SnapChat, the app that lets you send photo messages to friends that automatically delete a few seconds after viewing, now supports video.
This is great news in the SnapChat universe, where users— largely teens— revel in the freedom to share inappropriate or potentially scandalous images of themselves under secure pretenses. Now, rather than merely sending images of your junk, you can spice things up with a video of up to 10 seconds in length.
In an updated version of SnapChat released today, the video feature works in the same way that photos did, only instead of tapping the camera button to take a photo, you hold it down for video. You can choose a time period of up to 10 seconds for the video to stay viewable, after which it will automatically vanish from the recipients phone.
