OREANDA-NEWS Specialists of the American corporation Facebook launched an open beta version of the new Spark AR service, which allows creating masks that have elements of augmented reality. They can be used to create stories in Instagram photo hosting.

It is noted that before this opportunity it was available exclusively to developers, and now it has been opened to all users. Detailed instructions and tutorial content for future creation have been added to the official website.

In addition, the developers also added an effect gallery where user-created masks will be stored. That is, in this way Facebook actually went on a line with Instagram, where similar masks for stories were created last year.
