Facebook recently introduced AR stickers in Messenger
Facebook recently introduced enhanced reality labels (AR) in Messenger, allowing users to place animated stickers on top of their photos and videos that appear in the real world around them. Our guide will show you how to add an AR poster to a photo or video in Messenger.
Note: These shots were captured in the iOS Messaging app.
Step 1: In the conversation where you want to send an image or video with an AR sticker, click the smiley face icon on the left side of the text entry field.
Step 2: Click "Stickers". Note: If you recently sent a sticker in this conversation or in another conversation, you may not need to complete this step.
Step 3: Tap the desired label to send it to the conversation. Note: You can view the different sets of labels you've downloaded (if applicable) by clicking their icons at the bottom of the screen. If you want to browse posters based on mood or feeling, such as "Happy" or "Active," click the magnifying glass at the far right of the label list. Click "+" in the lower-right corner of the screen to browse and download additional sticker packs.
The fourth step: Click the camera icon to the right of the label you sent.
Step Five: Touch and drag the sticker around the "Attach" screen to the desired location in the real world environment. When you leave, the sticker will try to stay in place, even if you move your device. Note: If you want to switch to a different label from the same label set, swipe left or right on the capture button at the bottom of the screen.
Step 6: When you have finished arranging the snapshot, tap or hold the capture button to capture a new image or video, respectively.
Step 7: From here, you can continue to edit your post as usual. For example, you can add text and other elements to your post, if you'd like. When you're done editing your post, click the arrow in the lower-right corner of the screen to send the post to the current conversation.
Note: If you want to send the post to multiple users at the same time, click "Click to add friends" in the lower-right corner of the screen to select additional recipients. You can also click "Your Story" at the bottom of the screen to share your story, rather than your current conversation.
