Facebook Stories adds AR drawing and Boomerang

Watch: Key moments from day 2 of Mark Zuckerberg's Congress grilling Facebook Stories adds AR drawing and Boomerang

Facebook's AR drawing tool allows users to create 3D drawings that will hold their place in the room, regardless of where the camera moves.

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

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. Facebook has warned though that the feature isn't ideal 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.

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

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. "That has prompted the social network to make Stories available to brands, to merge it with Messenger Day (yet another Snapchat-like feature) and to mull over the possibility of allowing users to create Stories on PC".

"We are building a new data portability tool".

In addition to the new 3D feature, Facebook has also rolled out an option to create and share boomerangs just like Instagram.

Facebook is adding some much-needed features to its Stories feature. The company established brand partnerships for Facebook Stories in October past year and has also considered letting users create stories from the desktop website in the hopes of attracting more engagement.

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".
