Facebook Adds New ‘World Effects’ Feature To Messenger
Facebook which is owned by the Mark Zuckerberg just added a new and extraordinary “World Effects” feature to its messenger application.
Messenger is increasingly used as a means of communication between people and groups of people. This application is associated with the social network giant Facebook’s personal profile and therefore it is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.
Thinking about the younger audience, the social network giant Facebook today launched Messenger Kids, a messaging application for children that allows parents to control it.
Although SMS has been around for 25 years, it has gradually been replaced by instant messaging applications such as Messenger, Whatsapp, Snapchat, and more. However, these applications are aimed at a more adult audience, and it is always dangerous for children to have free access to this type of applications.
The social network giant Facebook also says it’s starting to test video chat for certain games, so you can see your friends while you play and even start a new game from a video call.
A few months ago, the well-known image messaging and multimedia mobile application, of course, I am talking about Snapchat who announced the World Lenses, which allows you to place three-dimensional objects in the image or video. On the same day, the social network giant Facebook also announced that it would do something similar. This was somewhat restricted to some brands and now is available to all developers.
The social network giant Facebook calls it “World Effects.” They are already available on the Messenger camera and the social network giant Facebook’s own app itself (button in the upper left corner of the app).
Since April, AR Studio was available to two thousand brands and developers: for example, HBO created Game of Thrones masks. We also had effects to spread films like Wonder Woman, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 and Power Rangers. From now on, more developers will be able to use this feature.
Meanwhile, the well-known image messaging and multimedia mobile application Snapchat does not allow third parties to create masks and World Lenses, with rare exceptions – as objects in augmented reality are created by artist Jeff Koons.
