How to Use New Snapchat Lenses

We’ll show you how to use the new Snapchat Lenses to enhance your selfies with amazing layers that transform your look and amazing special effects to your snaps.

The new Snapchat update adds support for Lenses, which Snapchat calls these new special effects that track the position of your head and respond to facial movements like an open mouth or raised eyebrows.

You’ll need an iPhone or Android with the official Snapchat app to use the new Snapchat Lenses to make your photos stand out, but you won’t have to pay extra. The only thing Snapchat is currently charging with this update is the option to replay in a snap.

Here’s how the new Snapchat Lenses feature works on iPhone or Android.

How to Use Snapchat Lenses

You need to make sure you update to the Snapchat update coming September 15th. This will allow you to use the new Snapchat Lenses on iPhone and Android. This should also work on tablets.

The video above shows you how to use Snapchat Lenses and the instructions below show you how to use the new Snapchat feature and record a Snap with Snapchat Lenses.

Open Snapchat and then use the front camera on your device to frame yourself.

Now hold the phone at the distance you want to keep it for the shot and it works best when you keep your head mostly up to the camera.

Touch and hold your face for a second or two and then you will see a new menu option appear under your face and if you touch your face again you will see a quick white wireframe appear that should align with your face.

Now tap on the options at the bottom of the screen to switch to the Snapchat Lenses option you want to use. You will see instructions to open your mouth or raise your eyebrows. This will trigger the action.

After selecting the Snapchat effect you want to use, you can press and hold it to start recording. Move your mouth, eyebrows, and even your head while Snapchat Lens records your supercharged snaps.

When you’re done, you can add subtitles and filters to the video. The overall effect works best if you keep your head the same distance from the camera.

If the Snapchat Lens effects are visible but not flush with your face, you have to touch your face again and the wireframe outline should flash to show you the correct outline.
