It's an interesting and fun feature to be fair to the firm, but Facebook Stories is still of dubious relevance at this stage. Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same. 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. Additionally, Facebook Stories will allow users to create doodles that can intelligently identify what's in the camera frame and virtually interact with them even as users move the camera.

The report also pointed out that AR drawing will be known as "3D drawing" and will roll out for Facebook users in coming weeks.

Facebook says that its AR technology in the app's camera is able to detect surfaces like walls and tables.

Facebook has also confirmed the fact that the Boomerang will be replacing the looping GIF creation in the Facebook camera; the Boomerang feature, however, is already available on Instagram.

Facebook is adding some much-needed features to its Stories feature. The tech seems to work fine, but it will still depend on the environment and the current lighting conditions. Facebook says Boomerang is now rolling out to all users. The addition of these extra creativity options could be an attempt to make the Facebook camera, a more popular place for content creators while trying to compete with the competition.
