It's an interesting and fun feature to be fair to the firm, but Facebook Stories is still of dubious relevance at this stage.

Add 3D drawings will be possible before or during video recording.

"We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them", said John Barnett, a Camera Product Manager in Facebook. Additionally, Facebook Stories will allow users to create doodles that can intelligently identify what's in the camera frame and virtually interact with them even as users move the camera.

According to Nye County, Nevada Sheriff Sharon Wehrly, Bell was found dead Friday in his home in Pahrump, Nevada. An autopsy is scheduled for next week to determine the cause of death, Sharon Wehrly, Nye County Sheriff said.

The report also pointed out that AR drawing will be known as "3D drawing" and will roll out for Facebook users in coming weeks. Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same. 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. Facebook had its own version previously, which had the same effect as Boomerang, except it had some bugs.

Facebook has been pushing its Stories tool aggressively, despite a muted response from users. The social media company is now testing different ways to encourage more people into its Stories.

Facebook, which is in crisis mode over its data collection and sharing with third-parties, has been trying to legitimize Stories on its social network. The company established brand partnerships for Facebook Stories in October previous year and has also considered letting users create stories from the desktop website in the hopes of attracting more engagement.
