Facebook Introduces New Camera and Some Christmas-Themed Effect Effects in Its Messenger

Whether it is a festive season or increasing demand of visual messaging, only time will tell but as per Facebook the new effects feature will be “faster, simpler and more fun” as it has upgraded its camera. The camera button can be seen at the bottom of your screen, right in the center. You will see the messenger button at the same time when you open the app and not when you open a particular window, which is the main difference.

Apart from thousands of stickers and frames the main effect is AR effects or in other words the 3D masks effect. This effect will overlay the animated content onto the videos.

In a statement, Facebook said, “Over 2.5 billion Emojis, photos, stickers, and videos are sent every day on Messenger. In some ways, the camera is now replacing the keyboard.”

All you need to do is to wait for an update from Facebook Messenger which should be arriving soon on your Android and iOS enabled devices.
