Snapchat’s New Feature Takes Face Swapping To Whole New Levels

We can probably all agree that Face Swap is the best Snapchat update ever, but the company has gone one step further to make it even better.

With its latest iOS update released on Thursday, Snapchat now allows you to face swap with a photo from your phone’s camera roll.


The new feature will allow users to literally Face Swap with anything so long as you can screen shot it, which could make for some pretty interestig swaps.

The same update brings with it the removal of Snapchat’s pay-to-replay feature, and will instead allow users to replay any snap once for free.

It’s a (welcomed) step back from the previous feature that the company introduced late last year, allowing three additional replays of a snap for $0.99.


It looks like the company is moving away from user payments as a form of revenue, as it’s gradually been removing its paid-for features, including a store for buying new filters. Instead, the company is looking to make its revenue by offering marketing deals like sponsored lenses.

The new Face Swap feature is enabled through an update and is already available on iOS now. It appears to be rolling out on the Google Play store.

The original Face Swap already saw a ton of creative uses for the feature, so the ability to swap your face with literally anything will definitely send the Internet into a frenzy.

We can’t wait to see what people will come up with.
