Facebook is now going to add Instagram’s Boomerang feature in its Facebook Stories feature allowing users to create amazing GIFs and AR Drawing.
Facebook has also added AR drawings to the Stories section form where users can draw doodles in 3D. It’ll enable you to doodle and scribble on your screen before or while you’re recording and see what your augmented reality graffiti looks like on various surfaces as you move your phone around. This AR feature is able to understand surfaces like walls and tables then add to them when you draw.

According to TechCrunch, Facebook’s tech allows your drawings to wrap around objects like mailboxes and tables in the real world. However, its implementation is still far from perfect, and it can only adapt to the contours of an object when it’s in optimal lighting conditions and the tech is absolutely sure what it’s looking at. As for Boomerang, TC says the beloved Instagram feature could replace Camera’s looping GIF-maker that Facebook launched some time ago, since that one’s not quite as polished.
