“With the new Camera app, you can share photos on Facebook faster than ever, and see all your friends’ latest shots in one place,” commented the company in via a page concerning the release.

Features of the platform allow users to edit photos by adding filters, cropping and more. Also available is tagging via taps and the ability for users to upload multiple photos to the network at once.
