With Halloween approaching, Facebook has got some unique Halloween features for users on Messenger that work with visual effects. To be exact, users can enjoy augmented reality filters on Messenger, with which they can virtually dress up for Halloween.
Video calls on Messenger can be enjoyed with a 360-degree Halloween-themed background, giving off a realistically frightening look. Other than that, a bunch of Halloween stickers will also be available.
The 360-degree background was already a feature for Messenger video calls and the AR features have been available for some time too.
All the new Halloween additions to Facebook Messenger are likely to receive more attention and usage, as more and more people have been using Messenger lately due to the Coronavirus lockdowns. Data reveals that the use of group video chats has increased by 10 times this year.
The new Halloween AR features are especially great for those who aren’t dressing up for the event this year or have nowhere to go. They can totally save a lot of time and effort while getting a realistic looking Halloween makeover just by one tap on their phone screen.
