How to hide snapchat's ui and change lens's icon?

  • Those are called Snappables and that functionality is not available in Lens Studio.

    There is no way to really hide the phone's UI currently, however it is hidden when recording so if your game is short you could make it start when they start recording...which also adds the benefit of them recording their gameplay.

    For physical installations using the lens you could use the application Snap Camera on windows/mac to make a screen that's only the lens though.

  • What I mean that not hiding the phone's UI but the some of snapchat's ui. Like in this video:

    As you can see, the lens's icon will turn to the blue start button when the lens is loaded. After user click on start button, game start and some snapchat's ui like: search bar and list of lens icons will be hiden. All snapchap chat ui are just the exit and switch camera button.

    Here is my lens:

    As your answer, it  is Snappables and not available in Lens Studio yet, but how those lens in the youtube video can make it to be possible?

  • The lenses used in the video are Snappables. And I meant the Snapchat UI on the phone cannot be changed by Lens Studio.
