It can be difficult to take a fun Snapchat video while keeping your thumb pressed to the screen. All it takes is a slight slip to cut short the fun in what could have been an awesome video.[bctt tweet=”#iPhone users can take @Snapchat video hands-free. #video #iphonesettings #nohands” username=””]
Step 1: Go to settings
On your iPhone, go to Settings > General > Accessibility.
Step 2: Assistive touch
Where it says Assistive Touch, change it to “On.”
Step 3: New gesture
Select “Create New Gesture.” Press your finger against the screen to record your desired swipe gesture and save it.
Step 4: Name It
Give the new gesture a name that you’ll remember, such as “No Hands” or “Hands Free.”
Step 5: Open Snapchat
This little loophole may be attractive for avid Snapchat videographers with iPhones. Unfortunately, Android users have yet to discover such a loophole. Perhaps a future Snapchat update will make the task easier for all users and mobile devices alike.
