On Monday, June 8th, 2015 there was a major Snapchat update for iPhone users. Early in the day the update was not available to Android users but I am positive it will be available in the Google Play Store within the next 24 hours. Below are the updates to Snapchat:
- Double tap the screen while recording a Snap to switch between the selfie and rear-facing cameras!
- Login Verification — when you log in to Snapchat on a new device, we can send you a SMS code to make sure it’s you! Turn on this feature in Settings.
- Battery filters — add a little something to your Snaps when you’re all juiced up 🙂 or low on battery 🙁
UPDATE: The battery filters work above 95% and below 10%. They look like this:
The battery filters and the double tap on the screen to switch from a rear facing to a front facing camera will likely be the most used. I tried out the double tap feature and it works very well. I had 86% battery on my iPhone 5s and there was no battery filter. I would imagine the batter filters will be available when you are at 100% or 95%+ and lower than 20%. I will try them out over the next 24 hours and post some screenshots.
I tried out the battery filter and found out that anything above 95% allows you to use the filters. I am going to try to drain my battery and see how low it has to get to use the low battery filter.
Have you downloaded the newest version of Snapchat? What do you think?
