If you are a Snapchat addict, here is how you can use and change lenses and filters in Snapchat group chats.
Snapchat is a fun way for expressing yourself with friends and family but it can get boring without new lenses and filters to try. Fortunately, the platform now has over 100,000 lenses in its lenses store. Users can try them out and save them for using them in their daily use.
There is a wide variety of lens categories that users can browse through, including flower crown royalty, celebrity face-swaps, puppies, or even babies! The platform also allows users to design their own lenses and share them with other users. Snapchat also allows iOS users to use the AR bar to scan codes and learn more about their surrounding world.

- Click on the video call option in the top right corner of the screen.
- The call will be placed and users will start joining in.
- Once everyone has joined, tap on your camera icon to load filters.
