How to send long videos on Snapchat?
Previously Snapchat allowed video recording up to 10 seconds, it is still the same but now people can record six consecutive videos of 10 seconds each. Snapchat would string all the videos together to make it a 60-second long one.
Recording long videos is a straightforward process. You just need to make a small tweak. Here is how:
- Open and sign in to the Snapchat app
- Turn on the camera by tapping on the camera tab at the bottom left
- Choose the filter and camera you wish to use
- Point the camera toward the subject of the recording
- Press and hold the white Record button in the center
- The button will turn red as the recording starts
- A white circle ring would start to fill up around the record button indicating the 10-second mark
- It should continue six times if you keep on holding the record button
Once the 60 seconds are over or when you remove the finger from the recording button, the videos would be stringed together and played to you in sequence. You can now watch, edit, add stickers, add filters, etc. before taping on the Save option. It would be saved in the Snapchat Memories section.
