How Does Snapchat Work?

Snapchat is available for free on both iOS and Android. Simply go to your app store, search for Snapchat, and download it. Simply choose your desired Snapchat username and password after downloading.

You’re ready to begin once you’ve logged in. Let’s look at how you can use Snapchat to post something:

  1. Tap the Camera button to take a snap.
  2. Hold on to it to make a video.
  3. Check out the tools to make snaps more interesting.
  4. Select the friends you want to send your snaps to.
  5. Tap the Send button.

You’ve learned the fundamentals. Did you know, however, that there are some hidden Snapchat features and hacks that will make your snaps even more interesting?

How to make transparent colors on Snapchat from iPhone

  1. Tap a photo or video in the updated Snapchat app. You can also choose a photo from your camera roll.
  2. Select Edit.
  3. At the top right, tap the pencil icon. A vertical color slider and three colored circles will be visible.
  4. Tap and hold the three-circle icon until it turns transparent.
  5. Draw on the post now. Using the vertical slider, change the color.
  6. Lastly, share it on Snapchat.

Using photo editing apps from third parties

To make changes to the images, there are several photo editing apps available on the App Store. Over is one that I’ve been using for a long time. Let me demonstrate how to use it to add transparent text to an image.

  1. Open the Over app after downloading it.
  2. Select an image from your iPhone Photos by tapping the plus button Image.
  3. Choose a size or check the box to keep the image at its original size.
  4. Tap Text, then type what you want on the image and check the box.
  5. If you want to change the color of the text, tap Color.
  6. After that, go to Opacity and drag the slider to the left to make the text as transparent as you want it.
  7. Finally, tap the Save to Photos checkbox on the top right of the screen. You can now share it on Snapchat.


You may have used Snapchat before, but now that you know about the hidden features, your posts will stand out even more.

To promote your next party, make highly engaging videos with your own music, cool-looking transparent colors, or geofilters.
