The news means that from Monday, Snapchat’s ad partners, which include Amobee and VaynerMedia, will now be able to sell sponsored geofilters alongside full-screen video ads, according to Business Insider Australia.

Previously, sponsored geofilters were only able to be purchased using Snapchat’s self-service tool, which came to be in February last year.
