Snapchat has moved ahead of the social media giant by making its features available now.

According to Zuckerberg, Facebook's future prospects focus on augmented reality based on technology that overlays digital imagery onto the real world like Snapchat's signature camera filters.

Augmented Reality Studio: Facebook is opening up its Augmented Reality platform for developers so that they can make maximum use of Facebook's computing power.

"For those of you who have watched us roll out cameras across all our apps and have asked what we're doing, that was act one". Frames Studio lets users design frames that can be used either with profile pictures or in the new Facebook camera. Facebook added special effects cameras to its core apps like Facebook, Instagram, and Messenger.
