How to create and send Snaps
Viewing friends’ Snaps is fun, sure, but you’ll also need to know how to create Snaps of your own. When you open the Snapchat app, it goes directly to the camera screen, so you’re all sent to start Snapping.
1. Take a picture or video
To take a picture, tap the capture (circular) button at the bottom of the screen.
To take a video, hold the capture button down and a red marker will appear to indicate that it’s recording. You can capture up to 10 seconds of video in one Snap. If you keep holding the button down, it will record multiple Snaps.
