There’s nothing like Snapchat lenses for the holidays.
Three new holiday-themed lenses were unwrapped Friday:
- Family Portrait: People who are alone for the holidays can create a family portrait of just themselves, seeing how they would look as other family members via a combination of machine learning lens technologies.
- Santa’s Beard: Snapchatters can start recording a Snap and then drag their finger across the slider to grow their own beard.
- Ugly Sweater: Users can “wear” an augmented reality ugly sweater and face mask.
The Snap Camera desktop application also has a new lens category, Snappy Holidays, featuring dozens of holiday-themed lenses.
