Sick and tired of your current cameo selfie? Why not remove it? Keep on reading to find out how to delete your cameos on Snapchat.

In 2019, Snapchat released a fun new feature, the cameo. Cameos let Snapchatters create personalized video messages using some of Snapchat’s pre-made clips. The feature superimposes your face on a pre-created body, making you do all sorts of actions such as dancing, driving, and singing.

The technology is very slick and can recognize your facial features, allowing it to transform your expression to match the vibe of the video.

Whether you no longer want to use cameos or are unhappy with the selfie you have chosen, you may be looking to delete it. The good news is that this can be done quickly in a few simple steps. Let’s see how it’s done.
