11 Classy Snapchat Tricks

1. Discover more colors

Slide your finger up on color bar then left to get white. For black, slide your finger down and then left on the color bar.

2. More Filter Colors

Type in the capital letter A on your snap >

Tap the T text icon in the upper right corner to make it large font >

Change the text to the color that you want your filter >

Using two fingers enlarge the A you just created to where the fuzzy blurry end is covering your picture. The result is a filter with a unique color not normally available. Alternatively, you can enlarge an emoji and use its color for a filter.

3. Blow up emoji characters

To make emoji’s any size you want, enter the emoji(s) you want to use and hit the T text icon in the upper right corner. Then, with two fingers, zoom in or out to change the emoji size to your heart’s content.

4. Get more text

Open the text app on your phone. Hit return three to four times to create 4 blank lines of space. Select all to highlight the space > copy the highlighted blank area > paste in the snapchat text bar to increase the area available for text.

5. Use multiple filters

Use this hack to combine filters. Swipe one filter into place and hold it down with your finger. Then, use your other hand to swipe and select an additional filter.

6. Hide your screen shots

To take a screenshot without your friend getting a notification, turn your phone on airplane mode. Take your screenshot of their snap or story and immediately log out of the app. Then, turn off airplane mode and log back into Snapchat.

7. Send Cash with SnapCash

Not a fan of Venmo or PayPal? Snapchat takes care of on-the-go transactions with their new money-transfer feature. To setup Snapcash, swipe into the "compose message" screen where you would normally chat. Enter a dollar amount and tap on the green button, which will force the app to begin the setup process. After accepting the new Terms of Service, you will need to enter your debit card information. Once the initial setup is completed you won’t have to do it again. You can then type “$10” for example to you're friend, hit send and your done that quickly!

8. You can use emojis as stencils to make doodling easier

This phone trick works perfectly if you want to draw something that already exists as an emoji. Say you want to draw a phone case, but you’re not an artist. Just select the iPhone emoji and trace over it. You can then delete the original emoji. Everyone will think you’re a Snapchat doodle master.

9. Shrink down emojis and set realistic scenes with them

10. Save your conversations

Ever receive a message from someone that you couldn’t reply to right away? Then, you forget what the conversation was about? Simply tap and hold down on the messages you receive to save them.

11. Resurrect old lenses by changing the date on your phone

Really miss the puking rainbow or robotic filter? Though Snapchat swaps in new lenses each day, you can revert to previous ones that have disappeared by changing the date in your phone's main settings.

On iOS, go to Settings > General > Date & Time and turn off "set automatically."

On Android, go to Settings > Date & Time and uncheck "automatic date and time."

Then, choose the date that offered the lenses you want to use again (if you want a look at the first batch, go back to Sept. 15, 2015, the day of the update). Remember, it's probably not a good idea to leave your phone on the wrong date long-term, as it could mess with other phone apps. So once you're done snapping, change your phone settings back to automatic.

No snapchat trick does you any good if your camera lens gets scratched. Keep your lens clean and scratch free with a camera lens protector. (for iPhone only) Full product description here.
