Facebook To Make The Camera Its Augmented Reality Platform

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:31

Facebook will depend on an inventory of external developers to contribute towards this new platform.

The app is in beta and allows users to create an avatar to live message and interact in a VR Hangout through Facebook Messenger.

During his keynote kickoff for F8 yesterday, Zuckerberg (pictured above) once again emphasized his belief that Facebook in all its incarnations will help "bring people closer together" and overcome the current polarization in society. Wood said that Facebook is moving away from virtual reality on its Oculus Rift platform and toward augmented reality on your phone, something its competitor Snapchat is already doing.

Starting with "basic effects", Zuckerberg showed images of Snapchat-style photo overlays like facemasks, but said that as an open platform users will be able to create their own and "instead of having 10 to 20 options to choose from, you're going to have thousands".

Facebook has named its first AR Studio beta partners as Electronic Arts' Mass Effect: Andromeda, GIPHY, Manchester United, Nike, Real Madrid, TripIt, and Warner Bros' Justice League.

The Stories feature in the Facebook app was just the first step, Zuck said, adding that Facebook has some big plans for the AR functionality. Frames Studio is an online creative editor, available globally, that allows people to design frames that can be used either as profile picture frames or in the new Facebook camera.
