Instagram to let users download all their uploaded data

The Cambridge Analytica scandal has been the epicentre for all the vociferous opinions that have been raised against the popular social media network, as many can not fathom the fact that their private information was mined without any staunch approval. The company confirmed to TechCrunch that the features would start rolling out to users worldwide in the coming weeks.

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.

According to a report by Elite Daily, John Barnett, Facebook Camera Product Manager added, "We wanted to give people an easy way to create with augmented reality and draw in the world around them". This also means that flash photography is not supported by the new feature, on account of it harshly affecting the lighting captured in the image.

Facebook's new feature allows users to add 3D drawings to videos.

It has been nearly five years since Instagram was launched. TechCrunch says that details of how the Instagram data will arrive on your hard drive and at what level of verisimilitude should come from Instagram closer to when the company actually launches its new tool. With the availability of the AR-based 3D drawing feature clear signifies that a major push is being given to the Stories and it is said to help increase the popularity of stories and drive user engagement. Further, the reports from web suggest that the technology behind the AR feature can also sense corners and objects in space, and can also detect walls and tables.

Facebook has been pushing its Stories tool aggressively, despite a muted response from users. As Facebook ramps up competition with the likes of Snapchat and Instagram, we can likely expect greater integration with AR in future updates.
