Social Media giant Facebook wants you express yourself beyond simply chatting when it comes to Facebook Messenger.
The company has launched a native camera, which allows you to apply Snapchat-like filters, emojis, stickers, and other artwork to any photo or video you want.
The app now includes more artistic expression and non-verbal communication, which is why Facebook has updated its app to make sending photos and video faster “and more fun.”
The home screen of Messenger has been redesigned, with the camera shutter button in the bottom center. All you have to do is tap it to easily capture a moment or long press to record a video.
Then things get interesting — you can apply filters, artwork, and effects similar to Snapchat and Instagram Stories.
Simply type in a keyword, and the app will display relevant images that can be added to photos and videos.
However, you are limited to one effect and frame per photo and video.
All of the art and special effects are targeted based on your geography and the language your phone is set to.
