The desktop Snapchat lens includes World Lenses & an AR filter to bring graphics to real via the camera. Users can download the app from Lens Studio website.

In order to create the hype toward this innovative launch, Snap Inc is going to host a Lens Studio Challenge in 2018 wherein people can show off their AR creations among a host of other users.   

Back in September 2015, Snap launched its machine learning-based lenses offering an exciting way for users to share their images with terrifying effects painted on their face. After than Snapchat sponsored Lenses for advertisers followed by World Lenses to add on funky graphics to their images. Snap also added 3D Bitmoji to the World Lenses mix, a few months back.
