As Facebook ramps up competition with the likes of Snapchat and Instagram, we can likely expect greater integration with AR in future updates.

Add 3D drawings will be possible before or during video recording.

In addition to the new 3D feature, Facebook has also rolled out an option to create and share boomerangs just like Instagram. 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. As per some reports from the web, the new feature is said to be the worst privacy scandal till date, and Facebook is regularly working on the stories to make it a robust feature available for the users.

For optimal effect, it only wraps drawings around objects if it is confident about the object that it has detected. 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 chances of proper detection depend on the amount of information that the camera captures for an object, which in turn depends on the light available in the environment as pointed in the report.

Now, the Stories section on Facebook is getting boost as the giant is going to add AR doodles and Boomerange GIFs to the stories.

The stories in Facebook soon it will be possible to draw 3D pictures using the tool of augmented reality.

For the uninformed, Boomerang is a feature that loops videos back and forwards (hence the name) and have proven very popular with users of Instagram. Given that it has more users than Snapchat, the pioneer of vanishing posts, Facebook will have an even harder time convincing the people to use its platform and cross-post to Instagram instead.

Facebook has been pushing its Stories tool aggressively, despite a muted response from users.
