The camera sunglasses will continue to be priced at $149.99, including charging case and cable, and they will be available in the following frame/lens combinations: onyx/moonlight, sapphire/twilight and ruby/daybreak.

Snap Inc.’s new hands-free camera adds the ability to capture photos—the first release only captured videos—quicker transfer of HD content via Wi-Fi, water-resistant construction, a sleeker frame and more options for frame colors and lens shades.

Snapchat also announced that people will gain the ability over the next few weeks to delete messages that they have sent to friends in individual or group chats.

Entire conversations or specific parts of conversations can be deleted, regardless of whether those messages have been saved or viewed, enabling users to avoid sharing spoilers or to correct typos.

To use this feature, users can navigate to the conversation that contains the message they wish to delete, press and hold the message or chat media (stickers, audio and voice notes, memories) and select delete.

Friends who are part of the chat conversation will be alerted that a message was deleted. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
