Facebook Messenger has made some changes to Stickers while adding a few more new features to the platform.
Messenger got a new camera feature, Selfie mode, together with support for Boomerang — the looping video feature. The selfie mode works by automatically blurring the background of the image you want to capture, ensuring that the focal point remains on the people or persons in the foreground.

In addition to making it easier to navigate between the Normal, Video, Text, and Selfie camera modes – there are now more font options as well as background color possibilities for Text mode.
And speaking of Stickers, Facebook has built some augmented reality features into the Sticker sets. Now, the old stickers that you’ve been able to send in Messenger can now be emphasized – giving them a bit more life as they meld with the real world.
