To engage your Snapchat followers using a video or a snap, you need to create it a certain way only. The option of sending an old snap located in your phone memory is not available on this social media platform. The snaps you are sending are taken and recorded at that moment before sending it. It is a simple process that you can do on your own after reading this.
The front camera is recommended to enable you to view exactly what you are recording. Tap on the circle shutter button located at the bottom part of your screen to take a still snap. For videos, press and hold the circle to start recording the video snap now. It is important to note that you can do so for up to a maximum of 10 seconds. If you are not satisfied with snap or the video, tap of ‘X’ button to delete it.
Set the timer to limit viewing time to between 1 to 10 seconds on photo snaps. When your Snapchat followers receive the snap, they can see it only for that period as it will automatically disappear once the 10 seconds elapse.
