Snapchat begins selling fun lenses


Emma Clark

Snapchat's latest update includes a new lens store, which will let you buy a variety of weird and wacky lenses for use in messages.

Snapchat launched Lenses in September, which enabled users to puke rainbows and take on demon forms. Now, it's going to start charging for effects like these with the launch of a dedicated lens store.

The store will feature 30 every day, which will cost €0.99 a pop. Once you buy one, it's yours forever.

Seven lenses will be made free every day on a rotating basis, so you'll get to try before you buy. And if you find one you really like, you can drop a little cash so that you can use it all the time.

This update is rolling out now, so you can expect more creative and wacky snaps to appear in your feed any day now.
