With the availability of the AR-based 3D drawing feature clear signifies that a major push is being given to the Stories and it is said to help increase the popularity of stories and drive user engagement. 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.

In the coming weeks, users will be able to draw on pictures they are taking through its camera, a feature that is being called, "3D drawing".

The company has only added pastel gradient colours as part of the feature and it could add additional brushes in the future. Further, the reports from web suggest that the technology behind the AR feature can also sense corners and objects in space, and can also detect walls and tables. The latest is the addition of Instagram Boomerang GIF with Facebook Camera that lets the user draw with abandon. One noticeable and annoying flaw was that the GIFs return to the beginning once they end.
