Facebook have just announced a new standalone app called Moments by creative labs which debuts in the US for now and its available on Android and iOS,its set to roll out to more regions over the coming weeks,the app basically helps you sync pictures with friends should you have missed the chance to take a snap yourself,explained below on their blog post.

Syncing photos with the Moments app is a private way to give photos to friends and get the photos you didn’t take. Moments groups the photos on your phone based on when they were taken and, using facial recognition technology, which friends are in them. You can then privately sync those photos quickly and easily with specific friends, and they can choose to sync their photos with you as well. Now, you and your friends have all the photos you took together.

Moments also keeps all of your synced photos organized and even lets you search them to find the ones that you or specific friends are in.

Moments uses facial recognition technology to group your photos based on the friends who are in them. This is the same technology that powers tag suggestions on Facebook. You can control tag suggestions in your Settings.

Download Moments from the App Store or Google Play.
