Among the features included in the new update are 'lenses', which allow you to alter your face in a number of ways.

Of course, the lens that allows you to 'make yourself old' was the most discussed in the Independent.ie offices this morning so we decided to see what the team would look like in sixty years or so.

Snapchat rolls out new update and paid features - but are your pics at risk?  

We don't think we look too bad! Thoughts?

To use the new selfie filters, users place the phone on selfie mode, then hold down a finger on their face to make the options appear before snapping a pic. Users select one of the 'lenses' by selecting one from the row at the bottom of the screen.
