Scan Utility Lenses

Scan Utility Lenses are AR experiences that detect, learn, and provide contextual information about specific objects in the world around us.

When Snapchatters trigger a Scan, our camera will automatically detect if a Scan Utility Lens can provide more context. For example, when users Scan a dog, Scan will surface up not only dog Lenses, but also the dog’s breed.

Snapchatters can also navigate directly to the left side of the Scan Carousel to explore all the available Scan Utility Lenses.
