Snapchat users will soon be able to insert themselves into their favourite GIFs and videos, thanks to the new ‘Cameos’ feature.
Set to officially launch on 18 December, users simply take a selfie then select the clip they wish to add themselves to.
There will be an initial 150 different options to choose from.
“From Lenses to Bitmoji and everywhere in between, we’re always building fun new ways to express yourself in the moment. Now, we’re unveiling another feature to bring your conversations to life: Cameos,” said a Snap spokesperson.
“Cameos make you the star of your own short, looping videos that you can send to friends in Chat. Whether you’re feeling excited, exhausted, or just want to say hi, you can find the perfect Cameo for the moment. You can even customize the captions for certain Cameos to make them your own.”
The new feature was first spotted in France, where some users were able to test the feature.
