Snapchat has gained a new feature that lets you draw in three dimensions using Augmented Reality (AR) technology. You can add mirror strokes on selfies with the front camera or use the rear camera to draw on objects with depth, similar to traditional Windows Paint. This is currently available for iPhone users running iOS 8 or higher. On Android, the tool should be released in the coming months.

You need to have the latest version of the app installed on your phone. Check out how to update your apps.
