Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, announced that they will start testing digital collectibles on a small number of users on the photo and video-sharing app Instagram, in a step towards allowing NFT collectors and creators to display their NFTs on apps under Meta’s control.
“Soon, we will roll out digital collectibles on Facebook, and will also soon allow people to display and share their digital collectibles as AR stickers in Instagram Stories, bringing the benefits of this technology to even more creators and collectors,” said a rep from the company to The Block.theblockcrypto
Meta CEO also declared that creators will also soon be allowed to use augmented reality NFTs on Instagram Stories through Spark AR, a free studio that lets businesses and private users create their own filters. This move will let creators place digital art into physical rooms and spaces. Meta also officially opened the doors to its first physical store, to sell hardware for virtual and augmented reality.
