Facebook has just announced a new set of effects is now available for Messenger users. The new camera integrated in both the Android and iOS apps is now much faster and easier to use with special effects and art.
According to Facebook, the new camera feature will replace the keyboard. Now you will see the shutter button positioned at the center bottom of the screen, along with a palette icon to the right.
If you tap on it, it will take a picture, but if you long press it will record a video. This functionality isn't something new, as the camera worked the same in the previous versions of Messenger.
Facebook also introduced a place where you can find new art and special effects. Among them, there's the 3D masks special effects, which make it very funny and easy to apply an artistic filter to the full screen photo.
Basically, you can take a selfie and turn the picture into whatever you think it's funny by simply applying one of the filters available.
