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

Facebook's new feature allows users to add 3D drawings to videos

"Facebook tells me technology understands the corners and objects in the room to create a 3D spec. Facebook could use that to detect surfaces like walls and tables to wrap the drawing onto them".

"Unlike Instagram's Snapchat clone, which has more users than Snapchat itself, Facebook's hasn't been as successful". It will not work, for example, in low light conditions and if the software is unsure of the object.

Facebook is giving stories a boost by rolling out AR doodles and Instagram's Boomerang to its camera feature suite, Tech Crunch reports.

According to John Barnett, Facebook camera product manager, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them".

Manchester City seal Premier League title after Manchester United suffer shock defeat
Jesse Lingard has grown into an important part of Jose's setup and is likely to be retained in the starting XI. United are looking to complete the league double over the Baggies for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

The new feature is set to roll out in a few weeks' time. Facebook had its own version previously, which had the same effect as Boomerang, except it had some bugs. Facebook's Instagram will soon be allowing the users to download their data.

Until now Instagram never allowed any data to be downloaded, however, there were third-party apps that allow a user to do it. Facebook has warned though that the feature isn't flawless 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. Facebook is on a mission to make Stories more exciting and therefore the new addition is seen as an effort to overcome criticism that Stories are "a rip-off of Snapchat and redundant Instagram Stories".

The company said it in a news blog post that the new bounty, which has no top limit to payments, is meant to more quickly uncover potential abuse of people's information.
