Facebook has opened Spark AR to the Instagramming public, an Engadget report has revealed. Notably, Spark AR is pretty responsible for all augmented reality experiences across all Facebook products. According to Engadget, Facebook first announced it would allow Instagrammers to create their own AR effects at the F8 Developers conference in Spring. While Spark AR was shared with select Instagram users in a closed beta, it has finally released to the public. The report further said one has to scroll to the end of the filter tray in the story section and click on "Browse More Effect" option to find the user made filters on the photosharing app.

Once a user is ready to start their own creations, they can download the free Spark AR Studio on Mac OS or Windows. Facebook has also said that creating filters will be easy, thanks to a drag and drop functionality. Furthermore, once a creator's follower sees a new filter or effect, they can share it in their stories. Their followers can repeat the same action. A small tag on the bottom allows the original creator to get full credit. Notably, Facebook isn't the first to make use of user filters, with Snapchat opening access to its Lens Studio in 2018 and later creating Lens Explorer to find user-made AR lenses.
