Introducing Lens Studio

Today, we’re announcing Lens Studio — a new way for anyone to create augmented reality Lenses and share them with the Snapchat community!

Lens Studio is a free desktop app for Mac and Windows, with easy-to-use guides and tools that students, creatives, and developers alike can use to bring their creations to life. Whether you’re just starting to dabble in 2D animation or are a professional artist interested in creating your own experiences, Lens Studio makes sharing your creation with the world fast and fun.

Once your Lens is approved, you’ll be given a special Snapcode that anyone can scan with Snapchat to unlock and share your Lens!

With the launch of Lens Studio, we’re excited to make Lenses more accessible to creators, and experiences within Snapchat more personal and diverse. We’ve seen how much more fun Geofilters have become since inviting the community to create their own three years ago — and can’t wait to see what new things you’ll build with Lens Studio!


Happy creating!

Team Lens Studio
