With an aim to ramp up its photo offering, Facebook is testing a new Snapchat-like feature that lets you add filters, text, stickers, and more on photos before you post them on the social network.
Facebook is testing the latest feature on iOS that will allow you to add overlaid text in any color, instantly preview filters that you swipe across your photos, or paste Facebook’s stickers on top. Facebook already has a Stickered app for Messenger that allows you to put stickers on your photos. The new feature is integrated into the app and does not require you to use a separate app for adding stickers to your photos. The latest feature is initially coming to iOS and some users are already seeing the new Facebook photo uploader.
At the moment it is not clear whether this feature is coming to other platforms as well. Facebook tried to acquire Snapchat and failed. This latest move comes from the social network to tap one of the most important elements of the social media juggernaut i.e. photos.
