3D Face Mask Generator
Oh and by the way, Snap just launched a 3D face mask generator. This lets users create their own viral self-expression Lenses using Gen AI and Snap’s face mesh capabilities. You can bring your creative visions to life in seconds. This is gonna make the lens creation process so much more accessible.
Now, despite having some staff reductions, Snap’s got 330,000 developers actively building on their AR platform. They’ve created almost 3.5 million Lenses. That’s a pretty vibrant ecosystem they’ve got going on.
And Snap’s really putting the spotlight on AI, especially during their first-ever APAC AR Day in India. The CEO and Co-Founder of Snap, along with the APAC President, gave props to the Indian creator community for their contributions to the AR world. They’re both pretty hyped about the role AI is gonna play in breaking down creative barriers, especially in augmented reality.
