Taking Pictures

The camera is just a swipe away and the shutter button now lives right at the bottom of the display. This makes it easy to snap a shot. Now, you can add 3D masks as well as special effects to the image as well. There’s a palette button next to the shutter button that launches a blank canvas to let you add stickers and other effects.

Share Easily

Facebook Messenger now allows you to pick friends first and then shoot. You can also add different Snapchat-style 3D selfie masks and filters to make your images look like paintings and environmental effects.

The new feature aims at getting Facebook users to share more pictures and videos with one another on the app. This latest attempt is to clone the success of Snapchat as the features are familiar with its rival. These new features are rolling out to all users on iOS and Android.
