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.

Photo-messaging app Snapchat has announced a new 3D Camera Mode that will let users make and share images with diorama-like depth effects.

The feature will only be available to users with an iPhone X and above as it uses the tech used by the True Depth camera, but any Android or iOS device will be able to receive and view the creations.

The 3D selfies captured in Snapchat can be shared on the app or saved to a user’s camera roll and shared elsewhere. Sharing outside the app will take away the ability for people to move their phone around to change the image’s perspective, The Verge reported on Tuesday.
