In 2017, Snapchat introduced world-facing Lenses as a way to add your own creativity to the world around you and express yourself with your friends.

Over the past two years, world Lenses have evolved from “placing” a character or object in the world seen through the Snapchat camera, to turning the sky into the sea or transforming the world’s most iconic landmarks -- all to help our community augment the space around them and learn about the world.

At the same time, Snap has also continued to innovate and push the boundaries of what’s possible with a mobile camera - through Lenses powered by machine learning, such as the Baby and Time Machine Lenses.

Ground Segmentation Lenses are a natural evolution for Snap in understanding what the camera can see and helping our community share stories with their friends in ways that haven't been possible before.
