Snapchat Lenses are one of the app’s biggest attractions, allowing users to augment their appearance in selfies. And hot on the heels of Snapchat’s cat face lenses comes the dog update. Dog selfies can feature fun Snapchat filters, with antlers, butterflies and pizza slices among the options.
The pet-friendly lenses have a small paw-print in the corner, which when pressed overlays comedy filters on your pet’s features.
The Snapchat cat equivalent proved popular upon its launch this autumn but left dog owners disappointed.
But the December update addressed the imbalance, adding a whole host of options for hounds’ faces.
These Snapchat lenses have been added to the carousel featuring the regular options.
Once you open the Snapchat filter up, users will be prompted Try With a Cat or Dog.
Some Snapchat lenses offer classic accessories such as spectacles, while others incorporate new looks.
The pizza lens puts your dog’s face in the middle of dish and gives its owner a pair of pepperoni-spotted ears.
Snapchat introduced the feline filter version in October with the statement: “Lenses. For cool cats and their cool cats. Try them meow.”
Snapchat also updated its logo to a Ghost Cat to honour the occasion.
Although initially launched with only three lenses, Snapchat has since expanded to the options available.
