  • This will be especially cool on those phones where the speakers are located at the end of the case, in the same place as the microphone. For example, iPhone.


Previous versions of the application did not provide such a function. If music was playing on your phone, then the moment you started shooting a video, it automatically stopped. This is also the case at the moment with Vine, Instagram and the iPhone camera. So, as you can see, Snapchat now definitely has an advantage. Snapchat’s new feature supports iTunes, Spotify, and SoundCloud.
