Accessing GPS data for Snapchat


Hi, I'm working on an Lens where you can see some specific structures in an open square using Snapchat. Im looking for something similar to Spectacle's location triggers but for Snapchat. From what I could find, snapchat supposedly can't access GPS info bc of privacy issues but when I use it in my phone it has permits to share my location. How can I access that info from Lens studio? Thanks!

    Hi Tomas,

    Snapchat does not currently provide a way for Lens creators to access GPS information from within Lens Studio. If you want to create a Lens that is triggered by a specific location, one possibility you could consider is using the Snap Map feature in Snapchat. The Snap Map allows users to share their location with their friends, and you can create a Lens that is triggered when a user's location is within a certain distance of a specific location on the map.
