Snapchat-like fil­ters com­ing to Face­book Live

Fiji Sun - - Techworld -

In a bid to ex­pand and im­prove its live video plat­form, Face­book users can soon go live from the face-swap­ping MSQRD app and utilise dif­fer­ent Snapchat-like masks and fil­ters while the video is run­ning.

Face­book first ac­quired Mas­quer­ade, the Be­laru­sian startup be­hind MSQRD back in March with the in­ten­tion to “con­tinue enhancing the Face­book video ex­pe­ri­ence,” tech­nol­ogy web­site The Verge re­ported on Fri­day.

Avail­able later this year, the fea­ture will help users in­vite a friend to “drop in” on a live broad­cast. Face­book will also let you sched­ule a live broad­cast and has built a lobby sys­tem so peo­ple can hang­out be­fore one starts.

Both fea­tures will be avail­able for own­ers of Ver­i­fied Pages but Face­book ex­pects to make them widely avail­able shortly there­after, the re­port added.
