How to watch Facebook's F8 2017 keynote live stream

Attendees arrive at Facebook's annual F8 developer conference, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in San Jose, Calif.

"We're going to make the camera the first mainstream augmented reality platform", Zuckerberg said.

The augmented reality that facebook is working on will have combined elements of both physical and digital world and will take few more years. Frame Studio and AR Studio are new tools for developers to build masks, animations and more. Your friend will be able to leave an augmented reality sticky note on the menu, letting you know which menu item is the best or which one's the worst when you hold your camera up to it.

"Over time, I think this is going to be a really important technology that changes how we use our phones", Zuckerberg predicted. On Tuesday, just around the same time Zuckerberg was taking the stage at F8, Snapchat announced its own new features that allow users to add 3-D cartoon objects into pictures and images. That said, this Camera Effects platform, should it succeed in attracting a bunch of users, will go down as a savvy move. This proposal comes after the social media website has faced sharp criticism for not doing enough to stop the flow of fake news on its platform during the past US presidential election.

Snapchat beat Facebook in realizing the smartphone camera could do more than document memories.

Snap representatives did not immediately respond to an email for comment on Tuesday afternoon. He said that is something people will have to get used to seeing. "This will give people a chance to experience augmented reality in a way that isn't so scary or off-putting". Facebook could use an augmented reality filter to fill the scene with confetti or morph the bar into an aquarium or any other setting corresponding with the team's mascot. But advances in image and object recognition, along with the ubiquity of smartphone cameras, "has put us on the course to bring augmented reality", Kirkpatrick said in an interview. He also expressed a desire to turn Messenger into the "yellow pages of messaging".

That was in August: by March, when Snapchat went public, Facebook had added Stories features to WhatsApp, Messenger, and its main Facebook product. They're like Facebook Groups for developers, helping connect people living in the same area and offering educational options like special classes from Udacity. The idea is simplify what might otherwise require a flurry of texts and sharing of links.

The conference comes in the week that Facebook has been under fire for hosting a video of the apparent killing of 74-year-old grandfather Robert Godwin in Cleveland on Sunday. That raised questions about the company's ability to monitor gruesome material on its site.
