Facebook Stories adds funky AR drawing and Instagram's Boomerang

Additionally, Facebook Stories will allow users to create doodles that can intelligently identify what's in the camera frame and virtually interact with them even as users move the camera.

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.

Now users can make use of Instagram's Boomerang feature when capturing videos via Facebook's in-app camera.

Facebook users can access this feature by tapping the camera icon, just as they would when taking a regular photo or video. Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same.

Previously, the company revealed its AR effects back at F8 previous year. The platform also rolled out support for industry standard glTF 2.0 in February this year, allowing developers to create richer and higher-quality 3D content for the platform.

Ordinance likely if Supreme Court rejects Centre's SC/ST case review plea
It has been alleged that the "dilution" in the Act would spike violence against Dalits. "The SC/ST act is a special act. They might not know what is in the order or they may have been misled with people having vested interest".

Facebook has also confirmed the fact that the Boomerang will be replacing the looping GIF creation in the Facebook camera; the Boomerang feature, however, is already available on Instagram.

"We are building a new data portability tool".

The details of this feature are yet to be finalized and Instagram did not go into any detail at the moment. Facebook Stories has not been able to duplicate that success yet, but the company likely hopes that integrating the established Boomerang brand will change this.

Instagram and Snapchat offer ways to draw on top of videos, but not like this.

Facebook is adding some much-needed features to its Stories feature.
