Facebook's Snapchat stories clone, Messenger Day, is now rolling out globally

Snapchat is already concerned about the release of Facebook Messenger Day, which could snap up some users from Snap's core. Now, the social network says the feature is rolling out to users worldwide, on both Android and iOS. We will see on the homepage, just like with Instagram which friends have updated their day recently and we will have controls to configure who can see what we publish and who does not. You use Messenger's built-in camera to snap pictures or videos; add text, doodles, cartoon overlays, or facial filters; and then drop this content into a little digital bundle (your "Day") that all or some of your friends can access, and that deletes itself every 24 hours. Snapchat introduced its "Stories" feature back in 2013, allowing people to add snippets to a daily video that played in chronological order before disappearing after 24 hours. So, tapping on, say, a Brooklyn sticker in a story will take you to Instagram's location page for Brooklyn.

From your camera, capture a photograph or video and select the smiley face icon in the top right corner to add art and effects to the footage captured.

Once you have your photo or video the way you want it, tap the arrow in the bottom right corner. Users can also personalize their images with more than 5,000 frames, effects and stickers. Looking at the number of daily users on the platform, Snapchat's growth slowed down significantly in the second half of previous year. They can then decide if they want to hide their Day from any users or share with everyone. You can then add directly to your day, save it to your phone's camera roll, and/or you can choose to send it to a specific person or group of people. But according to Facebook, there is a difference: Snapchat lets you relive your friends' day while Messenger Day will supposedly let you make plans in the moment.

Floyd Mayweather 'officially out of retirement for Conor McGregor' fight
The odds posted at the Westgate stipulate that the fight has to happen by May 31, 2018 or that bets will be refunded. Mayweather claims he didn't even know who McGregor was when the Irishman first called him out a year ago .

After taking a photo or video in a chat, users can also add it to their Day.

Late past year, Instagram released the Snapchat Stories kind of feature and there were reports that Facebook is also working on a similar feature within the Facebook app.
