Snapchat has some great features. It’s not a surprise that this social medium is used by over 150 million users. And yet, Snapchat has its annoying traits — specifically one. Those 10-second videos were getting on everyone’s nerves.
Even the people at Snapchat have experienced the frustration. They even published a little blog post to vent. “We’ve all felt the frustration of not being able to fully enjoy a Snap — even after replaying it — and we wanted to give you the option of allowing the recipient to enjoy your Snap as long as they’d like.”
They’ve fixed this, of course. They wouldn’t admit to the frustration if they didn’t have something up their sleeve. You no longer have to limit your clips to ten seconds. Nope. Now, you can record up to 60 seconds. That’s a nice little jump there.
The new feature is called "Multi-Snap." All you have to do once you reach the 10 seconds is to keep holding the shutter until you’re done recording. The recording will be just like a normal recording of a video but yes, the footage will be automatically broken up into 10-second clips.
Multi-Snap is perfect when you want to catch something on Snapchat but you’re not sure when it’s going to happen. You have a longer window of time to record and that way you don’t have to keep deleting snaps. It’s also ideal because it will make it easier for you to get the perfect snap.
Despite the advantages, it’s still a bit of an annoyance that the video is broken up into 10-second clips. But I’m guessing people aren’t ready to move on from Snapchat just yet. This social medium is too addictive to give up for one annoying feature.
I guess we’ll have to take what we’ve been given because what we’ve been given is not too bad. People with iPhones are already enjoying this new feature. For Android users, they’re going to have to wait a bit longer as the feature there is still in "coming soon" mode.
Multi-Snap isn’t the only new feature getting us newly excited for Snapchat. Recently a “creative tool” was released to make snaps even more magical. And let’s face it, to waste a little more of our time.
The new tool is called the Tint Brush. The latter is similar to the selective tool found in photo editing software such as Photoshop. What it does is allow you to change the color of things in the snaps.
