There’s a new way of sharing content on Snapchat, enter Dual Camera support. Today, Snap Inc. officially released its long-awaited Dual Camera recording feature for iPhone users.
“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,” said Snap in a press release.
To use the new feature, users have to first update the app through the Apple App Store. Once updated, boot up Snapchat and you should see a new camera icon on the right side of the camera view. Once you click that icon, Snapchat will then show a split view of your front and rear camera. Users can choose between a vertical view, horizontal view, picture-in-picture, or cut-out view.
“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,” says Snap.
The Dual Camera feature is only available for iPhone users right now, with Android support coming in the future. With the release of the iPhone 14 on the horizon, the Dual Camera feature should benefit from rumored optic and camera updates on the new models.
