Introducing Cameos on Snapchat

Introducing Cameos on Snapchat

Middle East, 10 December 2019: Snapchat is introducing Cameos, where you become the star of short, looping videos that you can customize with your own face. They’re great for striking up new conversations or making responses to your friends personal, dynamic, and fun. Whether you’re excited, in love, bummed, or just want to say hi, there’s a Cameo for every mood.

Starting 18th December, they’ll roll out globally and can be found in the Chat sticker bar. If your friends have also set them up, you’ll see options featuring you two together – the ultimate duet. And, many can include your own text so you can write the script! Snapchat is starting with 150, available on iOS and Android, and will be adding more each week.

With Cameos, Snapchat is working on ways to help its community express themselves, have fun, and keep in touch with their closest friends.

Here’s how to get started once they launch on the 18th December:

Create Your Cameo Selfie
To make and send Cameos, you have to first take a selfie. You can change your selfie later, or clear it.
