Snap employee (and former Verge creator) Ellis Hamburger tweeted that restaurant homeowners may just create their very own lenses and share the Snapcode to them on their menu. Consumers may just then view the meals ahead of ordering in AR. the only option to retrieve a friend’s lens is via scanning its Snapcode, which necessarily works like a QR code in Snapchat. The Snapcode is practicable for a 12 months after it ’s created, so users can free up it more than one occasions.
