YouTube stories getting AR-filters inspired from Snapchat

12 March 2019 2

Biggest video streaming website YouTube announced Snapchat like stories back in 2018 to content creators with over 10k subscribers and since then, the feature has improved by miles. Now in the latest development in this regard, YouTube is rolling out AR filters to the stories to take on the competitors. Talking about the new feature, Google shared in a blog post sharing,

“To make all this possible, we employ machine learning (ML) to infer approximate 3D surface geometry to enable visual effects, requiring only a single camera input without the need for a dedicated depth sensor.”

It’s quite interesting to see where the augmented reality technology is heading and is being incorporated in various platforms and features around us. Earlier, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat already support AR filters that allow users to choose creative live filters that add another 3D dimension to the stories content.

Just like how you upload a new video to YouTube, you could add a new story by tapping on the + icon through the mobile YouTube app. Likewise, YouTube is also working on the system to discourage misinformation and people who spread it by rolling out verification tools.

Are you excited about the AR filters rolling out to YouTube? Share your views in the comments section below.
