Your smartphone should see an update soon enough because Facebook lets you doodle away on iOS and Android devices now, by adding a simple and fun service.
- The Doodle feature offered by Facebook is now available on iOS and Android-running mobiles
- It enables users to upload and draw on a photo before posting on their main Facebook app
- The feature was previously only available on Facebook’s Messenger app
- The Apple Watch has also received its own Facebook Messenger app, for devices running watchOS 2
- It offers a limited amount of pre-made responses
The feature has been available to users of Facebook’s Messenger app since last year, but it’s now coming to the main Facebook app as well. The new ‘Doodle’ option will do as described: enable doodling. Meaning that you could now draw and sketch across photos before posting them for your friends to see.
The app to release for iOS and Android will allow you to choose the color of your ink, pen style, and then you can paint away across the touchscreen. The Facebook Doodle will enable you to add colors, amusing sketching or just plain old ‘look at this’ qualities to your pictures. A snap of a photo, a quick edit, and then it’s ready to be published directly from your phone.
Similar to the services offered by Snapchat, Doodle has been added to the arsenal of built-in editing. This included filters, text overlays or stickers to add to pictures through the Facebook app. It’s a simple, basic function that allows for limited but potentially entertaining editing. You only need to upload a photo and select Doodle. It’s certainly no Photoshop.
The update should be already rolling out for all devices.
On other news, Apple also presented their updated messaging options on their Apple Watch running watchOS 2. The Facebook Messenger on the wrist gadget now presents with a few new features to enhance user experience. Since the watch screen is far too tiny to write on, the platform offers a range of pre-made responses and other quick means of communication.
The Messenger app on your Apple Watch will let you send emojis, stickers, “likes”, or record voice messages with the use of the watch’s built-in microphone. You can also use the service to send your location or choose from a list of pre-made replies. It’s fully compatible with watchOS 2, which means smooth sailing and instant update.
You might not be able to send out personally-written responses, but it would do in a hurry.
