Why limit the choice of word to 31 characters in your Snap story? To add more text to your snaps, simply go to My Notes, then select a blank text and copy it to the clipboard. Once done, paste it into the text field of your snap and you are good to go to add a paragraph to your story.

Double Filters

If you want to use two filters at once for your snap, then do this. Simply swipe over your photo to use first filter and then hold down on the screen to swipe over with another filter.

Use Emojis as Filters

How about using the emoji as a filter? Well for that, choose the emoji and enlarge it while using your fingers as much as it takes up the whole screen. Once the edges become pixelated, then drag over the frame to give it a look similar to that of the filter. 

Use Two-Step Verification

Just like any other app, it is always a better idea to enable two-step verification to keep your information secure. All you have to do is, go to settings and select ‘login verification’.

Revive Old Camera Lenses

As Snapchat keeps changing its lenses, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get back to the old camera.

Just go to settings, select ‘date and time’ and uncheck the automatic date and time. Once done, you can change the date to a previous update and use the lens for your snap. However, make sure to change the date to present once you are done snapping as it will affect your other apps too.
