The platform will also allow you to add video effects in you Stories that match the beat of songs. If you’ve ever wanted to be a music video producer, here’s your chance.
Facebook Messenger Gets Camera Upgrades
Facebook has added three new camera tools to Messenger. You’re probably familiar with Boomerang, but you may be less familiar with one of the other features, which is a background blur effect that focuses on users’ faces to take perfect selfies. The final effect is an AR (Augmented Reality) effect that overlays stickers into reality. Facebook hopes that these new changes on Messenger will help users become more active on the app besides just using its chat functionality.
Twitter Lets You Pick How You Want Your Feed
Twitter’s new Sparkle button will let you opt out of the platform’s algorithm-based feed and instead view tweets in chronological order. The feature is rolling out on iOS first and is slated to come to Android devices at a later date. You will notice that the new Sparkle button is in the top right of the app where the compose button used to be and can be activated with a simple tap. Twitter also states that whichever setting each user prefers will eventually become their default setting.
