Despite Snapchat’s rapid rise into the social media mainstream, it’s always had a reputation for being a little bit unintuitive.

Following user feedback and competition from Instagram Stories, Snapchat updated its user interface at the end of 2017 to make things a little simpler to use, and we’re here to walk you through it.

One of the most confusing things to new Snapchat users is how to access these lenses.

Turn the camera so your face is on the phone's screen as if you were to take a selfie, then tap and hold on your face until a mesh appears then release.

One of these was to draw a larger distinction between professional and social content.

The app will still open into the camera, but now swiping right from the camera will bring you to your “Friends” screen.

This will take you to the 'additional services' part of the settings menu where you can tick the filters box.

Note that you'll need to enable location to be able to switch them on and for some to work properly.

Instead of offering the same range of lenses on a day-to-day basis, the selection is updated regularly, removing the oldest Snapchat lens and replacing it with a brand new one.

Don't worry, though - if you did buy any lenses, these will still be permanently available to you.

This separation of your personal social content from the wider social media stream draws a line between the different types of content that snapchat has become famous for.
