Amazing Snapchat hacks – No one ever told you
You won’t believe you didn’t know about these unknown hacks of Snapchat. Getting good at Snapchat used to take time and practice but not for you. Here are the best tips and tricks for your Snaps, Stories, and more…
Hack 1 – How to use up to 3 filters at once
You know to swipe left or right on your photo to apply a filter, it’s one of the first tricks beginner’s learn but have you spotted the Layers button? Tap this, the stack of 3 squares, to add more than one filter to the same Snap. Easy.
The old two-handed technique for layering filters was one of the best Snapchat hacks. You’d choose your first, then press a finger on your screen while you scrolled to find your second filter with your free hand – when you landed on it, you’d stop touching the screen. Two filters applied, you chose one more by tapping and holding the screen again until you made your third pick. That was how to apply more than one filter. Today, it’s much simpler, don’t you think?
Hack – 2 How to make Snaps last more than 10 seconds

Or have your video play on a loop, by pressing the circular arrow button below the paperclip, so your Snap plays again and again until your friend closes it.

Now, when your friends swipe up on your Snap, they’ll go to the website you picked. Be it a news story, online petition, crowd funder, or something else.
