Hidden Snapchat Tricks You Should Know
Certainly! Here are some hidden Snapchat tricks and features that you might find useful:
- Create custom geofilters: Snapchat allows you to create personalized geofilters for special occasions or events. Simply design your filter using a graphic editor, upload it to Snapchat’s website, select a geofence where you want the filter to be available, and set the duration. Your friends and attendees can then use your custom filter within that location and time frame.
- Shazam integration: When playing music on your device, you can use Snapchat’s Shazam integration to recognize the song. Just press and hold the camera screen while the music is playing, and Snapchat will display the song’s title and artist. You can then save, share, or learn more about the song.
- Add more text: By default, Snapchat limits the amount of text you can add to a snap. However, if you want to include more text, you can use the Notes app (or any text editor) to type your desired text, copy it, and then paste it into the Snapchat text field. This allows you to bypass the character limit.
- Create Snapcode shortcuts: You can create Snapcode shortcuts on your home screen for specific friends or groups. Open Snapchat, tap and hold on a friend’s Bitmoji or profile picture, select “Create Shortcut,” and it will add a shortcut to your home screen for quick access to their chat.
- Change the rear camera to front-facing quickly: Instead of tapping the camera switch icon to switch between the front and rear cameras, simply double-tap anywhere on the camera screen. It will automatically switch the camera.
- Use two filters simultaneously: To use two filters at the same time, swipe right on your snap to apply the first filter. Then, while holding the screen with one finger, swipe left with another finger to select and apply the second filter.
- View snaps without marking them as read: By enabling airplane mode before opening a snap, you can view the snap without marking it as read. After viewing it, exit Snapchat, turn off airplane mode, and the snap will remain unopened.
- Rearrange your friend’s list: You can customize the order of your friend’s list on Snapchat. Go to your Friends screen, tap on the “Edit” button, and drag and drop your friends to rearrange their order according to your preference.
These are just a few hidden tricks, and Snapchat continues to introduce new features and updates regularly. Exploring the app and staying updated with Snapchat’s announcements will help you discover even more exciting features and functionalities.
