Facebook has announced a new augmented reality tool suite that its members will be able to use in messages they exchange via Messenger. “World effects” -as it characterizes them- allow the user to convert three-dimensional objects into photos and videos and use them for messages they want to send.

Technology “steps” on the existing features of augmented reality and generates a more enriched result. Facebook’s goal is to make Messenger more entertaining and remain competitive against Snapchat, so as to draw part of the younger audience.

Facebook has launched the augmented reality platform eight months ago and remains to see what other exciting developments it reserves us for the future.

World Effects

Messaging is more visual than ever, and features like photos, videos, emojis, stickers and GIFs make Messenger the best place for expressing yourself however you want. And with recent improvements – like the ability to send high resolution photos in Messenger – awesome visual messaging has a home in Messenger. It's been almost exactly a year since we introduced the powerful, native camera for Messenger and given that momentous timing, we're excited to introduce today a new feature for visual messaging — World Effects. World Effects technology enables you to drop 3D objects into your surroundings to capture and share fun moments with your family and friends. For example, add a 3D heart floating over someone's head and then try panning your phone's camera from side to side. Or use an arrow to point to an exact object or location in a panorama so your friend knows what you're referring to. Or better yet, add a new fun, celebratory robot to an otherwise every-day setting and spice things up a bit. (Hint: be sure to try the robot out with your phone's volume turned up – the robot plays three different kinds of music!)We're launching a handful of World Effects to people around the world. In addition to the heart, arrow and robot, you can also try playing around with a unicorn plus word bubbles, like “love,” “bae,” “heart” and “miss you.” 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. Pick an effect and then tap to add it to your image. We hope you enjoy using these early versions of World Effects in Messenger to bring joy and delight to your communications, especially during this holiday time of year as we re-connect with friends and family and maybe even make new connections. As always, let us know what you think!
