Today's new augmented reality tools give a small, rectangular glimpse into Facebook's future, where instead of monetizing the space in between users' life events and cat pictures, the company monetizes the world around you.

Today, we're announcing plans to build Clear History.

Face filters, text styles and stickers help turn casual moments into experiences you can't wait to share. Just tap the share button in any app that supports the feature.

Instagram's testing video calls right now and will expand them to all users "soon". A recent API update is allowing other apps to share directly to Instagram Stories, similar to the tool that allowed other apps to post to the Instagram timeline.

And, Instagram has revealed a new video chat feature that will allow users to speak face-to-face with their friends individually, or in small groups. The new Explore will organize suggested content into relevant topic channels, making iteasier than ever to browse across your interests, while going deeper into any specific area.

"People use live video to just hang out", he said. Wong has dived into the Instagram app code and uncovered some evidence that it could be testing new capabilities that will make using the app a whole lot easier. You can minimize the people you're chatting with and continue to search and explore Instagram and people you chat with can't see your screen. First and foremost is video calling, which is now in a testing phase and will roll out globally in the coming months.

While this new wing of the Facebook platform is opening to all developers, only approved partners that go through a review process like the three mentioned will have attribution watermarks added to the shares.

More fun creative effects from your favorite accounts are coming soon, including Ariana Grande, Baby Ariel, Liza Koshy, Vogue, and Buzzfeed. Now when people who connect through Marketplace receive a message in a language that is different from their default language in Messenger, M will ask if they want to translate the message.

Watch the full keynote here. Instagram Stories already offers a number of handy recording features, such as stop-motion, Boomerang and super-zoom.
