How Does Snapchat Work?
Snapchat is available both for iOS and Android users for free. Just go to your app store, find Snapchat and click download. After downloading, simply choose your desired Snapchat username and password.
Once you’re logged in, you’re ready to get started. Let’s see how you can post something on Snapchat:
- Tap the Camera button to take a snap.
- Hold on to it to make a video.
- Check out the tools to make snaps more interesting.
- Select the friends you want to send your snaps to.
- Tap the Send button.
Now you know the basics. But did you know that there are hidden Snapchat features and hacks that’ll make your snaps even more interesting?
Hidden Features and Hacks
Snapchat is known for hidden features and hacks that are difficult to figure out. One such feature is the transparent effect.
Have you seen that recent snap with cool, transparent colors? Want to know how to make your own transparent-looking photo and discover what other hidden gems Snapchat hides? We’ve got you covered.
First things first, you need to take a snap of something. When you’re satisfied with it, click on the sticker feature. Now scroll down and find the emoji or the sticker you like.
You’ll probably want to enlarge the selected emoji or sticker to fit the screen as required. Imagine where you’d like the photo to be transparent and enlarge it accordingly.
Then you should move your finger to the trash can button. Hold your finger really close to it and you’ll see your photo become transparent! Finally, click the send button while holding down the post. And that’s it! You’re ready to send your cool transparent photo to your friends.
What makes Geofilters so interesting and unique is that you have to be at the specific location at a certain time to be able to use them. These filters show information about your current location, weather, info about a local event, etc.
They can be used to promote your personal special events like birthdays or weddings or to promote a business.
Follow these steps to apply geofilters:
- Take a Snap of something you like.
- Swipe to the left to see the geofilters of the area you’re in.
- Make sure your location services are enabled.
- Find the geofilter of the area you’re in.
- Tap the Send button.
If there aren’t geofilters in your area, you can also create one easily. Go to the camera screen and find the ghost icon. Tap the settings and select ON-Demand Filters.
Once you do this, you’ll be able to select the theme, date, time and location of the geofilter.
Change the Speed of Your Videos
You may have seen videos of people doing yoga in fast motion or videos of dogs running really slowly. There’s a feature that allows you to create these kinds of snaps, but it’s not well-known to many people. This hidden feature allows users to make their videos faster, slow them down or even rewind them.
Firstly, you’ll need to record a video. Then swipe sideways to access the feature. The icons are simple to understand. The snail icon makes your video play in slow motion. The rabbit icon makes it faster and the backward-facing arrows rewind your video.
Add Music to Your Videos
A lot of people like watching videos with the sound on. Now imagine being able to add your own music to snaps. This will really make them unique!
All you have to do is play the song you want to have on your snap and record the video on Snapchat while the song is playing. The song will automatically be the part of your video. Simple as that!
You may have used Snapchat before, but now you know that there are hidden features, you can make your posts stand out even more.
Create highly-engaging videos with your own music, cool-looking transparent colors or use geofilters to promote your next party.
