Facebook's Messenger app has unveiled a brand new camera equipped with a slew of novel features.
(CCM) — On Thursday, Messenger's Product Manager, Peter Martinazzi, announced via blog post that the platform would be rolling out a new native camera that is fully stocked with big benefits. Described by the company as a "faster and easier-to-use camera," the feature is designed to facilitate the sharing of special moments instantaneously. Not only is the camera now accessible from every one of the app's screens, but Messenger has also introduced 3D masks as well as thousands of stickers, frames, masks, and effects for the reboot. And, although social media platforms have been scrambling to incorporate video into their interfaces, Messenger has also unveiled a support for creative text that allows users to add art and stickers to written words. The new camera is set to roll out globally "over the coming days," according to the company.
Messenger has been steadily updating its service in an effort to stay ahead of the curve in the ever-evolving industry of social networks. In November, it unveiled support for in-app games, and in October, it introduced personal shoppers powered by AI.
