How to Create and Send Snaps

Taking Photos and Videos

To take a photo Snap, tap the center circle button once.

To record a video Snap, press and hold the center circle button for as long as you want the video to be.


To delete your photo, tap the X button in the top left corner.

Drawing and Adding a Caption

To draw on your Snap, tap the pen icon in the top right corner.

To set the timer for a photo Snap, tap the timer icon in the bottom left corner and select the amount of time you want your Snap to last, but note that we can’t guarantee the Snap will only last for this amount of time and the recipient could take a screenshot of the Snap.

To add a caption, tap the middle of the screen and enter text. Tap anywhere (or press “Done”) to exit out of the caption interface.
