Say Hello to the Snapchat Camera on the Lock Screen of Google's Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro

We’re always looking for ways to innovate around our Camera and help our community Snap everyday moments, as they happen. That’s why we’re excited to announce ‘Quick Tap to Snap’ for Google’s Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
For the first time ever, we’re making the Snapchat Camera accessible directly from a phone lock screen. With Quick Tap to Snap, you can capture moments quickly before they disappear.
Here’s how it works: By tapping the back of your phone, you can create Snaps and play with Lenses directly from the lock screen, without having to unlock your phone. Once a Snap is ready to share, log in to your phone’s lock screen to directly unlock the full app experience.
But wait, there’s more: We’re teaming up with Google to launch exclusive augmented reality Lenses, as well as supporting some of Google’s Pixel features, like Ultra Wide Angle and live translation, within Snapchat’s camera and chat on Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. You can take wide angle Snaps and also talk to your friends in more than 10 languages, and translate conversations in real-time.
These features, along with Quick Tap to Snap, will launch over the coming months. We’re so excited to work with our mobile partners to bring even more experiences to Snapchatters around the world!
