The camera feature was introduced to the app in 2018. At the time, it was available to use with apps like Skype, YouTube, Zoom, and Google Hangouts. Available on both Mac and Windows operating systems, it allowed users to switch different filters during a video call or live stream.

On Twitter, the messaging app announced that it was now putting more focus on making access to Camera Kit more expansive for a better web experience.

“Hello, thanks for asking! We’re adjusting our web-based investments so that the AR community of creators and developers can focus on expanding access to Camera Kit for Web. Stay tuned for more information this year, and you can follow using Lenses on your computer with Snapchat for Web,” the app’s tweet read.

In early June 2022, Snapchat formally introduced Snapchat+, a premium membership for a $3.99/month service that will give users access to unique features, including the option to modify the app icon and the ability to know who has seen their stories again.

According to TechCrunch, the company had said that it is testing this capability, though it did not provide any information. You have now formally established Snapchat+. With additional nations to be added shortly, the new subscription plan will debut in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.
