Admit it: Snapchat has overtaken a lot of our lives.

You all know what it’s like to find yourself going through all your friends and the randoms who added you Snapchat stories, when you’re bored at work finished after a long day.

Some of you also know how Snapchatting every moment from your night out gets on your mate’s nerves…

Well, Snapchat is about to change the game entirely and it might make your friends a whole lot more accepting of your Snapchat documentary making hobbies.

First off, Snapchat isn’t called Snapchat anymore.

WTF, right? The company is changing its famous name from Snapchat Inc. to Snap Inc. Obviously we’re all so lazy now that we have to shorten every word possible.

The company decided to change because the Snapchat app is now not the only product they have.

Snapchat, sorry Snap, has just launched it’s new product: Spectacles. AKA a pair of sunnies with built-in video camera capabilities.

The sunnies come in three colours, have a 115 degree view, are accompanied by a charging case, have a battery life of about a day’s worth of Snaps and a LED indicator to let others know when you’re filming. The camera records 10 second videos, which then send over to your phone via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, and are saved in your Snapchat app.

The realm of Snapchatting has just stepped up to a whole new level.

Imagine the possibilities! The GoPro better watch out…

They aren’t the prettiest sunnies in the world, but Snapchat refers to them as a toy so they can get away with them being kinda ugly AF.

News hasn’t yet surfaced on how much moolah the sunnies will set you back, or when they’re going to be made available, but we’re sure the wait won’t be too long!

The future is now. Marty McFly was a little off, but we’re getting there.
