With the inaugural round of Wimbledon, one of the four major tournaments of professional tennis, Snapchat launches a tennis mini-game with enhanced realities starting Monday.
The game challenges global users and their 3D Bitmoji avatars to superstar Serena Williams' digital doppelganger, which is Snapchat's first celebrity partnership for an interactive 3D Bitmoji lens.
"As of today, everyone can play tennis against Serena Williams … on Snapchat" Tweet John Brennan, Head of Worldwide Sports Partnerships at Snap, Inc "Tap on the front-facing camera to activate an interactive 3D bitmoji lens and see how many points you can score against the GOAT. "
To access the experience, users must associate their Bitmoji account with Snapchat. With the virtual court and the players, the players can then press the "PLAY" button to start. When Williams serves the ball, players can move their cartoon character to the spot on the field the ball is on, and their avatar will swing to the ball. Players can earn up to four stars with continued volleys, with the speed increasing with each level.
