    The twitch use-case is really neat! I hope there can be more contextual integration with such apps

Why create a dedicated hardware device (i.e. Facebook Portal, Echo Show, et al) when you can just launch a desktop video chat app with lenses for Mac and Windows?

Wicked smaaaht. Are Sponsored Lenses a part of the distribution too? Imagine a Twitch player with a huge following using a Sponsored Lense on an hour long feed. I can imagine Snap then charging advertisers some type of rate for that distribution or "air time" in the future.

I love how they aren't just an app, they are a "camera platform". Really excited to see what's next!

I'm surprised this didn't get more attention. Following their release of SnapKit earlier this year, this is their second big platform move.

Guys, sorry for the potentially stupid question, but do I need to have a Snapchat account (I don't) to use this or is it available for everyone?
