Spectacles have FINALLY arrived in Europe
The hard-done-by Snapchatters of Europe have waited long and hard for this moment. Snap’s Spectacles have, at long last, come to Europe. Took Snapchat long enough, mind you.
At 7 a.m. Friday morning, Snapbots landed in London, Paris, Barcelona and Venice, meaning European Snapchatters can ~finally~ get their hands on Spectacles. For those of us who don’t fancy wandering the streets in search of a little yellow bot, Spectacles are also now available for the very first time to all Europeans online at Spectacles.com.
Spectacles launched in the U.S. in late 2016, but this is the very first time they’ve been made officially available in Europe.
From 2 June, Spectacles are available to Snapchatters Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Spain, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden and the United Kingdom. But they don’t come cheap. You’ll have to cough up £129.99 (€149.99) for a pair.
For those not entirely familiar with the concept of a Snapbot, it’s basically a bright yellow vending machine that lands in random spots in cities. They are typically only present in each location for about one day at a time. A Spectacles-related geofilter will also be available on Snapchat when a Snapbot is nearby.
