Snapchat rolling out new ‘Cameos’ feature this December

Feeling cheerful and want to let the world know in a quirky, forever-looping video? Snapchat's upcoming new feature will let you do just that.

The new Cameos feature is coming out just in time for Christmas, and it will let users star in their very own emotive looping video – including being rooster to wake up your pals or letting them know you’ll be there soon, via pink flamingo.

Launching in the Middle East and around the world on Wednesday December 18 on iOS and Android devices, Snapchat aficionados can find the new feature in the Chat Sticker section.

All the soon-to-be stars have to do is take a selfie, and the video will do the rest of the job. That’s not all, as users will also be able to make their own scripts.

Have friends that have set up the update? Cameos will let you do the ultimate duet, as it allows two people to star in the videos.

Here’s a pro tip from Snapchat: users can choose from different Cameo categories at the bottom of the screen by typing words or phrases such as ‘hey,’ ‘yes’ or ‘lol’. Type in your mood.

Snapchat will start off with 150 different filters to use, and will continue to add more each week after its launch. Find out more by heading to
