Snapchat Adds World Lenses To Filter Not Just Your Face But The Environment
Snapchat wants you to explore your rear camera instead of taking selfies using the front camera with filter effect on your face. Introducing the new feature of Snapchat, the World Lenses. The app dropped a major update on Tuesday that lets you apply a bunch of new graphics to the world around you.
Snapchat’s World Lenses are available on both iOS and Android, that means all smartphones can enjoy this new feature. Like the regular lenses of the app, they boast a bunch of silly, augmented reality graphics. To access the new lenses, simply switch to your front-facing camera within Snapchat and tap the screen — as you would with the selfie’s lense. Then, scroll through the circular tiles at the bottom of the screen to apply the lenses to your surroundings.
Make sleepy clouds vomit rainbows, propel hearts at those around you, or watch butterflies fly around your living room. These are just a few of the fun new augmented reality options Snapchat has provided for our entertainment pleasure, according to Search Engine Journal.
Choose the appropriate design to your mood to make the photo or video good to look at. The Snapchat's World Lenses have a lot of options. It includes lenses such as Election Day, floating glitter, a rainbow that has a vomiting clouds, heart and horror themes.
The update also brings with it some other features, including support for Spectacles - Snapchat's upcoming video-recording glasses. A new Spectacles section within "my account" lets you pair your app with the glasses - which has not been released yet - using a snap code (Snapchat's version of a QR code), as reported by Mashable.
And the update doesn't stop there. As reported by Digital Trends, the update also includes the ability to add lenses to your face during video chat — although we are not entirely sure how many people use Snapchat to make video calls over, say, Apple FaceTime or Facebook Messenger. Additionally, you can now poach snaps from stories and Discover channels to share with friends by holding down on the image or video. The Snapchat update (version 9.43) is available for iOS and Android.
