Facebook Messenger update for iOS lets you draw on photos before sending

Today Facebook updated its Messenger app for iOS with a feature that’s sure to bring out the artist in everyone.

Now you can draw and type directly on photos from your camera roll before you whisk them off to your friends. The paint brush feature offers varying stroke sizes and colors while the text field centers whatever you write in the middle of the photo. The text can be moved up or down.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

The drawing controls are pretty rudimentary and have no eraser, but there is an undo button. You slide your finger up and down the screen to select a color and horizontally to select the stroke size of your brush.

Facebook is keen on adding more features to the app, stating in the What’s New portion of the app’s description, “we update the app every two weeks, so stay tuned for more fun features on the way!”

Earlier this week Facebook started supporting stickers in post comments. So yeah, expect more fun from the social network.
