Android Users, Don't Fret: You'll Be Able To Make Long Snapchat Vids Eventually

Snapchat's latest update allows users to make videos that are longer than 10 seconds... that is, unless you have an Android.

If you're an Android owner who loves Snapchat, you're going to have to wait a little longer to use the app's newest feature, which allows people to take minute-long videos in segmented clips. In other words, you're basically living in the Stone Age.

I'm sorry... that was mean (I'm just a diehard iPhone lover). What I meant to say is that you're missing out on the coolest Snapchat video feature yet, and I feel bad that you aren't able to enjoy the newest update with the rest of us.

In case you're unaware of what you're missing out in, let me fill you in.

On Wednesday, July 19, Snapchat released a fun new feature called "Multi-Snap Recording" that allows users to take longer Snap videos than usual. To be more specific, the update lets users take 10-second clips simultaneously for up to 60 seconds. Hence, minute-long Snapchat videos with tiny breaks in between.

In order to use it, all you have to do is hold down the "record" button and begin taking your Snap. Once you've reached 10 seconds, you can keep your finger on the button and seamlessly continue your video in a separate clip.

After you're done recording, up to six thumbnails of the Snaps you've taken will appear at the bottom of your screen. You'll then be able to edit those thumbnails to your liking (this includes the Tint Brush tool, which Android users can currently play with).

When you're happy with your 60-second Snapchat video, you can send it to your friends or add it to your Story. It'll then appear in six 10-second consecutive clips.


Pretty sweet, right?

With this new feature, you'll never wonder when to hit "record" for the perfect Snap ever again.

But, again, only iPhone users can experience the feature at the moment. However, it will be available on Android sooner than later.

Unfortunately, we do not have an exact set date for when the update will be accessible on Androids. However, Snapchat's press release says it will be available "soon."

Elite Daily reached out to Snapchat for more details, but did not hear back at publication time.

In the meantime, Android users should borrow their friends' iPhones and practice Multi-Snap Recording so they're pros by the time it comes out on their cells.
