As we know, Snapchat is testing a bunch of new features which will make it more useful for its users. Now with Snapchat, you can add face lenses to your selfies even after a photo has already clicked. Snapchat is launching a new feature to regain the love of users for its much-hated redesign.
Earlier in Snapchat, you need to simply tap on your face while clicking a selfie which brings up the collection of lenses from Snapchat. Just you have to swipe between them and select anyone from it which will apply to your selfie. Now Snapchat seems that it will use a facial recognition algorithm which will provide you the face lenses even after the photograph has clicked.
For using this feature, you simply need to use any other image editing tool which is available within the app. Snapchat will show you a ‘Smiley’ icon which is available below the ‘Paperclip’ link icon. Tap on that smiley icon to see the complete range of face lenses. Later select any one of them for your clicked selfie. You can also select the famous lenses which include dog ears or flower tiara.
However, Snapchat will only make an appearance of a smiley icon if the app detects your face clearly. If your face is half visible or you have selected any inanimate objects then Snapchat will not show any lenses.
Additionally, Snapchat also testing hands-free video shooting mode which will come earlier this month. Once you have started recording a video by long-pressing the camera icon. You can slide down to new ‘Lock’ icon and release your finger to shoot a video with your camera app.
Recently Snapchat has released its Multi-Snap feature which will allow you to record up to six Snaps, i.e 60 seconds of video. Also, Snapchat has started rolling Stories Everywhere feature which will allow you to share all your content on a website or with other apps.
With Snapchat stable version 10.26.5.0, you can try this feature. Do try this Snapchat Face Lenses feature and share your experience in our comment section below.
