snapchat lenses cannot be found on snap camera??

  • Hi גרה פיינבוך, 

    Not every Lens is configured for Snap Camera by the creator. When you create a Lens, the creator can choose to have the Lens only work in the app. For more information on how Lenses are configured for Snap Camera, see this guide

  • Neha thank you for your quick reply...
    unfortunately the link doesn't work.

    it was in the latest update of snapchat when ( i ) icon appeared on snapchat lenses.
    now you can view snapchat  profile and see all the lensses that was created by snapchat.
    but no matter what lens link i use that was created by snapchat, snap camera cannot find it.
    specifically lenses that was created by snapchat. on snapchat profile ( i )

    sorry for bothering you with this...

  • Hi,

    Here is link Neha intended to send

    But such links of Snap made lenses you posted can't be opened in Snap Camera because of technical restrictions, Snap Camera can open only community and subset of Snap lenses manually enabled which you can find in Snap Camera (as for example )

    You can distinguish unlockable vs not unlockable in Snap Camera links by icon + lens name which not unlockables lack.
