Mastering the Camera Snapchat’s camera works a little differently than the default Android or i OS camera app, so it’s worth walking through.
For instance, if you tap on the shutter button it will take a photo, but if you hold down on it, Snapchat will record video.
If you want something longer than that, you’ll need to build a Snapchat Story, which is what the third button at the bottom left is for, but more on that later.
The second button is a download button so you can save your snaps to your smartphone, which doesn’t happen automatically.
(You can also swipe left one more time for the “Discover” screen, which displays stories by media entities like ESPN, CNN, and People, also a Time Inc.
This hugely entertaining feature maps out the face (or faces) on screen, and can apply animations and other graphics to the mug.
From dogs wearing glasses to carnival mirror-type contortions, there’s always something new to see.
And through some slick promotions, the app frequently cycles in new lenses to play with based on popular movies and shows.
