AR tops the list when we debate on what is the next big thing after smartphone. While we can argue whether some sort of AR device like Microsoft Hololense can replace today’s smartphone, there is absolutely no room for argument that AR would be a huge success on mobile devices. Facebook now joins the party with the tech giants like Microsoft, Google, Apple and of course, Snapchat who is the trailblazer when it comes implementing AR(sort of) on social media.
According to reports Facebook is currently testing AR stickers on Facebook Messenger. An image suggesting the same surfaced online yesterday.
This by the looks of it is exactly like what we see on other platforms. Anyways, this is an interesting move from the company and is a much-needed one. Now whether Facebook mix-and-match AR and their existing VR platform Oculus or they keep improving them separately would be interesting to watch.
