Snapchat has rolled out new Dual Camera support for all users, globally on iOS. The new feature will be available on Android in the coming months.
Earlier this month, Instagram released dual camera support for users to capture the moment and their or others’ reactions at the same time. Now, Snap users can do the same.
Snapchat users can add “double the perspective” in Snaps, Stories, and Spotlight videos with the new Dual Camera feature
To record what is happening on both sides of the camera, Snapchat has added a new Dual Camera feature on the platform. The new feature offers four layouts: horizontal, vertical, cutout, and picture-in-picture to create different types of pictures, clips, or videos. Users can also add music, stickers, and other filters to make their projects even more entertaining Snaps, Stories, or Spotlight videos.
Snap’s Camera is one of the most used cameras in the world. Today, we’re introducing Dual Camera, a new way for Snapchatters to capture multiple perspectives at the same time – so everyone can be part of the moment, as it happens.
After updating their app to the latest version, Snapchat users on iOS will see a new “camera” icon in the camera UI’s toolbar. Tapping on the icon will open a floating Dual Camera menu with all four layouts. Users can tap on the layout options to select the one suitable at the moment.
With one simple tap, you can start creating Snaps and Stories, or more polished Spotlight videos, with double the perspective. Dual Camera is a creative way for our community to capture exciting moments while being part of the memory – like rocking out at a music festival, or everyday moments like your culinary adventures in the kitchen.
The company recently updated its paid tier “Snapchat+” with Priority story replies, Post view emoji, and other new features.
