Snapchat Has New Lenses That Let Users Play AR Games

Snapchat has introduced a new set of lenses, called “Snappables,” which will let users play augmented reality (AR) games with their contacts.

These new lenses can be accessed from the bottom of the screen while in camera mode — the same section where you would go to use other lenses.

Each “Snappable” lens behaves differently with some being controlled with touch, others with motion, and others with facial expressions.

Snapchat says new Snappable lenses will be released every week.
