How to Change Cameo Picture on Snapchat for Android and iPhone
Since users often want to change their Cameos, Snapchat has simplified this process. Now, you can do it whenever you like.
Once you make the selfie you like, you can save it and use it in future Cameos. When it’s time to change your Cameo, just follow these steps:
- Open the Snapchat app.
- Enter one of the chats.
- Tap on the smiley face icon.
- Tap on the Cameo icon at the bottom of your screen.
- Long-press the cameo you’d like to use.
- Choose Create My Cameo.
- Take the photo and tap Create my Cameo.
Now you can use your new cameo on Snapchat.
How to Change Cameo Friend on Snapchat for Android and iPhone
If you can’t have a shared photo with some of your friends, Snapchat allows you to feature friends in unforgettable two-person Cameos. Not only that, but you can also choose among dozens of backgrounds and then simply add your friend’s selfie to create something unique.
You can choose with whom you want to share your Cameos, but they have to enable you to use theirs. Here’s how the process works:
- Go to My Profile and tap on Settings.
- Under MY ACCOUNT, find and tap on Cameos.
- Find the Who Can and tap on Use My Cameo Selfie.
- You can decide whether Everyone, My Friends, or Only Me has access to your Cameos.
Depending on your choice, you’ll be able to feature your friends in Cameos and vice versa. But if you have blocked someone on Snapchat (or vice versa), the two of you won’t be able to create a two-person Cameo.
How to Delete Your Cameo
Sometimes, we can use one Cameo too often and realize that it’s time to remove it. When that happens, you may decide to delete it. Here’s how:
- Open your Snapchat app.
- Tap on your profile photo and tap Settings.
- Under MY ACCOUNT, click on Cameos.
- Tap Clear My Cameos Selfie and confirm by tapping Clear.
You can also hide your Cameo selfies from everyone if you’d like to get back to them later. Here’s how you can make them private:
- Open Snapchat.
- Find Settings and tap on Cameos.
- Find the Who Can… section and tap on Use My Cameos Selfie. Here, you can choose Only Me, and nobody else will be able to access your cameos.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you have more questions about Snapchat, we’ve included more answers here!
What is a Snapchat Cameo?
A Snapchat Cameo is simply a selfie but with a background. Essentially, you are the cameo in a scene or with your face on an object. Of course, if you have your account set to allow others to use your cameo (as explained above), your friends can add it to their Story too!
The feature is just another fun take on Snapchat’s already fantastic camera/filter lineup.
Can I stop someone from using my cameo?
Yes, but that depends on your privacy settings. If you’ve set your ‘Who can’ settings to ‘Only Me’, then no one can use your cameo.
Of course, as explained above, you can also let only your friends use your cameo or everyone, depending on how confident you are.
Be the Star of Your Profile
Cameos are an excellent way to express yourself or bring your conversations to life. They’re similar to Bitmoji, but they use your real face to make GIF-like videos of your reactions andThey’rens.
