The Most Innovative Community Lenses of 2020

Over the course of 2020, we saw Lens Creators from all over the world create powerful AR experiences with Lens Studio that explored new territory, combining leading-edge technologies with novel outcomes. From using SnapML to learn new languages, to body tracking that fueled dance challenges, and even LiDAR Lenses that could detect the space around you, you’ve evolved and transformed the world around us right before our eyes!

You continue to inspire us with creations that bring joy, innovation, and wonderment to the AR landscape. As we enter this new year, we look forward to seeing how you continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible with augmented reality.

We’re recognizing 20 Lenses built by the Creator community that tapped into Lens Studio’s most innovative capabilities to redefine what a Lens can be.
