Snapchat Released New Lens That Responds To Sounds

Its first ever lens that responds to sound has been released by Snapchat. Citing the firm, Engadget reported, “It is an appealing animal mask for your face, along with ears that pulsate and shine, and eyes that stir relying on the sounds it listens. Snapchat says it is just the initial of many.”

Further, the report mentions Snapchat is intending to roll out more Lenses that will respond to sounds over the approaching weeks. Lenses of Snapchat are filters that dock 2 alternatives, World Lenses and Face Lenses.

World Lenses enable the users to reimagine and recreate the environs around them and facilitates them to get characters to life. On the other hand, Face Lenses allows the users to convert into something diverse along with voice alterations.

Snapchat, earlier in April, declared its Lens Studio software to enable users to produce 3D and 2D AR (Augmented Reality)-based selfie lenses and unbolt new filters developed by other Snapchat artists and users.

The company, in early May, started releasing a new revamp for its iOS users and, at present, chats and snaps are arranged chronologically, whereas Stories from friends have been shifted back to the camera screen’s right-hand side.

The company also included a distinct Subscriptions feature to maintain Stories from famous publishers and creators in the loop while enabling the other Stories to be alienated. There is no talk about when the revamp will be released to Android users.

The new filter type surfaces as the firm is witnessing slowed user expansion after revamping the application. The deceleration was envisaged prior to the design modifications by CEO Evan Spiegel; however, the firm proceeded so as to attempt to make Snapchat simpler to steer for new users.

Recently, Snapchat started letting you send your enduring real-time position to a friend, or ask for theirs, which display on the Snap Map as well as in your message thread.
