Want to revamp your Snapchat cameo selfie? Well, we think it’s time for a fresh new look! Keep on reading our guide to learn how to change a cameo on Snapchat.
The cameo feature on Snapchat allows its users to add their faces on a range of different bodies and animals to create fun videos and gifs. These videos can then be shared with your friends in the chat function of the app. There even is an option to include your friends’ faces too with the fantastic two-person feature.
If you would like to update the current selfie you are using or edit who can access your cameos, you’re in the right place. Thankfully, these are not difficult tasks. Scroll down to find out how it is done.
Change your cameo selfie in a chat
You can change your cameo selfie directly in a Snapchat chat. Let’s launch the app and get started.
Open a chat
Once you are logged in to Snapchat, navigate to your chats and tap any chat to open it.
Tap on the face icon
From here, click on the smiley face icon on the bottom bar to bring up stickers, Bitmoji images, emojis and more. You will now want to select “Cameos” shown by the outline of a face and “+” icon.
Long press on a cameo
Scroll through the cameo options and find a cameo you would like to use. Here you will want to long-press on the clip to pull up the options menu.
Select “New Selfie”
In the pop-menu, select “New Selfie”. This will redirect you to the selfie camera page where you can now take a new picture for your cameo.
Once you have taken a new selfie, your new cameo will be created. Now it is time to make its debut!
You can repeat these steps at any time to change your cameo.
Change your cameo selfie in settings
There is a second method to update your cameo using Snapchat’s settings.
In the app, navigate to the profile icon in the top-left of your screen. This will bring up your Bitmoji, username and story settings. From here, tap on settings represented by the ‘cog’ icon in the top-right side of your screen.
In settings, scroll down to “Cameo” in the “My Account” section. This will bring up an array of editing options for your cameo.
To change your cameo picture you will want to select “Change My Cameos Selfie”. When you select this it will bring up the selfie window, letting you retake your picture, automatically updating your cameo for you.
If you no longer want your cameo there is also the option to delete it. Simply click “Clear My Cameo Selfie” to remove it.
Change cameo access
If you would like to control who can use your cameos to create memorable two-person clips, you will need to alter your cameo settings. Bare in mind, in order for both you and your friend to appear in a cameo, you both must have these settings enabled. Here’s how it works.
Navigate to your profile by clicking on your icon in the top-left corner of your screen. Here select the settings icon represented by the ‘cog’.
Edit cameo settings
Scroll to the “My Account” section of your settings and select “Cameos”. In this tab you will want to tap on “Use My Cameos Selfie” and “See My Cameos Selfie in Ads”. Here you can decide who has access to your cameos.
In both sections you will have three options: “Everyone”, “My Friends” and “Only Me”. Select whichever option suits you and you are done! – It is that easy.
That’s all there is to it! In just a few taps, you can easily change and edit your cameos to give your Snapchat a fun personalized touch. If you found this article useful, be sure to read our other Snapchat articles here on PC Guide.
