To make your time on the app more enjoyable, Snapchat is working on ‘Cameo Mode’ that allows users to add their faces to GIFs.
According to a report, testing is currently underway for users in France and the new feature is expected to launch on December 18th for users worldwide. The timing of the launch seems perfect as many users will be looking for something interesting to do while they are staying indoors or on their way to visit their families for the holiday. Like other Snapchat trends, this new feature is expected to quickly become popular among Snapchatters.
Users can make their cameos through the messaging keyboard of the app. When users tap on their Bitmoji icon, they will be given an option to take selfies for their cameo videos. After selecting a body type, they can add their desired image to the set of 150 short GIFs that even include sound!
This is not the first time Snapchat has brought something new and interesting forward for its users, how can we forget the dancing hotdog and the rainbow vomit filters? Let’s also not forget the face swap feature that boosted Snapchat downloads on the Playstore to a double.
Although Facebook and Instagram have brought their own filters and other interesting features to their apps, Snapchat remains at the top when it comes to creativity while giving a tough time to its competitors.
