3D camera effects to Messenger
Today marks the first day of F8 2017, our annual event where developers come together to explore the future of technology. More than 4,000 people attended the event at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, and millions watched the keynote via Facebook Live.
Mark Zuckerberg opened the conference with a keynote about how the camera is the first mainstream augmented reality platform. People are already using the cameras on their phones to write text on images, add digital objects and modify existing things with face filters and style transfers. That’s why today we announced the Camera Effects Platform, giving developers the power to build AR tools for the camera and bring people together in new ways.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg has spoken of his past belief that virtual reality is the next social platform, and today the first fruits of that idea have appeared.
The tech giant revealed Facebook Spaces, a VR app that enables up to four Facebook friends to meet in VR and interact with one another as if they were in the same room.
Users with the Oculus Rift can interact, draw and play games with their friends having created a digital avatar of themselves, as well as bring in other without access to VR via video calling.
The app is only in beta for now, but it is available to everyone for free on the Oculus Store.
