In the next few weeks as the feature launched user will have an option of selection of 150 Cameos to choose from, with more coming soon. Once the user pressed the Cameos button, take a selfie and pick a scene they like to use. According to Snap, if your friend has set up the feature too, they’ll be able to co-star in two-person Cameos.”
