Snap introduces Snappables AR games for Snapchat1
Earlier today, we told you that some Snapchat users are testing a revised UI that once again has stories from a member's friends and family in the same location as content from celebrities, brands, publishers and media. Now, we have some information about a new series of AR games available to Snapchat members. The games are called Snappables and allow members to compete with friends in a series of different games.
Depending on the game, users will employ touch, motion and facial expressions to control Snappables. The games are found in the same spot where Lenses are located on the Snapchat app, and include a basketball game, an aliens game and one Snappable that has players start a rock band. These are basically Lenses that double as games. Snapchat members simply choose the game they want to play, "get their game faces on" (nice pun, Snap!), and invite friends and family to compete.
Snap says that Snapchat will have new Snappable games every week. To learn more about how Snappables work, click on the video at the top of this story.
