Facebook camera app could launch with a focus on sharing and live streaming

Facebook

Remember back in 2012 when Facebook launched a dedicated camera app for iPhone? The social networking giant said the app would make it easier to share photos to Facebook, but it only took two years before Facebook ultimately pulled the app.

Here we are a few years later and Facebook is apparently back to its old shenanigans. According to a report published by The Wall Street Journal, Facebook’s “friend-sharing” team in London is currently working on putting together a new Facebook camera app. This one would let users automatically open up their camera app on their phone and then quickly share photos they take from the app to the social network.

The app is also said to put a big focus on live streaming video, something that Facebook believes is a huge feature moving forward for the site.

As it stands right now, the app is currently still in its early stages of development, and there’s no word on whether or not it may actually get released. And, unlike last time, it’s not likely that Facebook would make this new camera app an iOS exclusive.
