To commemorate Friendship Day, Snapchat has released new Lenses or filters that allow users to send virtual hugs, funny moments, and other reactions to their pals on the site. Friendship Day is observed on the first Sunday in August, which this year falls on August 1.
The Lenses were allegedly created to enable friends to easily express themselves and create great moments together. Snapchat is known for releasing new filters in conjunction with forthcoming festivals and events, and the Friendship Day Lenses are no exception.
Users can access these Lenses by scanning the 'Snap' code in the image below with their Snapchat camera app. For a limited time, all four of these Lenses can be unlocked, spanning from 24 to 48 hours. The Lenses enable a variety of games to be played with the camera. This is quite typical of what other Snapchat AR-driven Lenses have to offer.
Snapchat has added a feature to its profile that allows users to see a three-dimensional depiction of themselves. Snapchat's profiles have also been given a makeover, allowing users to choose from over 1,200 different body postures, facial expressions, gestures, and backgrounds to better personalize their digital avatars.
Peace signs, prayer hands, gorgeous beaches, and animal print backdrops will be available for users to match their 3D Bitmoji with their mood. Snapchat users will be able to see increased features on their customized avatar, including garment textures and distinctive decorations from their favorite fashion labels, thanks to Pixar-quality 3D capabilities, according to the business.

What are the best ways to use the new Snapchat Friendship Day Lenses?
Switch to the back camera on your Snapchat app.
Point the screen to one of these codes by tapping on it. A scan should be performed by the camera. It will show that a new Lens has been discovered and unlocked for a period of 24 to 48 hours, depending on the Lens.
That's all there is to it; now interact with the Lense and put it to the test in advance of Friendship Day.
