California: Facebook is far from giving up on younger demographics; that’s become abundantly clear. It wants to become cool with young users in some way, and is constantly trying new things – whether that’s launching new apps every few months or so, or testing new features in its flagship app, Instagram, WhatsApp, or Messenger.

One of those apps above is Whale, a new Meme Creator app from a group within Facebook called NPE Team LLC. NPE stands for New Product Experimentation, by the way.

The Whale app is NPE’s new experimental app that has been launched only in Canada for now, as per Apptopia – cited by The Information. The free-to-use app doesn’t have any hidden subscription pricing, and allows you to use a wide variety of editing tools for creating a meme. Users can snap a real-time photo, choose from their camera roll, or browse through the library of stock images. They can then add creative text, emojis, filters, and popular effects to make the meme more contextual and humorous. These creations can then be saved and shared on social media, or message threads.

Features inside the app include two-grid- three-grid, four-grid, or blank canvas layouts, a freeform draw tool, emojis and customisable sticker options, and effects like laser eyes, vortex, bulge, and more
