Facebook is bringing augmented reality (AR) to its ads by letting you “try on” clothes and makeup before you buy.
The AR ads appear the same way as any other in News Feed, with a new “Tap to try on” option in the photo. If you do so, Facebook accesses your phone’s camera and allows you see how the item would look on you.
If you like the item, you can “seamlessly” go from the AR experience to actually buying it, the social media giant says in its blog post.
Michael Kors was the first brand to test the ads, by allowing people to try on and purchase sunglasses. Facebook plans to expand its AR ad offering later in the summer, with brands like Sephora.
Nyx Professional Makeup, Bobbi Brown, Pottery Barn and Wayfair will join the push too, Buzzfeed reports.
The move brings Facebook into an AR market previously dominated by Snapchat, which offered sponsored Lenses, CNBC notes.
In May, Facebook revealed athat will be compatible with Messenger and Instagram.
The company alsoin Ready Player One movie posters earlier this year.
Dominating the format has been in among the Facebook’s goals since 2017, when CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that it was.
