Snap Inc. has announced the launch of 3D Camera Mode on Snapchat. With the new feature, Snapchatters can create Snaps that change in perspective depending on how users view them on their phones.

Beginning today, Snapchatters with iPhone X and above will be able to create and share Snaps with 3D, and swipe on new 3D Effects, Lenses and Filters. Snapchatters with any device (Android or iPhone) will be able to receive and interact with Snaps created in 3D Camera Mode: If they come across one of these new kinds of Snaps in a Chat or Story, they can bring it to life by giving their phone a wiggle.

“With the introduction of depth and interaction, Snaps can capture even more detail about how the world looks and how you feel. Together with our new 3D Effects, this feature adds a new layer of expression to bring your Snaps to life in a way that's a step closer to the real thing.” Andrew McPhee, Exploration at Snap Inc

To access this new feature, users must update the Snapchat app, open the Snapchat camera, select the dropdown menu on the right, select “3D” and take a selfie! From there, Snapchatters can swipe to add 3D Lenses and Filters for another layer of interactivity. They can share those to their Stories, Chat, or even save to their Camera Roll.

3D Effects was first introduced with Spectacles 3 last month. Spectacles 3 will unlock 3D Effects for the world-facing camera, while 3D Camera Mode and 3D Effects on Snapchat is for selfies.

It is worthwhile mentioning that on average, 203 million people use Snapchat daily, and more than 70% of Daily Active Users play with or view Lenses every day.
