How to clear the cache on Snapchat

Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps on the market today. The concept of vanishing photos has really caught on with the public and the integration of new filters and creative video formatting options has got allowed the humble app to go toe to toe with the big shots in the social media game.

Snapchat has been evolving through the years and has also tied ups with some leading music labels to allow users to attach branded audio content into their snaps to make them more appealing. Another new feature that Snapchat has started is the monetization feature, and while it is not as significant as the Youtube partner program, it is finally looking like Snapchat wants to allow users to earn through their snaps.

There are two primary ways in which you can create snaps to send to your friends or family –

  1. You can go for the tried and tested photographic style. In this, you can simply click a photo with the built-in camera app on the Snapchat app and then mark it up, add stickers and text. Once you are satisfied, you can send the snap to your friends. You can also decide the duration for which the snap will be available for the recipient.
  2. If photos are not your thing, then you can even send videos to your friends in the form of snaps. Simply use the same camera app to record a video, mark it up, decorate it with stickers or captions, and then send it to the recipient/recipients of your choice.
