Facebook rolls out filters for group video calls

Facebook is starting to roll out augmented reality (AR) filters for Messenger group chats. This means that users will be able to create group conversations by combining filters and AR effects. The effects will soon be available for Instagram group chats as well. Users will be able to play multiplayer interactions with friends using group effects, making group video calls with filters a shared experience. You may view Group Effects by tapping the smiling face to access the effects tray and then selecting Group Effects after initiating a video call or by creating a room in your Messenger app.

“You’ll be able to choose from a library of over 70 Group Effects, ranging from a game where you compete to build the best burger to an effect with a cute orange cat that enters everyone’s screens,” Facebook said in a statement.
Creators and developers will be able to create dynamic, real-time interactive audiences for larger audiences Until now, AR effects were only accessible for one-on-one chats and for users to put filters on photos or videos for stories and reels. In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, filters on video calling services became popular.

“Many people rely on video calls to bridge physical distance and interact with the world around them, especially now. With Group Effects, we aim to make those interactions even more exciting and memorable,” Facebook added.
