Facebook Stories to add AR doodles and Instagram's Boomerang

Popular News Tags (5599)

  • Facebook Stories is adding a new AR doodling feature and Instagram’s Boomerangs to their service, as reported by TechCrunch.

    “We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them,” John Barnett, a Facebook Camera Product Manager, told Techcrunch about the feature, which is called “3D drawing”.

    The feature allows your drawings to wrap around objects, such as mailboxes and tables, in the real world, according to TechCrunch.

    Last year Facebook announced a looping GIF-maker, which is now being replaced by Instagram’s popular Boomerang feature.

    Unlike Instagram Stories, which has quickly gained a loyal following, Facebook Stories never really took off with the average user, so it will be interesting to see if these new features can draw in a larger usage.
