Snapchat Launches Special AR-Based Lenses for Coronavirus


The world is suffering from the pandemic Coronavirus. To make the people aware about not spreading this virus to others, the popular Snapchat app has brought up a new social awareness feature for millions of its users across the globe.

Every Snapchat user is very well aware of the different types of Lenses powered by Augmented Reality on the Snapchat app. The company brings innovative lenses for its users regularly. In fact, we get to see a new set of lenses regularly which are funny and exciting.

Apart from this, Snap always takes care of the various functions, festivals and more so that people can enjoy and celebrate such occasions with a unique way. They offer specialized lenses so that the users can take a snap and share with their loved ones using the mobile app.

To make the people aware of the Coronavirus, Snap has brought up a new lens to encourage people to maintain social distancing. Apart from the new social distancing lens, the company has also added a few features to the app to help the people who are suffering from various things or are stressed out.

If we talk about the lenses, the company has launched two new lenses powered by Augmented Reality. The first lense is My Social Distance. This lense draws a virtual circle on the ground when you open up the camera of the app. The circle indicates the actual distance where you should be.

Social Distancing is the only way to prevent yourself from getting infected with Covid19. If someone else tries to come closer to you, the color of the circle will start to turn red. It lets you maintain a safe distance from others which is indeed a very good thing.

Apart from this, the company has also introduced a new Here for You tool in the last month which is also related to the Coronavirus. The feature is there for the users who are keeping themselves isolated from others who have found symptoms of the virus. Snap has teamed up with WHO to provide updated information within the app so that more and more people can be awarded and can share right information with their loved ones.
