Facebook Messenger adds Snapchat-style AR objects

The technology builds on Facebook's existing AR features, like the ability to add filters and masks to your face in a selfie, and it's created to make Messenger more interactive by leveraging the increasingly sophisticated computer vision capabilities of smartphones.

Facebook Inc.is attempted to expand its presence in the burgeoning augmented reality space with the public launch of AR Studio, a platform based on code it acquired from MSQRD Inc.

Facebook is rolling out a new feature for Messenger that lets you drop 3D objects into your surroundings, using the built-in camera tool, making it yet another popular app to incorporate AR features - apart from Snapchat. It is been copied from the Snapchat's AR-based objects and turned out in the form of the tool, World Effects on Facebook Messenger.

Unlike placing a regular sticker or emoji on your pictures, World Lenses uses 3D objects on the image.

Moreover, you can add a 3D heart floating over someone's head and then try panning your phone's camera from side to side. It should be available for most users around the World now, so enjoy capturing and sharing all those shenanigans. For now, Facebook users can play around with effects like hearts, arrow and robot in addition to word bubbles like "love", "bae", "heart" and "miss you".

AR Studio is claimed to be a platform that "empowers creators to connect art with data to bring augmented reality into everyday life through the Facebook camera". To add a World Effect, open the Messenger Camera (from your inbox or from inside an existing conversation by tapping the camera icon), and then scroll to choose from the camera effects. Just these recent months, Facebook has implemented messaging Streaks, Instagram Live filters, and a standalone Instagram Direct messaging app. The company announced that the app now supports higher-resolution images than before.
