Popular photo-messaging app Snapchat will now let its users play as their “Snapchat Bitmoji” avatar in a wide variety of video games as the company has unveiled a Bitmoji for Games SDK that would let video game developers replace their characters with the app’s Bitmoji.

“The Bitmoji functionality will work by using the Snapchat app to scan an in-game code to link the game with your Snapchat account.

“Snap plans to support the functionality across games on PC, consoles, and mobiles. Previously, the company let other app developers import Bitmoji using Bitmoji Kit,” The Verge reported late on Thursday.

Snapchat is reportedly planning to launch more "Lenses" that will react to sounds over the coming weeks.
