So you have been looking at your friends pictures with pretty Snapchat lenses? But you are really not sure how do they do it? Well, don’t worry. We are here to help. 

This is a step-by-step guide that would help you to use this latest Snapchat feature without any issues. If you still have any queries, feel free to raise them in the comments section below.

Please note that Snapchat lenses are different from Snapchat filters. While you can apply the Snapchat filters after clicking the photo, you need to apply the Snapchat lenses at the time of photo clicking. So, you can see in real time how you would look with the particular Snapchat lens.

1. Get the Latest Version of App

First thing you need to be sure about is that you should have the latest version of the app. The Snapchat lenses update came in version 9.15. So, make sure you have it installed in your device. 

If you have automatic updates on, then it should not be a problem at all. However, if you see any other lower version of the app, just go to the play store and update it.

2. Keep yourself ready

Now we are not telling you to put on lots of makeup. But since you are going to click amazing selfies, you should look your best. No matter you send out these selfies or share on instagram, your friends should get jealous. Once you are done, head on to the Step 3.

3. Get a Hold of your Phone

Most people like to take selfies in portrait mode instead of landscape. Perhaps this is why Snapchat released its filters in portrait mode only. So, if you try to hold the phone in landscape position and look for a Snapchat lens, we are sorry.

4. Focus on the Camera

The next step is to focus on the camera carefully. This way, app would find your face easily. And once it finds it, it will scan your face. Snapchat indicates finding your face by showing you a pulsing circle.

5. Press on the Screen

As soon as the app finds your face, you should click on the screen with your thumb. Just tap and hold. You will see a variety of lenses come up. A tip here is to keep your face straight. Though Snapchat works with rotated head too, but you would get the best results in the case of former.

6. Click a Picture

Rest is the work of the app itself. So, when you find the lens is properly fitting you face, you can click the picture. Just click on the lens to click the picture. Sometimes, you may need to click on your face multiple times to get the perfect picture.

7. Share the Picture

Later, you can share the picture with your friends. Or you can just keep it with yourself. Make note that if the app asks you to perform some action, do it. For example, it might ask you to raise your eyebrows, or open your mouth. This is just to find your face features properly.
