Snapchat is a media sharing application that offers a fantastic feature of disappearing media and chats. It has become increasingly famous in recent times because of the wonderful AI-based face-filters. It has 187 million daily active users as per the stats from February 2018.

Snapchat allows the users to record a short video by pressing and holding the snap button. But do you know there is another way through which you can record videos without holding the button? Read on to find out how you can do this.

Record on Snapchat without holding a button

You can change the focus while recording by tapping on the screen at the point where you want to shift the focus. In addition to this, you can also zoom in and out while recording by using pinch gestures. Snapchat allows you to add stickers to the recorded video and you can also use the presets or filters available in the application. You can switch the flash on/off while recording by tapping on the flash button on the top.

You can also use location-based filters if you have granted Snapchat the required permissions. These filters, as the name suggests, are specific to certain locations and can be applied to your snaps by tapping and holding by one finger and swiping on the screen by another.
