Act two is "giving developers the power to build all kinds of AR tools into the first augmented reality platform, the camera". "We see the beginning of a new platform". This makes your avatar in the VR space still very much you, and your experience with other people's avatars could still be very real as you immerse in the technology that combines physicality and socialization. In fact, an executive from the company boldly claimed that augmented reality glasses will be the new norm by 2022. The number of artificial-intelligence chatbots on Messenger is also growing, so you'll be able to chat with more businesses.
Facebook just unveiled Spaces, a virtual reality platform where you can hang out with your friends in a digital dimension.
Facebook also used the developers conference to introduce a test version of a virtual-reality (VR) application that lets people in different locations socialize in virtual worlds using Oculus Rift headgear. Zuckerberg has spent the past 18 months reorganizing his company and its suite of consumer apps - Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger - around a new interface, focused nearly entirely on the camera. "You can add glasses or facial hair".
Marketers will be pleased to note improvements to Facebook Analytics-formerly known as Facebook Analytics for Apps-a powerful, free product for accessing rich audience demographics, and measuring customer behavior across channels.
Messenger also gets some new chat functions including an extension that allows more than one person to interact with popular apps like Spotify, for group interactions with playlists.
Many people use the cameras on their phones to write text on images, add digital objects and modify existing things with face filters and style transfers. A new machine-learning service will help small business users automate replies to queries based on data on their websites. It is created to power the imagery-heavy experiences of the future.

The divide between urban Americans voting Democrat and those in rural areas voting Republican has become even more pronounced. North Dakota would see the smallest premium spike if the payments to insurers stopped-a 10-percent increase.
The experiences being built in Messenger are inherently social. It allows enterprises to manage multiple rides at the same time and from the same dashboard. If you want to play a game of chess as you eat: "We could just be sitting here and we want to play chess, snap, here's a chess board and we can play together".
So I think internally, we just understood where we were going. You can now find favorite brands like Spotify, TheScore, OpenTable, Food Network, NBA, Wall Street Journal and Kayak - with many more on the way.
Messenger's new AI assistant, M, for example will sort out your dinner plans via delivery.com.
Zuckerberg stressed open collaboration on developing these new mobile tools as it's "an important time to work on building a community". It's now your 2-in-1 shampoo conditioner for every type of mode of communication you could possibly need - and then some.
"Our hearts go out to the family and friends of Robert Godwin, Sr". "So, yes, it's something we're doing a lot of things on behind that curtain that we talked about". It's here the most innovative, "category-defining products" are developed, and as Dugan described at F8, the team is focusing a good portion of its attention on our brains.
