram's parent company Facebook's Cambridge Analytica data scandal due to which Instagram earlier cut off the Application program interface (API) access for some developers and limited on how often others can use its API to collect data on Instagram users.
