Note: Lenses are subjected to change after certain time. Depending upon an event, the Snapchat team will add more lenses to your application. For example; in Christmas holidays, you will snow and related lenses. So, the key to getting new lenses is constantly updated your Snapcash application from App Store or Google Play Store.

Tips:

  • Use the text or Emoji’s to make your images even more attractive after applying a filter.
  • Don’t forget to change the time of snap by clicking on the stopwatch icon in the bottom right corner of the screen.
  • You can’t apply two filters simultaneously on a snap. However, a filter and lens can be applied at the same time.
  • In the recent update of snapchat, you can try out all lens with other friends. Previously, users were only able to use the face swap with other friends.
