Facebook will soon introduce Snapchat-like filters to improvise its live video platform. On Thursday at VidCon , Facebook announced that people using the face filters on the MSQRD app will be able to go live on Facebook directly from within the app.
In March Facebook acquired MSQRD, which is a “masquerade” face-tracking and 3D face-placement app. Since then, they have been working to build their imaging technology to Live, Fidji Simo, Facebook’s director of product, said at VidCon.
The new feature will start rolling out globally on iOS devices in the next upcoming weeks.
Facebook Live will also roll out new features in the coming weeks. One allows you to invite a friend to drop in while conducting a live stream. Facebook users will be able to schedule a live broadcast and lobby system to hangout before one starts.
