What is Snapchat?
If you have been on internet since the last five years then you would have seen the photos of girls and boys with the dog face, little white ghost right on yellow backgrounds, and filtered photos and videos that last not more than 10 seconds, basically everything mentioned above is related to Snapchat now-a-days.
Basically it was designed to send nudes that would obviously disappear after a certain amount of time and inform the sender if the person right on the other end has screenshotted those nudes or not. The app has now evolved into a social media app, a communication tool, and so, so much more.
There is no doubt that Snapchat is the biggest social media platform of the day. Here we would cover everything one should know about the app, from basics to the hacks that would bring your snaps to the next level.
When you will open the Snapchat app from your menu. it will immediately take you to the camera. If you hit the button, your photo would be clicked, you can also make your video by tapping the button and pressing it for not more than 10 seconds.
If you want to write a short message on your snap then click on the image and a semi opaque black bar would appear on which you can type.
You can also draw on your screen by clicking the pencil tool on the upper right-hand corner of the screen. You can also add emojis to your snaps by clicking on the paper icon in the upper right-hand corner, it would be the third icon from right.
You can also scroll to the left to add Instagram-esque filters to your photo, also the time of day or even a custom geotag, this will only gonna work when your location service is on.
After clicking a photo you can choose how many seconds you want (up to 10) by clicking the timer icon in the lower left-hand corner. And if you want to save the image, click the arrow pointing down with the line underneath (the second icon on the bottom left of your screen).
Once you are done with your photo or video, click the arrow at the bottom right corner. You can either send it to your friends by checking the boxes next to their names (stars will show up with friends who you snapchat often), also you can add it to your story by checking off the My Story button.
You can easily monitor all your private snaps (sent and received) by swiping right on your camera screen. You can also look at your friends’ stories and manage your own by swiping to the left. Here, you can easily see how many people viewed your story by clicking the three dots next to the “My Story” section. Click on an individual story and pull up with your finger to see who have viewed it.
Hacks That Would Take Your Snaps to the Next Level:
Wanna use a geotag and a filter at the same time? You can easily do this by choosing the filter, then hold down on the screen while swiping to the left.
You can easily get more than one line of text by going into your notes and creating a new document. Then press return several times, also hold down your finger to “select all,” then copy that chunk of blank space and paste it into the Snapchat text bar.
It you wanna make your text look bigger and bolder then you can easily do it by clicking the “T” icon in the upper right-hand corner. From there, you can change the color of your text by scrolling along the rainbow bar. Pinch the text with two fingers to make it bigger or smaller or to put it on an angle. This pinching technique works for emojis as well.
If you want your photo or video to add into your story then you can do it easily by pressing the square with the + sign on the bottom left of the camera screen after taking a photo or video.
