How to get Butterfly Lens on Snapchat?

Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging apps around at the moment. That’s not only because of the app’s gamification of messaging and privacy focussed features like disappearing messages but also because it’s a fully-fledged camera app in addition to being a messaging one. 

The app regularly gets new filters, called ‘lenses’. Some lenses are, of course, more popular than others as snaps featuring these lenses go viral. In this article, we’re talking about how you can get the butterfly lens on Snapchat.

Unlocking Snapchat lenses

Snapchat lenses don’t just appear on your phone out of the blue. There are hundreds of thousands of lenses out there, and users have to option to search and store their favourite ones for quick access when they need them. 

You can add the butterfly lens (or any other Snapchat lens) to your app in three ways. 

Using Snapcodes

Snapcodes are one of the easiest ways of sharing things on Snapchat, including profiles and lenses. It’s the same concept as scanning a QR code, except the whole experience is personalised for Snapchat. All you have to do is open the app and point the camera at the snapcode. A notification will appear at the bottom of your screen, and you can tap it to get to the lens.
