Facebook just launched its rocking new feature ‘Facebook Masks’ just in time for Halloween
Facebook fans rejoice because Facebook just made life more interesting for you. The social network has just rolled out its answer to snap chat lenses and has called it Facebook MASKS. Now you can make your Halloween all the more interesting with awesome ghoulie.
The social network will start adding the feature to live streaming services and will be available with the Facebook app as well. It will also be available on ‘Facebook Mentions’ for verified users.
1 Now Animate Your Live Videos with Masks
Facebook Masks will enable you to animate overlays to live videos. The filters are similar to MSQRD (face tracking which of course also belongs to Facebook.
The feature allows you to add animated overlays to your live videos. The filters themselves are pretty similar to what you would find in MSQRD — the face-tracking and 3D face-placement app that Facebook acquired in March.
2 Rock Your Halloween with Ghoulie Masks
Similar to Snapchat Facebook will keep swapping different styles. The initial set of masks will be none other than HALLOWEEN masks just in time to rock your celebration on Facebook. Facebook had experimented with masks in Brazil and live video sharing on MSQRD.
3 Masks Available for iOS First, Then Android Soon After
As of now Facebook Masks will be rolled out for iOS users in UK, New Zealand and USA so that’s one big benefit for apple users. Android users will have to be a bit more patient when the feature will be made available soon. After the initial rollout Masks will be soon made available in several countries.
4 Limited Halloween Emojis
Along with Masks Facebook is also launching a limited edition reaction to its website and apps with a Halloween theme. The new reactions will replace the standard emojis like ‘love’ or ‘haha” for Halloween icons like ghosts and pumpkins.
