Every Merdeka, the spirit of patriotism fills the air throughout the country with numerous patriotic songs playing, flags waving and an overall feeling of pride for our beloved country.
...and to commemorate this year’s Independence Day, Snapchat has launched two Merdeka Lenses for Malaysians to proudly use to show their patriotism and wish their friends and family locally and abroad!
Snapchat’s first Official Lens Creator in Southeast Asia, Eswaran Mohan has also developed exclusive Lenses for this occasion that Snapchatters can enjoy!
Or if you’re feeling a little extra, take a step further by creating your own Malaysia-themed Lenses. You can do it easily with Lens Studio, and Snap’s free desktop app makes it possible for anyone to build AR Lenses!
Let your creativity go crazy by developing Lenses for games and quizzes! The platform offers a huge set of built-in design features including custom shaders and advanced tracking technology, to allow for endless possibilities and simple building of your own unique Lenses.
Snapchat also recently released its latest update, the Lens Studio 3.1 that lets you create Lenses that move with your entire body through a 2D Full Body Tracking, which means you’ll have the ability to track 18 joints and trigger effects based on those body movements - legs included!
So cool, right?
This feature will be especially useful as you level up your next dance challenge, workout tutorial, or whatever’s keeping you moving these days!
