Snappables live within Snapchat's Lens Carousel to the left side of the capture button. World and Face Lenses are on the right. Users can control Snappables with motion, touch and facial expressions. 

Some Snappables act as portals to virtual worlds, while others are multiplayer games. Users can choose a Snappable Lens and invite friends to compete in games or participate in experiences, including basketball, rock band and alien warfare. 

Snapchat will roll out Snappables to iOS and Android devices globally this week, and new Snappables will be released every week.
