Facebook is rolling out a new feature for the Facebook Messenger app. Called Photo Magic, the feature will remind you to send photos you took of your friends to them. This should come in handy if you are one of those people who takes pictures of your friends but then forgets to send them across later.
The feature works by using facial recognition on the photos you capture or the ones you already have stored on your phone. It then finds people in them and matches it against its database to identify them, and then reminds you to send the photos to your friends.
The app can automatically detect when you take a picture and can popup a notification immediately on Android to ask if you want to share the photo with the people who are in it, and with a single tap can send it to them on Facebook Messenger. Or you could dismiss the notification if you don't feel like doing that.
The feature might sound a little bit creepy but it's completely optional if you don't feel like using it.
The feature is rolling out now in Australia on Android and later on iOS and other parts of the world.
SO by doing this Z(F)uckerberg would know who u are with everytime u take pictures. Now there is no privacy in our photos too...this is rubbish!!
Nifty feature I can see myself using it.
Would be useful if Facebook didn't actually turn the photo quality to sh*t.
