To fight off the competition, Facebook is putting a lot of efforts onto its Messenger app these days. After almost forcing users to adopt the app and adding numerous features like voice calls for example, Facebook has now added a new Snapchat-like feature to its messaging app: You can now draw and add text to your pictures before sending them.
With the latest update, you can now draw and type directly on photos from your camera roll before you send them to friends with Facebook Messenger.
Although the drawing controls are pretty basic, you can use different stroke sizes and colours. There are no eraser but there is an undo button at the bottom of the screen. You slide your finger up and down the screen to select a color and horizontally to select the stroke size of your brush.
You can also directly add text to your photos. The text is centred by default and you can move it up or down with your finger.
One could argue these 2 new functions are rather basic, but they probably will satisfy the needs of most users, to be honest. Facebook is keen on trying to gain market share against the leading messaging apps (whatsapp, Lime, snapchat) and will probably be adding or improving features in the neat future.
