Snap Inc. introduced a 3D Camera Mode to its Snapchat which will give the selfies a 3D look. The feature allows users to add depth to their Snaps which can be achieved by twisting their device. The feature uses the accelerometer of the phone to figure out how it’s being held.

Along with the 3D Camera Mode, the company also introduced new 3D effects which the user can choose by swiping on in the Filter Carousel. The effects and filters include confetti, light streaks, and different animations. The 3D Camera Mode and 3D effects together make the selfie life-like and look more appealing.

Users can save the 3D Selfie captured in Snapchat to the camera roll to use and share them elsewhere. Senior Manager at Snap Inc. Andrew McPhee said:

With the introduction of depth and interaction, Snaps can capture even more detail about how the world looks and how you feel. Together with our new 3D Effects, this feature adds a new layer of expression to bring your Snaps to life in a way that’s a step closer to the real thing.

Only iPhone X or newer are among the devices where users can use 3D Camera Mode to create 3D selfies and apply 3D effects, lenses, and filters. However, any iOS and Android devices will able to receive and view the selfies. The camera company mentioned that the feature would be available to “a handful of devices to start with,” it’s unclear whether the company will expand support to older devices later.
