The 3D drawing feature, as what the company calls it, allows users make doodles on the screen and combine the drawings with the real world. It seems like the social media giant is facing issues getting people to use the feature on its platform.

Facebook is giving stories a boost by rolling out AR doodles and Instagram's Boomerang to its camera feature suite, Tech Crunch reports. This new feature lets you add AR based doodles before recording your Facebook stories.

Instagram has taken a page out of the Facebook book as it will now allow the users to download a copy of the profile of all the information they have shared. Speaking about the feature to TechCrunch, John Barnett, a Facebook Camera Product Manager, said, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them". Now there is also a new AR feature to help in the same.

Previously, the company revealed its AR effects back at F8 previous year. Further, the 3D drawing feature comes with only one pastel effect for making the drawings on the videos; however as per some reports, more brush options are to be added in the future. Yes, there are millions of Facebook users who are making use of this Facebook Stories on a daily basis.

On the other hand, Instagram's Boomerang feature is going to replace the Camera button on the Stories on Facebook.

The stories in Facebook soon it will be possible to draw 3D pictures using the tool of augmented reality. Facebook Stories has not been able to duplicate that success yet, but the company likely hopes that integrating the established Boomerang brand will change this. The company established brand partnerships for Facebook Stories in October past year and has also considered letting users create stories from the desktop website in the hopes of attracting more engagement.
