This feature available on Snapchat opens up a huge path of innovative ideas because the one with whom you swap your face with can be a real world entity or anything else.
It is quite similar to the previous available lenses and filters which were available on Snapchat. You have to first make sure that you have got the image, with which you need to use Face Swap, inside the Camera Roll section of your device. Steps to be implemented next are:
- Install the updated version of the app on your device to use this feature.
- Facing the front cam of your phone, place a long press over your face for some time.
- The Snapchat app will scan your face and display all the editing features available on it. If this is not done properly, the app will not be able to detect the user’s face, and you may have to re-position yourself inside the app screen.
- Search among the available lenses and move to the last one in them. The Face Swap icon will be in a purple color.
- Now, the Snapchat app will show the pictures available in the gallery of your phone and start to detect any faces if found.
- Select the proper image with which you would like to swap your face; this will activate the Face Swap feature.
- Press the purple icon on the screen which will click the photo and thus we have done successful swapping.
The part where images are displayed from your Camera Roll option, is the problematic one. When the pictures are loaded, Snapchat will automatically search for faces and will display only those photos. You have to keep on swiping towards the right side for loading other pics to use for Face Swap feature. If by chance you swipe faster than the normal speed, the pics will be reset with all the pics changing from their previously arranged order.
This can be used on iOS phones only till now. Hope it reaches other phones too. One important thing found in this update is the removal of the paid replays. Now the snaps which are expired one can be watched once only, for free. It seems the Snapchat Team didn’t get most revenue with this in-app purchase feature. They found the advertising way as the best source of income.
