Snapchat launches 3D filters

Snapchat has launched new 3D lenses, allowing users to change the world around them in three dimensions.

The new feature lets you interact with what you see on screen. You can write giant words that float about next to real objects – or plant a virtual rose in the ground.

The update is now live and it’s expected Snapchat will release new “experiences” daily.

It’s the latest in the battle for our attention from the social media giants.

Instagram and Facebook have recently added features similar to Snapchat Stories.

How to do it

When you are snapping with the rear-facing camera, just tap the camera screen to find the new lenses.

Swipe up and down the screen to move an object closer or further away.

Press and hold an object to pick it up and move it somewhere else.

Tap somewhere on screen (other than object) to place object in that new location in a real-world space.

On your first try, there are 3D hand animations that guide you on how to move an object, and how to load a new object.

To keep the experiences fresh, the 3D lenses will change over time, and offer different interactions.
