Facebook is developing a stand-alone camera app, similar to disappearing photo app Snapchat, to increase user engagement, citing people familiar with the matter.

The app, being developed by Facebook’s “friend-sharing” team in London, is in its early stages and may never come to fruition, according to the report.

The company is also planning a feature that allows a user to record video through the app to begin live streaming, the newspaper reported.

Facebook declined to comment on the report.
