Earlier this year at the Facebook F8 conference for developers, the company announced that soon anyone will be able to make AR-powered effects for Instagram with a tool called Spark AR Studio. While the tool was previously only available to select Instagrammers, yesterday it became accessible to everyone as a beta. According to the company, everyone can be a creator whether you are "a professional or have a limited tech background.

The reported feature would look a lot like Messenger for desktop, according to tipster Jane Manchun Wong.According to Wong, Direct for desktop web would resemble its Messenger counterpart by showing a list of users and messages on the left hand side and individual conversations on the other side of the page. Users will also be able to open up another tab on the right to see message information such as a list of members in a conversation, according to the screenshots.
