When Snapchat began allowing users to replay snaps for $1, we couldn’t in all probability see how any person can be right down to throw down that kinda money for one thing so… brief. In a new update rolling out now on Google Play, Snapchat has hatched a new scheme to additional monetize their (loose) products and services, this time with one thing a bit extra everlasting.
With Snapchat’s new “Lens Store,” users now be capable of shop the ones loopy 3D lenses that are on consistent rotation within the app (lengthy press your face in selfie mode to turn on them). There are nonetheless loose lenses to be had — 7 of them, actually — however so as to keep older ones and reuse them time and again, you’ll now need to pay up $1 in keeping with lens. Sounds affordable sufficient.
The transfer has strangely attracted some backlash on social media the place Snapchat has had no problem retweeting the faulty users voicing their disapproval. The loopy phase is that in point of fact, not anything has modified. Snapchat simply now supplies users the choice to re-use old lenses will have to they be prepared to pay up some money. We don’t see a unmarried factor incorrect with that.
Oh, yeah — Snapchat additionally brought “Official Stories” for tested (superstar) bills.
