Snapchat 3D selfies

Snapchat has announced something that will please a lot of iPhone fans and users. However, this is one of the features that will be hated by all the Android users. Because Snapchat has launched a 3D selfie feature which is exclusively available on iPhone X and above.

Basically, this feature from Snapchat is similar to the 3D images we see on Facebook where the perspective changes as we move the phone. Here is how Snap explains its new feature:

We’re excited to introduce a 3D Camera Mode to Snapchat — adding a new layer of expression and interactivity to Snaps. Snapchatters can use the new 3D Camera Mode to create Snaps that change in perspective and appearance based on how you move your phone when you view them — bringing your world and experience to life in a way that’s one step closer to the real thing …

3D Camera Mode captures a rich, interactive spatial memory of the world by combining image and depth data through the iPhone X front-facing lens to reconstruct a 3D model that looks and feels like a miniature diorama of what the camera has seen. In Preview, you can rotate and wiggle your handset to change the perspective of the Snap, and so can the people you send it to (any device can view and change the perspective).

As far as the rollout of this feature is concerned, Snapchat says that they are coming this week to compatible devices which are iPhone X, iPhone Xs series and the iPhone 11 series.

Rolling out this week, Snapchatters with iPhone X and above will be able to create and share Snaps with 3D, and swipe on new 3D Effects, Lenses and Filters. Together they feel life-like and magical, changing in perspective and appearance based on how you interact with the phone when viewing them.

One thing to add here is that while you can only create this 3D selfie on iPhone X and above due to iPhone’s facial recognition sensors, you can view them on any Android or iPhone.
