Facebook Stories will now add Instagram's Boomerang feature and AR drawings

Instagram 3D drawing. Facebook

The 3D drawing feature, as what the company calls it, allows users make doodles on the screen and combine the drawings with the real world. This is not the first time that Facebook is experimenting with AR.

The report also pointed out that AR drawing will be known as "3D drawing" and will roll out for Facebook users in coming weeks.

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. This, in turn, allows a user to wrap his/her art on the objects which are visible in the camera feed. Speaking about the feature to TechCrunch, John Barnett, a Facebook Camera Product Manager, said, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them". 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. Techcrunch, the tech portal, posted a promo video on 3D drawings (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYqe3smoois) on YouTube. It launched its suite of AR effects and developer kits for various applications at the F8 conference in April a year ago.
