Have You Heard About Emoji Inside a Video? Surprised.

Snapchat got a huge update that includes new selfie tools, in-app purchases, a new Trophy case feature, and emoji integration inside the video. Let’s see in details –

‘Lenses’, which can be called as Animated selfies

“Lenses” are the biggest change to the Snapchat that enables to add a wide range of special effects to photos captured with the front-facing camera. Users can unlock the lenses by holding down on your face when the front facing camera is open in an application.

With Lenses, you can record videos and give seven different effects, including a rainbow tongue and animated heart eyes. Snapchat will the Lenses regularly with a new effect.

Friend emojis


After removing the “best friends” feature, Snapchat (Snapchat faces) came up with the friend emojis. With this emoji, you can describe your Snapchat relationship with the people you exchange the message.
Snapchat enables users to tell the difference between the yellow and red heart (Besties vs. BFFs). In order to enable this feature, you have to change some setting by following Additional Services -> Manage -> Friend Emojis. Users can also customize setting by selecting the emoji they want to change and pick a new one.

Extra replays and the Trophy Case


Now, users can unlock extra replays via an in-app purchase with Snapchat. Users get one free replay per 24-hour period, although you can get an extra three for $0.99 or get 10 for $2.99 or 20 for $4.99. With the paid replays, users can only reply a snap one time, so their reply must be used for separate messages.

Another best feature we found in the Snapchat app update is the Trophy Case. Each “trophy” is different emoji representing a different achievement like reaching to a certain score. For example – If you are sending a video Snapchat, it unlocks the VHS tape trophy. Moreover, using more than five pen colors in a singleSnap unlocks the lollipop.

Fantastic Feature – Emojis within videos

Snapchat emoji Video becomes more interesting with latest emoji stickers that can attach to the objects and move them along with it. Stickers can be changed according to the size and orientation as well.

The best thing about SnapChat emoji stickers is it moves, rotates and scales automatically to match the object. For example – you can stick a crying face to any of your friend’s face’ and watch it how it adjusts itself.

It also enables to attach multiple emoji stickers in a single video. Snapchat enables you to use both static and dynamic emoji in your video.
