The stories in Facebook soon it will be possible to draw 3D pictures using the tool of augmented reality. The stories archived by the users and messages exchange will they be allowed to be downloaded or not, is yet to be disclosed.

With a device's camera, users will be able to create 3D drawings in the world around them, which come to life through AR. The company confirmed to TechCrunch that the features would start rolling out to users worldwide in the coming weeks.

With AR drawing, you can scribble on the world around you, then move your camera and see the markings stay in place. The platform also rolled out support for industry standard glTF 2.0 in February this year, allowing developers to create richer and higher-quality 3D content for the platform. According to the report, the camera now understands and detects the objects and surfaces in the room including walls and tables to create a 3D spec to wrap the drawing on them. "Currently, it only does that when it's confident about the object recognition, such as in optimal light conditions", Techcrunch writes.

Facebook is also bringing Instagram's Boomerang feature to Stories. One noticeable and annoying flaw was that the GIFs return to the beginning once they end. 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. Given that it has more users than Snapchat, the pioneer of vanishing posts, Facebook will have an even harder time convincing the people to use its platform and cross-post to Instagram instead. Facebook also launched AR tracker target experiences which would trigger from QR codes or real-world posters.
