"Starting today, we are introducing a new experience called Stories, connecting Messenger Day and Facebook Stories".

Facebook is also bringing Instagram's Boomerang feature to Stories. In the coming days, you will be able to smartly use the Stories section of Facebook as you would be able to explore more of Facebook's Stories features through your mobile app.

The new feature is named as 3D drawing and it allows a user to create various shapes and also write text on the videos shot by the Facebook camera before or at the time of video recording.

Facebook is leveling up its Stories feature.

According to sources, the social media giant is going to add attractive AR doodles along with Instagram's Boomerang GIFs to the stories through the Camera button just like Instagram.

Coleman: Bale Would Only Leave Madrid For Another Giant Club
All the talk that has been generated in the last three days is too much. "Anyone who says it was a robbery, I really don't agree". Several other clubs are said to have been deterred by Bale's age but could be tempted should he lower his wage demands.


3D drawing on Facebook could be the future of AR as it could simplify the process of newbies and people with little idea of how these things work.

AR allows users to doodle on the real world, ie draw their own AR images in real life. With the availability of the AR-based 3D drawing feature clear signifies that a major push is being given to the Stories and it is said to help increase the popularity of stories and drive user engagement.

For the uninformed, Boomerang is a feature that loops videos back and forwards (hence the name) and have proven very popular with users of Instagram. The company established brand partnerships for Facebook Stories in October a year ago and has also considered letting users create stories from the desktop website in the hopes of attracting more engagement. Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same.

If we talk about this particular Stories feature on Facebook, it has not been successful as Instagram or Snapchat.
