Facebook is all set to launch new features in its in-app camera. These new features include selfie masks and filters, similar to its rival – Snapchat. It appears to be another attempt by Facebook to out-do its rival. Facebook recently incorporated Snapchat’s key feature in Instagram. This new feature called ‘Stories’ lets users share ephemeral photos and videos that disappear automatically after 24 hours.
Now with the Snapchat-like features in its in-app camera, Facebook aims at providing its users with fast and flexible visual sharing. The social-media giant is in the process of testing these new features. Once integrated, users will be able to access the ‘New Camera’ from the top-left corner of the main app or by just swiping to the right of the News Feed. Among other features that are being tested by Facebook, users will soon be able to send photos and videos as a direct message to any number of Facebook friends.
