Facebook or should I say Instagram is rolling out face filter feature, that’s more or less inspired by Snapchat. IG’s Face filter appears to be using MSQRD’s augmented reality technology. MSQRD is a company that Facebook acquired last year for an undisclosed amount.
From your phone’s camera, you can overlay different objects like a furry koala ears, eye classes, crown, a tiara etc. Face filter also works with Boomerang.
Aside from face filter, Instagram will also roll out creative tools in the camera like;
- Rewind, which allows you to make videos that play in reverse.
- Hashtag sticker, turn a text hashtag into a sticker.
- New eraser brush when using drawing tools, where you can erase other things you’ve drawn and play around with removing color.
