Want to chat with your Facebook friends through your mobile device? You’re going to need the Facebook Messenger app. The social network has taken out the messaging feature from its main app thus forcing users to download the Messenger app if they want to keep in touch with contacts. The app has already been downloaded over 500 million times and the latest update adds the ability to doodle on photos before they’re sent in a conversation.
The new feature is very simple. Select a photo already taken through the camera from the photo roll and then either select the text or pen option. Simply doodle over the photo with your finger, the possibilities are endless, and when you’re done, send it on its way.
It is not possible to doodle on a photo that is taken through the “selfie-cam” that’s built into the app. So if you want to take a new photo before you get down to the doodling part, you will have to take it through the native camera app and then launch Facebook Messenger, where it can be selected from the photo roll. This limitation is understandable since photos taken through the selfie-cam are immediately sent to the contact you’re talking to.
