When the iPad first came out, people looked kinda ridiculous using it out and about.
That doesn’t quite compare to Snapchat’s new AR games feature, “Snappables,” which consists of games that let you control what’s happening using your face.
As witnessed in the Snappables trailer, you can fight aliens in an Space Invaders-style game by moving your head around, or pump iron at the gym with your eyebrows. You can also invite friends on Snapchat to play along in multiplayer games.
There are very few of us with the confidence to play Snappables in public, but at least Snap is encouraging you to try.
Snappables will start rolling out on iOS and Android globally this week. They’ll be accessible from the lens carousel, but to the left of the capture button. New Snappables will release every week.
Like Messenger’s Instant Games, Snappables is certainly a nice-to-have, but is likely not a killer feature that will attract people onto the platform. Unless you’re really into pulling faces in public.
