Snapchat has released a new range of dog-friendly lenses designed to make your good boy look as ridiculous as you do through a Snapchat lense. Not only that, but Snapchat is now much better at recognizing dog faces, meaning your doggo won’t feel left out.
They say, “A dog is for life, not just for Christmas.” And if you have accepted a dog into your life, there’s nothing better than making them look ridiculous. Now, thanks to Snapchat, you don’t even have to dress your canine friend up in actual costumes to do so.
Snapchat Humiliates Your Good Boy
You may have previously tried to use Snapchat lenses on your dog with varying degrees of success. However, until now, Snapchat lenses have not been designed to work with dog’s faces. Which seems a glaring oversight on Snapchat’s part. One it has thankfully rectified.
Now, Snapchat’s camera will recognize dog faces as well as human faces. This means you can point your smartphone at your doggo and make it look like an idiot. Which is something we doubt wolves ever expected when they first accepted food from humans.
To coincide with this update to its object recognition technology, Snapchat has released a handful of new lenses designed specifically for dogs. These Snapchat lenses for dogs include a pizza collar, antlers, a butterfly flapping its wings, and thick-rimmed glasses.
While we’re pretty sure your doggy friend won’t thank you for this humiliation, they’re dogs, so don’t have any say in the matter. And rest assured that if you’re in the frame with your dog Snapchat will also make something appear on your face too.
Dogs Are the New Internet Overlords
While cats were once the kings and queens of the internet, dogs have taken over of late. So, Snapchat is sensible to have responded to this trend by releasing lenses for dogs. Just remember that if you do make your dog look ridiculous, they may come back to haunt you.
Snapchat has had a tough time of it of late, leading to millenials moaning about Snapchat. However, all the while Snapchat is releasing new filters (for humans and dogs alike) people will keep using the app. And here’s our list of the best Snapchat filters to use.
