Snapchat firstly introduced the scan feature two years before. With this feature, users can simply point their phones at objects and know details about them. Now, the company had made a change to the Snapchat Scan feature by adding a scan button front and center to increase the functionality.
In a press release, the company said, “When people think of ‘scanning’, they think of QR codes. Scan started that way, too, by asking Snapchatters to ‘Scan a Snapcode’ to unlock unique AR experiences. Over time, however, we realised that Scan and by extension the Snapchat Camera — it’s a bridge for your digital and physical world.”
How Next-Generation Scan Feature Works?
Through this new update, Snapchat scan permits users to scan several elements, including plants, clothing, and food items, etc. The company announced that the feature is only available for iOS users and Android users can enjoy the feature in the next few weeks.
The next-generation scan feature will help in choosing the right lens at the right time faster and easier than before. Moreover, the feature also recommends different ways of using the camera including Camera Shortcuts.
The scan feature includes a dog scanner which will let you identify more than 400 dog breeds and a plant scanner that will identify 90 per cent of all plants and trees. In addition to this, it will also feature a car scanner which will help you know the car model, make, price, and reviews of over 450 cars.
