Facebook announced Thursday that group effects are now available on Messenger video calls and Messenger rooms, and will arrive on Instagram soon.
Group Effects are new AR experiences that can empower everyone on a video call at the same time, allowing for a more fun and immersive way to connect with friends and family.
With Group Effects, you can now play multiplayer interactions with your friends, making video calling a shared experience.
“You’ll be able to choose from a library of over 70 group effects, ranging from a game where you compete to build the best burger to an effect with a cute orange cat that pops up on everyone’s screens,” Facebook said. in a press release.
At the end of this month, Facebook will expand access to the new “Spark AR Multipeer” API to allow more creators and developers to create group effects.
With this, all creators and developers can create dynamic real-time interactive effects for a wider audience and transform the way people experience video calling.
Group effects also allow creators to bring their creative ideas to the Messenger video calling experience.
So far, many AR effects have been a solo experience, like scaling up a photo or video for stories or reels, Facebook said.
