In a post, Snap said: “Today we’re excited to introduce a 3D Camera Mode that adds depth to your Snaps. Use it to create Snaps that capture spatial detail, changing in perspective and appearance based on how you move your phone when you view them. These new Snaps look different, act different, and feel different.”
The feature is linked to the recent release of Snapchat Spectacles 3 that let you take 3D images and video with the two attached cameras. The new 3D filters simply turn the cameras around to face you instead.
It marks another feature Snapchat has introduced to try and win back some of the market it lost to Instagram Stories, though the selfie aspect of Snapchat remains pretty darn popular. Snapchat will let you save your creations to the camera roll to share in other apps, too – though this is one of the main problems the company has where content created on its platform is not actually posted there.
