He also said that Facebook isn't anxious about "no innovation" allegations and defended copying Snapchat by saying that it was the ground work for Facebook's Camera Effects Platform for developers.

He showed non-game AR apps, such as turning a home into a Harry Potter-style Hogwarts castle for a kid's birthday, or seeing details on your screen of the Colosseum in Rome when you point your smartphone camera at the real thing.

Frames Studio lets users design frames that can be used either with profile pictures or in the new Facebookcamera.

"But over time I do think this is going to be a really important technology that changes how we use our phones, and eventually all of technology".
Facebook Spaces is available in beta now for Oculus Rift and Touch and can be downloaded from the Oculus Store.
Facebook at last year's F8 opened the Messenger Platform to the developer community. This would be a more advanced kind of augmented reality than what is portrayed in the trendy gamePokémon Go. He offered an example of a still photo that could be transformed into a 3D scene, where the user could pan around, change lighting and add effects such as filling the room with water, bouncing balls or skittles.
