To "help spread holiday cheer," Facebook integrated five new features into Messenger's camera to make your chat a bit more animated and a bit more festive. The platform now supports the fan-favorite looping-video format, Boomerang (originally seen in Facebook-owned Instagram), as well as a new Selfie mode that blurs the background of a portrait while giving the subject a subtle glow. In addition to making it easier to navigate between camera modes -- Normal, Video, Text, and now Selfie -- Text mode now has more font options and background color possibilities.

More stickers have been added to the already enormous sticker library, only the new ones are powered by AR which can be dragged onto your own videos and photographs. Pictures from your device's camera can now be filtered and edited via Messenger.

Lastly, as the app does for most holidays and special occasions, a new collection of festive goodies can be found across the platform including themed stickers, masks, and filters. These updates are available to most global users as of now.
