Snapchat unveil new Lenses

Snapchat's Lenses can now be controlled by your voice.

The social media platform has unveiled a set of brand new Lenses, which respond to a person's words rather than their facial movements.

Before, users would have to blink or nod their head to make the lens move but now they can just say words like 'Hi,' 'Love' or 'Wow' to put the lens into action.

This new feature comes hot on the heels of the Lens Explorer tab, which allows you to access a range of Lens created by Snapchat users all over the world.

They shared in a blog post: "Starting today, there's an easier way to discover and unlock thousands of Lenses built by Snapchatters around the world! To begin browsing in Lens Explorer, just tap the new icon that appears when the Lens carousel is active. Tap a Lens tile to unlock a Lens and be taken directly to the Snap camera, or browse Lenses in featured Stories.

"Unlock a Lens by swiping up on Snaps in these Stories. Since we launched Lens Studio in late 2017, creators have submitted over 100,000 unique Lenses, which have been viewed by Snapchatters over 2.5 billion times. Now, with the introduction of Lens Explorer, community Lenses will be discoverable alongside the Lens carousel, making them easier to find and play with."
