Snapchat recently released their newest Snapchat lens that is sure to make everyone want to use the app even more! It’s called the Butterflies Lens and it allows users to take pictures or videos with butterflies flying around in the background, adding color and life to the picture or video. The best part about this new lens is that it’s free, unlike all of Snapchat’s other lenses that you have to pay for! Let’s learn how to unlock the Butterflies Lens on Snapchat so you can enjoy this unique snapchat feature too!
How to access the lenses
To unlock a lens, open your Memories section and swipe right until you see one of your saved lenses. You’ll know that it’s unlocked because there will be an unlocked tag next to it. If you don’t want to save your lens, then open up Memories, swipe right until you get to lenses and start scrolling through them like normal—the lens that is unlocked will stay unlocked. It can only be used once every 24 hours. After that, you have to wait another day for it to reset before using it again.
How to use them
This lens lets you take selfies of yourself—but with a twist. The butterflies that surround your face are captured with a fish-eye lens, meaning you’ll look gorgeous and otherworldly in every snap. Pair it with an action shot of your day (perhaps you’re having coffee, or checking out a new shop) to let followers know what you were up to while they were seeing all those glittery butts clogging their newsfeeds. It’s also worth noting that using Snapcodes is an excellent way to grow your Snapchat following; they act as unique QR codes that people can scan using their phones, allowing them to follow your account in seconds (and opening up an opportunity for more meaningful engagement). Now go take some amazing selfies!
Other fun things you can do with lenses
Just when you thought you’d seen every filter imaginable, Snapchat launched a new way to use lenses: underwater. In order to unlock these filters and allow them to record your snaps, you’ll need to visit locations of interest—such as, say, an aquarium or water park. Once there, snap a pic or record a video (up to 10 seconds long) and swipe over your face until you see an underwater-themed lens (you may have to pan around your surroundings first). And in case it isn’t clear by now: The rules for creating awesome stories are basically exactly the same as above. I know—I can’t believe it either!
