Halloween is going to be a bit different this year due to stay-at-home orders. However, Facebook has got you covered. The company has recently revealed new Halloween features for Messenger!

 

These include spooky AR filters:

 

 

360 Backgrounds:

 

And Halloween Stickers:

 

 

Although AR filters and 360 backgrounds have been available for quite some time now on Facebook, it seems the company has made increased efforts this time to provide greater, digital enhancements as video chat is being used more than ever right now. In fact, according to SocialMediaToday, group video chats have increased by 10x in 2020. That being said, these digital features will most likely see an increase in usage over the coming weeks.

 

Let’s face it, Halloween costumes can be stressful and a lot of work, but with these new spooky Messenger Features you’ll be in costume with just the push of a button!
