So first, make sure that you are properly connected to the internet, or your mobile Wi-Fi connection is good.

Close and Open the App

Update the App

Before you start to blame Snapchat, make sure that the issue is not from the app.

If you are using outdated Snapchat, then you can’t get your hands on the latest features. This is the reason why you don’t have cameos on Snapchat.

So update the Snapchat app, and later on, you will see the cameos option.

You can update the app from the play store (Android) and App Store (IOS).
