Snapchat is a tool we normally use for take pictures and record short videos for stories, inside and outside the application. However, there are many other tools that we can take advantage of this program.
Among the most important, and which we will talk about here, will be that of being able to make video calls and even being able to add filters to them, to have fun with your friends or family. Currently, to be able to communicate with digital means, with audio and video, it gives us a great advantage, as it is not necessary for us to leave the house to speak directly to one person or a group of people.
How to make a video call on Snapchat?
To start enjoying this tool, the first step is to register on Snapchat, then add the people you want to communicate with, via their ID or identification code. Other than that, it has to be on your contact list and this in turn has you too.
On the right side of the screen, you will see a blue button, which allows you to chat with that person via text. Also, we will use the same button to start the video call. You should also check that the person is connected, because if they are not, it will not be possible.
You have to give it a long touch to this button so that the notification that you want to talk to that person by call is sent, if it is connected, a notification will come and they will be able to talk quietly, if you want to add more people, you just have to select it when speaking, and in the same way it must be true that it is connected.
How many people can do it at the same time?
Currently, and with the new updates to the Snapchat app, we can make video calls with more than 15 people, 16 in total, this opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to communicating, since there can be so many people calling, it's very conducive to office meetings.
Being one of the best candidates to fulfill these purposes, as we know, when we make a call, we have the option to mute the audio or video.
Apparently, if we want to make a call without video, or that the connection is very slow and we want to communicate only via audio with our friends or colleagues, because we have the possibility to add up to double as many people, of which we can add video sharing.
This is used a lot when we only need to communicate via audio, or when it is extremely urgent that there are more than 20 people on the same call, that is, an emergency meeting. To achieve this, you need to connect to a high-speed network, because video calls consume a lot of data, both upstream and downstream.
Tips for making a video call on Snapchat
As we said before, connection is the most vital, so that those famous audio or video cuts that we usually see don't occur. Also, if we are using Snapchat on a PC, we need to close all those Internet consuming programs and stop the downloads that occur at that moment.
Similarly, if we are on our mobile, we have to pause the download of updates from the Play Store or the App Store, depending on whether we have Android or IOS. With this we get that all our connection goes directly to the call and this is as stable as possible.
Another tip you can apply is to place your cell phone or computer in a well-lit place, as the cameras of these devices are generally quite small, limiting a bit the light that can enter through the lens, to reduce this effect we can use rings of light or found in an outdoor place such as the terrace or patio.
Finally, if you decide to do it indoors, you should opt for a room that isolates sound well, to avoid background noise. With which you drastically improve communication.TagsSnapchat
