In the coming weeks, users will be able to draw on pictures they are taking through its camera, a feature that is being called, "3D drawing". Facebook has warned though that the feature isn't ideal yet, and the quality of the AR experience will depend on the lighting while capturing images as well as how well the contours of the subject are captured.

The second tool launched by the social media behemoth is Boomerang.

Facebook is leveling up its Stories feature. People can soon draw scribbles before or during recording and then move the camera around to see the markings stay in place. According to the report, the camera now understands and detects the objects and surfaces in the room including walls and tables to create a 3D spec to wrap the drawing on them.

The stories archived by the users and messages exchange will they be allowed to be downloaded or not, is yet to be disclosed.
