Snapchat Tips & Tricks You Probably Don’t Know About

Snapchat is a really powerful app, yet you’re probably still unaware of half of what it does. Most adults don’t even realise Snapchat art is a thing until they explore what the teens are up to, let alone simple things like geofilters and captions.
It really is a different world. And it’s a whole lot of fun.
It’s also one of the fastest-growing social networks, so it’s worth paying some attention to it.
For those of you who wonder “What on earth is the point of creating ephemeral content?”, I should explain that most of your social media content gets buried in the noise within hours, even it it’s still technically THERE. Sure, an avid searcher could find it. But for all intents and purposes, it’s gone from the public eye.

Besides, if you REALLY want your snaps to live on for eternity, there’s a trick for that. I’ll tell you how to do it later.

You Have a Snapchat URL

Snapchat were having so much fun with Snapcodes that they didn’t bother to give us our own URLs until quite recently. Use the format below to find your URL so you can add it to your website or Twitter bio.
https://www.snapchat.com/add/YOURNAME
It’s not much use to anyone unless they’re on a mobile device, but (let’s face it) most people are these days. And it saves them having to type your name or take a photo of your snapcode. Simples!

There Are Snapchat Celebrity Directories

After years of having to ask around or trawl Twitter accounts to find your favourite celebrities on Snapchat, there are now directories springing up of the more famous users.
Snapchat.codes is one of the first directories, and it’s got popular users from all walks of life, including food bloggers, celebrities, comedians, artists and more. You’ll definitely find some interesting people to check out here.
Snapchat-Tricks-Directory
If you’re browsing this site on a laptop, use your phone to add people. Just open Snapchat and point it towards the snapcode on the site. When you see the snapcode of the person you want to add, press and hold the screen. The option to add the person as a friend will pop up.

Switch Between Front and Rear Cameras While Filming

I’m sure the teens know this one all too well, but (accidents aside), most adults haven’t noticed this functionality is here. To swap cameras while filming all you need to do is double tap the screen.

Snapchatters Can Make $10,000 Per Snap

As is the norm on all social networks, certain popular account holders are making actual money from brands for engaging in a little bit of influencer marketing. Of course it all depends on who you are and what you’re known for, but it can happen
Graphic artist CyreneQ (a.k.a. Cyrene Quiamco) reportedly makes up to $10,000 per snap when she’s on the job — and she’s not even the highest paid Snapchatter out there. She’s worked for Groupon, Disney, Burger King and the recent Fantastic Four movie to drive a little bit of excitement towards their projects.
“For the Burger King [job], I asked the audience to imagine what their reaction would be if their best friend stole their last chicken fry and to snap me their reactions. For my celebrity interviews, I have people send in the questions for the interview. It makes the audience become part of the story, not just passive consumers.” — Cyrene Quiamco

Add a Frame With Letters

So, you probably know you can write on your snaps by clicking the “T” in the top-right corner of your screen. You can make the text a little larger by clicking the “T” again and again.
Now, the cute trick here is to make the letter so big that you’ve made a frame for your picture. So, O is the perfect circle border to your image, while N makes the top of a Triangle and A makes a full triangle.

Keep Your Best Friend’s Stories Up Top

So, you probably noticed that your friends’ Snapchat stories are sorted in alphabetical order after the “Recent Updates” section. Pretty standard stuff, so you probably just left it at that, right? Well, it can be tweaked a little. Not the list order itself, but where your contacts rank alphabetically.
In case you haven’t guessed it yet, the trick here is to add an “A – ” to the beginning of your contact’s name. So, if you have a small group of people who you really want up top all the time, add this to the start of their name and you’re set.
To do this, you need to swipe down the screen and go to your “My Friends” list, tap on the contact you want, click the gear icon and edit their name. Then you’re set.

Organize Your Snapchat Friends With Emoji

Following on from the tip above, you can use the same steps to edit your friends and group them with a common theme. To do this, emoji is your best friend. Just make sure you stick the emoji at the start of their name and they’ll all stay grouped together in the list.
For ideas, try grouping all your musicians with some musical notes, the comedians with a laughing smiley, food bloggers with a bowl of noodles, and celebrities with a star. Go nuts.
And while we’re talking about friends, you should also read up on how to hide people from your best friends list. Just in case.

Share Discover Stories

Here’s a tip that’s probably blindingly obvious to the under-30s, but still worth mentioning. When you’re watching a story from one of the big brands in Discover, you can actually send that on to a friend — and even add your own embellishments.
While you’re viewing the Discover story, press and hold the snap and it will open in a draft for you. From there you can edit and add filters as usual, then share away just like any other snap.

Save Your Stories

Okay, here’s the promised tip for the people who hate to let hard work vanish. If you don’t want your content to disappear completely after 24 hours, you don’t have to. It’s perfectly possible to save your story to your phone, where you can then upload it to YouTube or wherever else you like, just as you would for any other video.
To do this, swipe right to get to all of your friends’ stories. Your story should be at the top of the list with an obvious-looking download button. Once it’s saved to your phone, you can save it to wherever you want.
If you think you’re going to forget to do this, there’s a service you can use called My Snap Memories. Think of it as Katch.me for Snapchat. To use it, you need to be broadcasting your stories publicly, and to register at their website. Then each month you’ll be sent a personalized email with your stories ready to view, share and embed. The only catch is that you don’t get to keep the video.
It’s hosted by them and can’t be moved to YouTube or anywhere else. But it’s still embeddable and would certainly be a great backup option.
Similarly, the individual snaps you take can be saved too. Just use the download button in the bottom left of your screen.
And don’t forget, your snaps could easily be saved by your friends using various tricks. So, be careful.

Are You a Snapchat N00b?

Are you feeling like you know nothing about Snapchat after reading this? Or were you just happy to pick up a few new tricks?

disable blue ticks_0

(1)  BEGONE, BLUE TICKS OF MISERY
We know how it is. You’re at figure skating practice, your phone buzzes, and you glance down briefly before nailing a spectacular triple axle.

Sometimes you’ve only got time for a quick glance, taking a little time to formulate a response as you carry on with the rest of our day. Ideally without having the sender realise that we actually looked at said message five hours ago, as otherwise they’d think we’re ignoring them. That’s the privelege the blue ticks take away.

Recently though, the chat app has realised the error of its ways and silently come up with a workaround. The liberty of message-mulling is ours again.

How: Users can just access Privacy via Settings and disable Read Receipts.

If you’re that desperate though, you have to download the beta and head to your Android phone’s settings, enable Unknown Sources to install the APK file as it’s not in the Google Play Store yet.

There, now it’s time to iron out the kinks in your friendships that the blue ticks have caused.

(2). SEE WHEN YOUR MESSAGES ARE READ

Think the double blue ticks are the worst thing to happen to relationships since Last Seen? Think again. Here’s another way you could annoy your mates.

In addition to finding out the exact time your messages are delivered, you can also choose to see the exact time your message was read if you choose to stick with the ticks.

How: Go to any of your WhatsApp chats, tap and hold on any of the messages you’ve sent in that chat, followed by the Info option. For iOS users, you can also drag towards the left to reveal a window which will show the time your message was delivered and subsequently read.

It works for group messages too with the window listing the time each participant read the message.

3. TIED TO YOUR NUMBER
If you’re overseas and you get a new data sim, there’s no need to go through the hassle of registering the new number attached to the SIM and faff around adding contacts. Just carry on using WhatsApp with your regular number.

How: When you put your new SIM in and activate WhatsApp, you’ll be prompted by the messaging service to register the new number. But doing so will mess up your contacts list. Just ignore the pop-up or cancel it, and your WhatsApp should work linked to your old number, while using your new data SIM.

broadcast

4. SENDING PUBLIC MESSAGES PRIVATELY
If you’ve got a generic announcement to make – an invite to a weekend braai or an intervention about your friend’s unhealthy obsession with KFC – and you don’t want to do it on the loudmouth platform that is Facebook, this feature works in pretty much the same way as BCC-ing people in an email.

Your recipients will get the message as if it was a privately composed one, oblivious to the fact that you’ve sent the exact same invite to 342 other people. Sincerity? What’s that?

How: On the top left hand corner of your WhatsApp Chats window, just below the search bar, you’ll notice a Broadcast Lists. Tap on it for the option to create a new list of contacts you want your message to go out to, and message away like you would normally.


backup_0

5. BACK IT UP
Worried about losing a year’s worth of messages? You don’t have to. WhatsApp knows how precious your chat history is to you and secures it all for you in the cloud.

How: iPhone users get the option of backing their chat history to iCloud automatically on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule. If it’s only selected chat histories you desire, click on the chat you want, then the user’s name and finally email conversation to yourself.

Android users will find the file within the WhatsApp folder in their phone. Make sure that file, found in WhatsApp > Databases and named msgstore.db.crypt7, is copied and transferred to the exact same folder if you wipe your phone or get a new Android device.


convo shortcut

6. SHORTCUTS TO CONVERSATIONS
If there are certain people you chat to more often, it might be a good idea to create a shortcut for them directly on your homescreen so you don’t have to keep opening and closing WhatsApp.

How: Tap and hold on the chat (group or individual) of your choice and a tab will pop up. Select the Add Conversation Shortcut option and the chat in question will appear as the person’s profile photo on your mobile desktop. Unfortunately this only applies for Android users and not iPhone ones. Sorry guys.


save media

7. SAVING MEDIA
When you’re on a 1GB data plan, every MB counts. You don’t want to be slapped with a hefty bill at the end of the month from sending stupid shareable memes and screenshots of every little thing. There’s a way to make sure that all that heavy-duty image sending won’t eat up what little complimentary data you might have in your plan.

How: Go to Settings, then Chat Settings and then Auto-Download and tweak the settings for how you want your received media to be downloaded. Choose Wi-Fi if you don’t want to overload your data plan. Alternatively, you can trigger downloads manually by switching Auto-Download to Never. You can also save the hassle of having to clean up your camera roll every so often by tweaking Save Incoming Media off.


privacy somewhat

8. KEEPING GROUP CHATS ON THE DOWN LOW
As WhatsApp becomes the go-to chat app for more and more people, the likelihood of making group decisions gets carried over as well. So if you’re always getting added to new group chats filled with strangers (you social butterfly, you), you might want to keep certain details private until those strangers become friends.

How: Head to Settings, Privacy, and then tweak your Last Seen, Profile Photo and Status to retain a bit of mystery. Choose to share them with Everyone, or only your Contacts, or Nobody at all. Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do about hiding your phone number.


mutey mute

9. MUTE GROUP CHATS
We’re all in at least a few group chats at any one time, created because someone (likely the group admin) was bored. People tend to get overzealous in chats, especially since WhatsApp allows group conversations of up to 50 participants. Who hasn’t woken up to the horror of 100+ unread messages fuelled by a night of boredom?

How: To prevent yourself from being woken up by the constant lighting up of your smartphone screen, you can (a) either flip yourphone over and ignore it or (b) Mute the offending group chat. Tap on the group chat of your choice, then the name to bring up Group Info where you will find the option to Mute the chat for eight hours to one week or a year. Alternatively, you can exit it altogether.


customizzzzze

10. STAYING SELECTIVELY NOTIFIED
Not all group chats are created equal, as some are filled with nothing but white noise. And it’s exactly those group chats you want to ignore until you get some down time to sieve through everything that’s been said. On the flipside, there are the group chats you want to stay on top of like ones deciding dinner plans for the night and so on. Here’s how you can stay selectively notified.


How: Go to the significant group chats, tap on the name to bring up Group Info and then Custom Notifications. There, you can select a custom message alert for the group chats of your choice. All you have to do now is remember which alert tone you assigned to which group chat. This customisation is only applicable for group chats though.location


11. FIND OUT THE TRUTH ABOUT WHERE YOUR FRIEND IS
We’ve all been a victim of that “on the way” lie when the person in question is still in bed. To prevent yourself from ever getting duped again, insist that the contact shares their current location with you by tapping on the arrow icon next to the text box and then Share Location. There’s also a way of preventing them from manually entering their l

How: The way the location appears is a clue. If it’s a real GPS-based location, the location share will appear as a dropped pin, but if it’s a location they entered, its address will appear beside the dropped pin. Feel free to call them out on it.
