Facebook testing Snapchat feature inside Messenger

In an another attepmt to take on photo sharing mobile service Snapchat, Facebook has rolled out a new feature called Messenger Day which lets users post photos and videos that disappear after a day.

According to a Tech Crunch report, Messenger Day -- which reportedly tries to clone Snapchat's "Stories" feature -- is now available in Poland.

Messenger Day appears at top of the conversation list in Facebook Messenger.

Users can add animated text and graphics to pictures or video snippets before sharing them.

"Facebook doesn't yet have an answer to Snapchat's killer "lens" selfie face effects.

Earlier, Facebook announced that users can soon go live from the face-swapping MSQRD app and utilise different Snapchat-like masks and filters while the video is running.

Facebook will also let you schedule a live broadcast and has built a lobby system so people can hangout before one starts.
