What is Snapchat

Snapchat – one of the most popular messengers in social media apps, which gives users the ability to exchange with each other disappearing messages. Among teenagers, it is a trend to take selfies with different trends. Unfortunately, some users face some issues in the work of the camera, especially zooming is a problem.

How to fix this problem

As many people prefer using the Snapchat camera instead of the phone camera, so it causes many disappointments when something goes wrong. So, here are a few simple steps to fix this issue:

  • Install the latest security patch for the phone. Sometimes, phones face bags and glitches which may be fixed in the latest version. To update the phone you should: go to the “Settings”, find “Software update”, then click on the option “Check for updates or download updates”, then give a permission to update the phone.
  • Cleaning the Snapchat app lens Cache. To clean the cashe you should do the next steps: first, open the Snapchat app, then, find in the top left side the “Profile icon” and tap on it. After that, you’ll see in the top right corner the “Gear-shaped setting icon”. At last, find the “Clear lens data” option and click on it.

After doing those steps, you should also restart your device, as while restarting not only software is refreshed but also apps.

How to resize the snap

As Snapchat processes the snap to be as wide as the screen of the device and the video will have rounded corners, users may want to resize it. Below are a few simple pieces of advice on how to do that:

  • To move the video or to resize it you may use a two-finger pinch.
  • You may also resize the video before you snap. This works especially well for reposting videos from different services.
