Better Snapchat AR Lenses are now available on the iPhone X

Компания Caviar представила три дизайна iPhone X для христиан

Apple announced exclusive AR Snapchat lenses for iPhone X at the launch of the event a year ago, and today Snapchat has finally released them globally for all iPhone X users.

As observed in the photos clicked, the TrueDepth-authorized AR masks are more tightly mapped to a user's facial topography than the usual Lenses providing. It looks like, slowly but surely, Apple's Animoji won't be the only feature or app taking advantage of the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera.

Now Apple harshly limits developer compatibility to TrueDepth.

Dissimilar to traditional Lenses that depend on information from a phone's 2D camera to identify ruling facial features, like a user's eyebrows and mouth, iPhone X Lenses tap into information generated by TrueDepth. All the credit goes to the TrueDepth front facing camera of the smartphone.

The same tech now powers these three new Snapchat Lenses that going by the images below, look surprisingly accurate.

Canadian PM: NAFT talks making progress
Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Mexican Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo, said a Canadian government source. He has pushed to have a new deal ready to unveil next week at the Summit of the America in Lima, Peru.

Snapchat is one of the first major apps to combine TrueDepth facial information since iPhone X launched in November. This new lenses will encourage more iPhone X users to make use of the Snapchat environment and this way they will be able to use the Snapchat's platform for more time.

It's worth remembering that, though the TrueDepth camera is used in both this case and for Face ID, there are different layers of security at work.

There was news that Apple might be sharing facial mapping data to develop these lenses further. On top of that, they'll reflect light a lot more realistically. This, according to The Verge, could mean that Snap is also not allowed to make use of this data for targeting ads.

We will probably see such lenses tailor made for the iPhone X in the future and could probably make Snapchat more interesting for the select few that own the iPhone X. Snapchat showed off how the developers of such popular applications can make use of new technologies.

The app is available now as a free download in the App Store.
