Facebook Live to Get Snapchat-like Filters

 In a bid to expand and improve its live video platform, Facebook users can soon go live from the face-swapping MSQRD app and utilize different Snapchat-like masks and filters while the video is running.

Facebook first acquired Masquerade, the Belarusian startup behind MSQRD back in March with the intention to "continue enhancing the Facebook video experience," technology website The Verge reported on Friday.

Available later this year, the feature will help users invite a friend to "drop in" on a live broadcast.

Facebook will also let you schedule a live broadcast and has built a lobby system so people can hangout before one starts.

Both features will be available for owners of Verified Pages but Facebook expects to make them widely available shortly thereafter, the report added.
