CAIRO, Jan.1 (SEE)- ”Snapchat” is adding a feature that connects its augmented reality camera interface to ”Amazon” for in-app shopping. Snapchat users will be able to take a photo of an object or scan a barcode and purchase it through ”Amazon”.
By pressing the screen while pointing the camera toward an object, such as name-brand sneakers or your friend’s fancy Bluetooth speakers, you’ll be redirected to an ”Amazon” pop-up. The pop up will show similar products available for purchase.
Months after launching face lenses designed for cats, ”Snapchat” has expanded the tool to include dogs. ”Snapchat rolled” out the cat specific version of the tool back in October, and even briefly changed its logo to a ‘ghost cat’ to mark the occasion.
Dog owners can now add fun filters to their pup’s snaps too. This means you can now use the pet friendly lenses which have a small blue paw print in the corner to overlay everything from over-sized glasses to a pizza pie on your dog’s face.
Once you open the filter up you’ll be prompted, ‘Try with a cat or dog”.
