Snapchat has long been the super trend application. But in the face of the rise of Instagram the developers had to redouble their inventiveness. The functions of Snapchat have gradually expanded. So much so that it is not always easy to see clearly. So here are some tips to make better use of the ephemeral photo sharing application.
Despite a huge hit with young, Snapchat is far from the app Android easier to understand, first because of the ephemeral nature of member publications, then because of the originality of its concept which, quite illogically, is also main factors of its popularity.
However, when you have just downloaded Snapchat and created an account on the social network, either you become addicted immediately or you decide to close the application and never open it again. If you opt for the second solution, then you miss out on one of the trendiest social networks of the moment, which would still be a pity. That’s why we offer you today our top 10 tips and tricks to better use Snapchat.
To start and if not already done, download Snapchat into the Play Store by clicking on the image below:
- How to add friends on Snapchat
You just download the application and create your account and your friend list is still empty? No panic, this one will soon grow longer. To add friends, all you need to do is:
- Click on the ghost icon at the top of the application homepage
- Select add friends
Add your friends also from their username or by scrolling through the contacts in your address’s book using Snapchat. You can also invite your contacts who are not yet using the application to crack it out.
- How to share a photo
The view of Snapchat is very simple and very instinctive since it is that of a camera with, at the top left, a button to activate/deactivate the flash, top right, a button to manipulate between the front sensor and the back camera and, at the bottom, a trigger to take a pic with your smartphone.
As soon as your picture is taken and it suits you, just click on the arrow at the bottom right to share it. Note that at the top right, you will find the editing options that we will evoke a little later, and in the bottom left, a button that will allow you to describe how long your contacts will see your snap display. Length can range from 1 second to 10 seconds. It’s up to you.
When you post a video or photo on the app, you do not have to share it with all of your friends. You can simply share it with a person or two previously selected. To do this, simply:
- Post your image or video once captured by clicking on the small arrow at the bottom right
- Select “My Story” to send it to all your friends or tick the names of the friends to whom you want to send it to share it with only a few contacts.
- How to send a video to Snapchat
Just like Instagram, Snapchat not only allows you to send photos on the social network but also short videos, here 10 seconds. To capture and post a video, simply press and hold the round button at the bottom of the center of the camera interface.
To post your video,

- Click on your story
- Click image
- Click on the cross to delete it
- Who sees my snaps
As a snapper, you know who you send your snaps to, but who do you watch? To do this, simply:
- Swipe the screen from right to left to bring up your story
- Click on your story to expand it
- Click on a picture or a video, at the bottom you will be shown the number of people who have viewed your snap (see picture above). Then you can scroll the screen up and down to scroll through their names.
It should be noted that the stories are unlimitedly viewable for a period of 24 hours. Traditional snaps are only viewable once but the company has recently introduced a replay option that can only be used once a day. In addition, in case this is not enough, Snapchat also offers a paid replay option with three replays for 0.99 dollar, but only in the US
. How to upload your story to your gallery
To download your snaps in the gallery of your phone, nothing simpler, you just need:
- Click on your story

- Swipe the screen from left to right
- Click on the Chat button in the top right corner
- Select the contact with whom you want to chat and send your message
- What is the Discover Function?
Months ago, Snapchat introduced a new feature called Discover, which became a new communication channel for different media. Some artists even took the opportunity to unveil their last clip completely on Snapchat before posting then on Vevo.
To get to Discover, simply:
- Sweep the screen from right to left
- Select the media of your choice by scrolling the list from right to left
- How to add filters to your images
What would a photo social network without the ability to embellish your images and add the effects of your choice using filters? Fortunately, this is obviously possible with Snapchat. To do this, simply:
- Go to the Additional Options> Manage menu
- Ceck the box Filters
To apply a filter to an image, simply drag it to the left or right after the capture is complete. You can also add the time or the weather to your image.
Note that to add filters, it will be necessary to let the application access your location, some integrating, for example, the weather information or your city. That is to say that we can put two filters superimposed, for that once the first filter set, you remain pressed and you can again pass the filters to put a second.
- How to add text to your photos
Do you have anything to say? Why not add text to your Snapchat photos to customize them a little more? It is very simple and you even have the choice between several writing fonts, once you are tired of the traditional Times New Roman.
To insert text to your images, simply click on the screen after the capture and then enter the text of your choice on the keyboard. The police do not suit you? Click on the “T” logo at the top right of the screen to select a new one.
