New features now added to its Messenger App when making a video chat/call. The features include but not limited to new animated reactions, filters, effects and masks.wow
Adding effects, masks, filters and more animated reactions to your video conversations are now available. You can also take screenshots while making video calls, both for one-on-one video call with your friend and/or group video chats.
Animated reactions- you choose one of Facebook's well-known reactions (love, "haha", "wow", sad, and angry) and that state of mind will then animate on screen, and differently depending on whether your face is seen or not.
Filters are also available on messenger just as it has been on the instagram, and you get to test what each looks like before letting others see it.
It's even more fun using Masks, because you get new ones to pick from. Some even have hidden effects, like reacting to your facial movements. Animated effects like falling hearts and twinkling stars have been added too, and they behave like masks - they stay on the screen for the duration of the chat, unless you take them off or switch to another one.
