Facebook will now integrate AR technology in its platform

The Camera Effects platform is created to be compatible with future augmented reality hardware, such as eyeglasses but in the meantime the effects will be available inside Facebook's Camera feature on smartphones.

And now you can use this new technology too.

He stressed that AR-powered camera effects would change the way people interact with friends on the social network. He also said that Facebook isn't anxious about "no innovation" allegations and defended copying Snapchat by saying that it was the ground work for Facebook's Camera Effects Platform for developers. "We see the beginning of a new platform, we're going to make the camera the first mainstream AR platform", announced Zuckerberg.

"For those of you who have watched us roll out cameras across all our apps and have asked what we're doing, that was act one".

Back in October, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave us a live Oculus Rift demo.

Facebook has unveiled a range of new services at its annual F8 developers conference, including new ways to find businesses on Messenger, Facebook Spaces to meet friends in virtual reality and augmented reality features for its recently added in-app camera.

While Snapchat's offering to developers is limited to geofilters, Facebook has invited its worldwide developer community to use its tools to create geofilters, filters, masks, etc. Facebook's new virtual reality app will make it feel like you're in the same room as friends, or on the same beach, garden or park - the new VR app can transport your avatar anywhere.

You can draw in the air with a virtual marker to create anything you can dream up, from a decorative hat to a handmade tic-tac-toe board. Recently the company has launched stories on its platform.

Facebook isn't stopping at virtual worlds.

Since the Messenger Platform debuted a year ago, the ecosystem has more than 1.2 billion people, 100,000 developers and 100,000 monthly active bots, and two billion messages are sent between people and businesses on Messenger every month.

People can now add in a bot directly in a group thread and share the conversation and experience.
