Snapchat is well known for its creativity, and it is back with a fantastic feature named 3D Stickers. The name itself says everything yet, we have decided to get into this even more deep.If you don’t know about Snapchat yet, then let us tell you about it first. Snapchat is an app that can be used to take photos or record videos, then add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. Smileys introduced a long back, and they have gained so much popularity that most of the messaging and email services use them in their text. Snapchat already has so many smiley and customization options in it, but with 3D smileys, you can add an extra layer of creativity in videos.Snapchat uses “machine vision to recognise distinct objects in a video”, the website said, so the app “can track them as they move and keep the stickers in sync.”
According to Snapchat, this feature will be available on for Android users, while iOS users will have to wait for some time to get this feature on their version of Snapchat.To use this feature, you will need to shoot a video using the Snapchat app, and then from top right corner, press the emoji button to pick an image. To add it to videos, you will need to drag the picture over a moving object and hold down their finger to pin it down.
As we all know, that Snapchat is getting popular day by day, and according to recent reports, this app is being used by over 100 million people around the world. The biggest advantage of Snapchat is that most of its users are of young age, and this app keeps on expanding its business by doing the partnership with various media organizations.Other messaging networks like Facebook have already introduced 3D smileys to their users, but competition means more services for users.This could open up possibilities for advertisers too.
The headquarters of Snapchat is in Los Angeles, and the thing to know about it is that it turned down a $3 billion buyout from Facebook in 2013, was valued at more than $15 billion (roughly Rs. 99,631 crores) in its latest funding round.Though there are many instant messaging apps available out there which have 3D stickers in them. Facebook Messenger is one of the biggest examples.Still we think this feature in Snapchat will give a better experience to users.
