Snapchat lets you Face Swap with your camera roll, drops paid replays

TechCrunch TechCrunch 21/04/2016 Josh Constine

Snapchat is done selling you stuff. As of today, every snap can be replayed once, but you can no longer buy extra replays. That means people with more money can’t break the rules of Snapchat any more. Snapchat launched $0.99 replays on top of the one free one you got per day, but along with the shut down of the Lens store that launched in November and closed in January, Snapchat is refocusing on making money through ads.

You might miss those paid replays because Snapchat’s latest feature will make you do a double-take. After the success of its Face-Swap feature that exchanges your face with someone else in your photo or video, it’s now letting you Face-Swap with photos from your camera roll.

Tap the new Face-Swap Camera Roll Lens, hold down on your face, and Snapchat will scan your camera roll for faces and surface options for you to swap with. That means you can easily save photos as well as drawing or anything else that looks like a face, and then put that mug on as your own mask.

It’s terrifying, hilarious, smart, and sure to make the teens go crazy. Just please, no offensive black-face-swaps.
