Samsung got into bed with Snapchat last year when it integrated Snap’s AR Lenses into the Galaxy A-series camera app and called the service ‘Fun Mode’. It looks to have been an excellent strategic decision, as Samsung has now revealed that Fun Mode has been used over 2.5 billion times. 

For those who’ve never experienced Fun Mode, it allows Galaxy A series users to take pictures and videos from the proprietary camera app, applying playful, quirky lenses to create any moment into a fun and unique content – perfect for sharing laugh with friends and as fun social media content.
