Last week, Verizon Up and Maroon 5 launched a first-of-its-kind immersive augmented reality karaoke experience on Snapchat. The experience was available at Maroon 5 concerts last week (geo-fenced), but nationally one day only on Friday, June 15.

The Maroon 5 lens is the first as part of its music program, and Verizon will roll out additional lenses at future concerts for other Verizon Up artists.

At Maroon 5 shows in San Antonio (6/12), New Orleans, LA (6/14), Tampa, FL (6/16) and Sunrise, FL (6/17), the Verizon Up Snap lens contained lyrics for the first two songs of their set. Fans sang along to the lyrics on their phone screens while recording themselves for a Snap.

On Friday, June 15, Snapchat users were able to access the limited edition lens on their app and sing along to Maroon 5’s hit new single, “Girls Like You.”
