Sunglasses and Snapchat for the Eclipse
Solar eclipse fans and viewers are in for a real treat from Snapchat: in addition to documenting the solar eclipse in its specifically curated story starting on Aug. 20, it’s going to even be releasing a set of eclipse-themed goodies for users to take pleasure in within the lead-up to the occasion. Beginning this weekend, Snapchat users will see the solar eclipse stickers, geofilters, and Actionmojiappear in their app.
Among the geofilters are unique to people who find themselves in the path of totality of the solar eclipse. However, on Aug. 21, at 4pm when the solar eclipse passes over you or your pals, they’re going to flip into a particular Actionmoji with sunglasses (remember: safety first!) on Snap Map. It’s also possible to observe the solar eclipse by testing hot spots glowing in red to see individuals’s snaps commemorating the event or in Snapchat’s “Our Story” particular on the solar eclipse. On Aug. 21, the story will swap from pre-solar eclipse snaps and content material to users viewing the solar eclipse. Ahead, try what the solar eclipse options will look like on Snapchat, and don’t miss out on the fun on Aug. 21!
