In a blog post about the new feature, Snapchat names the 10 major cities across the globe that are now marked their own special set of geo-stickers users can access when visiting these cities.
Among the lucky cities to get the new geo-filter stickers are Paris, London and New York. San Paulo, Brazil also makes the list in advance of the 2016 Summer Olympics, which kick off Aug. 5.
