As for non-skippable ads, Digiday reports Snapchat plans to test a new ad-format in its mobile apps for its TV-style Snapchat Shows content like the Second Chance reality show.

According to the Wired, these new Lenses are called Snappables. These are created to let you play augmented reality games with friends - without having to leave the Snapchat app.

Snapchat is already one of the most popular messaging services out there, offering ephemeral messaging, Stories, and even easily digestible shows. These can warp your face using augmented reality (AR). Snappables invite you to become a part of another world and then share that world with your friends.

Snapchat is taking the selfie game to the next level by launching Snappables, AR selfie games that will use touch, motion and facial expressions to interact with the game and more.
