According to SnapChat, Snappables live right where Lenses do. It has among its marketing partners seven companies that include Avatar Labs, North Kingdom, MediaMonks, and Fishermen Labs, among others, to make augmented reality ads for brands.

Fight aliens, start a rock band, play basketball, and more - together with your friends, no matter where you are.

Ever since they introduced Lenses, their Augmented Reality masks, they have become a popular choice for their close to 160 million daily active users. Some Snappables let users challenge their friends to beat their high score, and some let users invite friends to multiplayer games. Control schemes will change depending on the game, with some titles offering traditional touch controls while others will be controlled by movement and still others will even be controlled by Snapchat users' facial expressions. The games are called Snappables and allow members to compete with friends in a series of different games. The games were included in the Lenses as well and the new Snappables feature could actually bring a more polished version of the previous games.

To get started, a user will need to tap on the Lens icon and then follow the on-screen directions. Some of the first games that appeared were an Asteroids space shooter-like game, bubble gum popping contest, a kiss-blowing game, egg catching competition and a dance party. The latest Snappables feature will be rolled out to Android and iOS devices by the end of this week, the company has confirmed. From the looks of things, Snappables will really deliver a new AR experience to users.

Snapchat has just announced Snappables.
