Other people can add you by pointing their phone at the ghost on your profile, then tapping on their screen. This is basically a QR code.
Screenshot your Snapchat profile and share it over social media for people to easily find you on the app.
Getting the colours white and black
On android, the colours white and black are available on the colour palette. iPhone users however don’t have this luxury. Get the white crayon by touching the colour palette and dragging your finger to the top left corner. To get black, drag your finger to the bottom of the screen.
How to live chat
In the Snapchat chat feature, when the person you’re talking to is replying, the yellow button will turn blue. If you and the other person hold down the button at the same time, this enables a live video chat with each other. Just like FaceTime.
Adding filters to your photos.
Once you’ve taken a photo, swipe across the screen and you will have a range of different filters, including, the time, speed and battery life. Geofilters will be available too if you are in certain places or at certain events!
Other tips for Snapchat
- Make your captions huge! Go into settings, go to manage, tap on “enable special text.” Then take a photo, tap and add a caption, tap the “T” button, using your fingers to spread the text, making the caption big. You can do the same with emojis.
- Turn on the front-facing flash if you’re taking a selfie in the dark.
