Menlo Park, based online social networking service, Facebook Inc. is developing a stand-alone camera app, similar to disappearing photo app Snapchat, to increase user engagement, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

According to the report, the app, being developed by Facebook’s “friend-sharing” team in London, is in its early stages and may never come to fruition.

The company is also planning a feature that allows a user to record video through the app to begin live streaming, the newspaper reported.

Facebook declined to comment on the report.
