Brian Blau, a VR and AR analyst with worldwide consulting firm Gartner Inc. Instead of waiting for headsets to evolve to a glasses-like form factor that will be accepted by consumers for daily use, Facebook is hitting the ground running, giving developers early access to this technology to explore what's possible and seed its AR platform with apps and effects. "But we look at that and we see the beginning of a platform". "It's another way that brands can express themselves".

The social media giant upgraded its camera that now has the ability to run cutting edge AI and computer vision algorithms. At the conference, Facebook said it had improved on this, reaching a data transfer speed of 80 gigabits per second.

Moreover, Messenger's camera can easily scan these codes. On Tuesday, the company unveiled a platform that lets outside software developers create AR experiences for Facebook.
