Start to snap

Everything you need to know about Snapchat.

Snapchat is one of the hottest apps of the moment. And rightly so! You can send a photo that your friends can only view once before it’s gone. So if you have time to kill, but can't be bothered to look everything up, we're happy to provide you with the basics.

First and foremost, you have to download Snapchat and create an account. After that, the fun can begin! A photo in Snapchat is called a snap, and you take one by simply pressing the red button on the screen. If you press and hold, you can take a video. But there’s more to Snapchat than just taking pictures...

  1. Add text

  2. Add emojis and written text

  3. Send your snap to friends or create a Story

    You can send a personal snap to one or more friends by tapping the check mark next to their names. Another option is to add the snap to "My Story". Your snap can then be watched for 24 hours before it self-destructs, and you can add several snaps to it.

  4. And… filters for the win!

    Once you get started, you'll discover loads of cool functions! On Snapchat, you’ll find the best filters and can go crazy with them.

  5. Check Face Swap

    Last but not least, there's the trippy "Face Swap". Have you always wanted to be Kanye West? Come on, admit it! Well, with Face Swap, you can:
