Third, the Spectacles are able to take both photos and videos.

The new version of Snap's Spectacles can also be ordered with prescription or polarized lenses. The new models are also water-resistant and lighter. With almost all of the 3.5 billion Snaps captured every day, taken on a phone, the company wants to take a leadership role as camera technology evolves, he said. And yeah, there's no telling just how well the new Spectacles will sell, but here's to them doing okay. The glasses also come equipped with two microphones to capture more natural sound.

Snapchats new Spectacles which were earlier priced at $129.99 and sadly never made its way to India, will now cost $20 more in the USA and will be available exclusively on Snap's website beginning 26 April.

The primary function of the glasses is to take video from the perspective of the wearer.

According to him, the company is aware that augmented reality had a low success rate in this day and age, and that there are a lot of hardware restrictions like the design, batteries, screens, etc.

Despite some embarrassing missteps&n bsp;this past year, Snap remains a formidable rival to Instagram and other popular apps, according to eMarketer analyst Debra Aho Williamson.

The first refinement was to create a slimmer design.

Unlike version 1, v2 fixes numerous pain points of the original Spectacles.

With a relatively abysmal first outing, one may question why the company felt the need to update its product and try and reintroduce it on the consumer market.
