Exciting times for Snapchat fans!

Snapchat has officially introduced a 3D Camera Mode that adds depth to its users Snaps.

"Use it to create Snaps that capture spatial detail, changing in perspective and appearance based on how you move your phone when you view them. These new Snaps look different, act different, and feel different," Snapchat said in a recent blog post.

According to The Verge Snap fans with ". . . an iPhone X or newer can use '3D Camera Mode' to capture a selfie and and apply 3D effects, lenses, and filters to it. People who receive or take these Snaps, even if they don’t have an iPhone X, can move their phone around to get a better sense of the dimensions."

The story-sharing platform also noted they're introducing new 3D Effects that users can swipe on in the Filter Carousel.

"Together they feel life-like and magical, bringing your world and experience to life in a way that's a step closer to the real thing."
