Facebook announces its AR Camera Effects Platform

Zuckerberg noted that each year, Facebook invited developers to gather and gain insight into what the social media giant had up its sleeve.

At the F8 developer conference, Zuckerberg said that the first step that made sense was to release products that people already knew about, which sounded like a way to justify the copying. Zuckerberg said the company is making the "first mainstream augmented reality platform out of the camera", called "Act 2".

Facebook is calling developers to apply for access to the closed beta of the platform's AR Studio tool.

Frames Studio is an online creative editor, now available globally, that allows people to design frames that can be used either as profile picture frames or in the new Facebook camera.

Speaking at the developers event in San Jose, California, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced Facebook's new Camera Effects Platform, which is created to giving developers the power to build AR tools. Facebook added special effects cameras to its core apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger.

Zuckerberg believes that his recent push to add camera features to Facebook's suite of smartphone apps will help the company popularise AR.

Zuckerberg said new phone-based applications might include creating a three-dimensional scene from a single two-dimensional photo or splattering the walls of your house with colorful (virtual) art.

'Today, we're introducing a new VR app where you hang out with friends in a fun, interactive virtual environment as if you were in the same room'. However, he also has predicted that the augmented-reality platform will soon be incorporated into eyeglasses as well. It has launched Facebook Spaces for Oculus Rift VR users.

Mike Schroepfer, Facebook's chief technology officer, gave another example: "Let's say I took a wonderful vacation photo and a windsurfer rudely interrupted my view".

Since the Messenger Platform debuted a year ago, the ecosystem has more than 1.2 billion people, 100,000 developers and 100,000 monthly active bots, and two billion messages are sent between people and businesses on Messenger every month.
