With the availability of the AR-based 3D drawing feature clear signifies that a major push is being given to the Stories and it is said to help increase the popularity of stories and drive user engagement. According to the report, the camera now understands and detects the objects and surfaces in the room including walls and tables to create a 3D spec to wrap the drawing on them.

Myanmar says it's repatriated first Rohingya family since exodus
Myanmar's government has confirmed it has repatriated the first Rohingya family after more than 700,000 fled Bangladesh . Most Burmese consider the Rohingya as unwanted immigrants from Bangladesh, and the army refers to them as "Bengalis".

Boomerang is smoother in this regard, and so it is now coming to the Facebook Camera to replace the social media's own looping tech. Facebook's Instagram will soon be allowing the users to download their data.

The social media platform said it will reward people with first-hand knowledge and proof of cases where a Facebook platform app collects and transfers people's data to another party to be sold, stolen or used for scams or political influence. The social media company is now testing different ways to encourage more people into its Stories. However, the GIFs created using the earlier tool restarted from the beginning, creating a slightly jarring effect; with the new tool, which has seen huge success on photo sharing platform Instagram, users can now create seamless GIFs on Facebook Stories as well. 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. "Now, it's quicker and easier to capture and share moments as they happen with the people you care about most!" . The stories archived by the users and messages exchange will they be allowed to be downloaded or not, is yet to be disclosed.
