Facebook adds Snapchat-like camera features to main mobile app

Facebook adds Snapchat-like camera features to main mobile app

After bringing Snapchat Stories to Instagram and Facebook Messenger (no Facebook did not buy Snapchat yet), the company is now bringing the "Stories" features to the Facebook camera (aren't you bored already!). Facebook is adding more Snapchat-like features to its app. This allows you to share photos and videos with each other in direct response to the stories you are trading with each other. Facebook has partnered with several films like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to create fun masks for your face.

Apart from this story feature, Facebook also introduced a new in-app camera having multiple filters for a photograph, something similar to Instagram. Once they're done decorating, people can add them to their story, share it to the news feed or direct-message it to a friend.

The app has a new camera feature on the left corner screen of your News Feed. Once the discussion on particular story ends, the content will disappear from Direct.

The features will be available on both iOS and Android.

Instagram Stories has proven extremely popular since its arrival previous year, and Mark Zuckerberg won't mind that all of his company's apps are based around the same core feature, as long as Facebook Stories opens up new revenue opportunities.

Open up the Facebook app on your smartphone today (Tuesday) and you'll probably notice something a little different. Once you're on the camera screen, you can snap a photo or a video and play around with it using Facebook's camera features that include filters and screens.

With this new update, users will see rounded profile pictures at the top of their Facebook application. Just like Instagram stories, Facebook stories will expire after 24 hours, showing up in the top of your followers feeds at the top. Adding one more such feather to its hat Facebook introduces the stories on its platform.

According to a promotional video launching the features Facebook has created the new camera feature because "sometimes there are just no words so maybe we should let our cameras do more of the talking".
