One of the biggest reasons behind Facebook’s spectacular growth is that the social networking giant is always at work to improve its services and keeps offering users new features to try.
In a latest along the lines, Facebook has added new camera features to Messenger that can make an infinite number of overlaid graphics on your photos and videos. Wait, there’s more fun; also anything you type can be altered into quirky and crazy fonts that you can post on your images or videos.
Interestingly, Messenger can even offer up filters with related art if it understands the meaning of your text in any of 15 different popular languages.
“A lot more conversations are starting from photos. We wanted to make sure we could be a first-class citizen when it comes to visual messaging, and naturally, for that, you need a good camera,” Facebook’s head of Messenger, David Marcus, told TechCrunch.
If you thought that is it, hang on. Messenger’s also got augmented reality selfie lenses, holiday-themed masks, props to paste on, Prisma-esque style transfers, influencer-suggested filters and art to buzz your friend for a cup of coffee or show them what’s keeping you busy.
According to Jennifer Whitley, Creative Director, Facebook Messenger, “We work with creators all over the world for people all over the world. One-third of our library is created for specific regions and demographics.”
The new features are rolling out to all users today and tomorrow on iOS and Android, and the holiday effects should be available for everyone by December 21st.
