Th company has announced new features for Lens Studio, including seven brand new templates for the creation of face lenses. Now, developers can create Face Lenses, with seven different templates from which to choose.

The new Face Templates include;

  • Face Paint
  • Photo: Photo lets creators overlay lenses onto a single static (head-on) photo
  • Distort
  • Trigger
  • 2D Objects
  • 3D Objects
  • Baseball Cap

According to TechCrunch, Snap is also integrating with Giphy to give Lens Studio developers access to Giphy’s massive library of animated GIF stickers.

Snap is opening up these third-party lenses to the public with the launch of Community Lens Stories. Each story will include public Snaps submitted on Our Story that highlight a community lens.

You just need to simply swipe up on one of these Snaps to unlock the lens, or browse other Lenses by tapping the ‘i’ button above a Community Lens in the carousel.
