Facebook begins rolling out Snapchat-like Messenger feature
The launch of Messenger Day is just Facebook's latest in a long list of attempts to undermine Snapchat and its Snapchat Stories feature.
On Thursday, Facebook released a new feature for its messaging app that lets users add visual effects, frames and art to photos and videos that disappear in 24 hours.
Unlike Snapchat and its 10-second video limit, Messenger Day videos are limited to 15 seconds. Alternatively, you can tap on the "Add to your day" button at the top of Messenger inbox.
The Messenger Day feature is just like ephemeral stories that last for 24 hours and then automatically disappear. Tapping the Camera icon will open the Messenger camera with new features and editing tools. Take a photo, choose from more than 5,000 effects, and post. Tap on that, click an image or record a video, add the filters you want, doodle whatever, once you are done, you select the right arrow there.
Jakarta users will be able to add stickers reflecting their current location in their Snapchat stories.
With Messenger Day, you can add photos and videos to your "day", where friends can view and reply to them. So far, there are more than a dozen stickers available for each city as part of a new app update. Now, the social media giant is rolling it out to all iOS and Android users around the globe.
If you are reading this, I'm sure you already know how to use Instagram so this will not be super basic.
Another day, another Snapchat Stories copycat arriving on another messaging app. There will be some "Add to your Day" text under a photo or video.
For better privacy and security, users can make custom groups with whom they can share certain updates instead of keeping it public.
Instagram continues to mirror Snapchat as Instagram Stories get another feature: geostickers. Anything shared can also be deleted if you choose. Users can also manually search for the sticker they are looking for.
Additionally, someone viewing your Instagram Story can tap a geosticker to see the location page for that specific city.
