You can quickly reverse your desired video on Snapchat regardless of the device you are using; whether you are using an Android device or IOS, in both choices, you can get the reverse video feature as a built-in Snapchat feature.

  • At first, launch your Snapchat app and instantly capture a video by using the round shutter button. (You can tap & hold the shutter button for up to 10 seconds to create a video of your desire)
  • Swipe left on your filmed Snapchat video to access the reverse filter. (You might need to swipe left for 6 to 8 times until you see 3 arrows in the center of your video screen pointed towards the left)
  • The above-mentioned 3 arrows will readily activate the reverse filter on your video.
  • Then, you can share this video either as your Snapchat story, or you can send it to your Snapchat friends directly. (This step will require internet connectivity on your respective device.)
  • In case if you don’t have internet service, then you can save this reversed video to your device storage locally for later usage.

Note: You are not confined to applying this reverse filter only to a video captured via the Snapchat app; however, if you have already a video snapped by any other camera or application, then you can apply this reverse filter too.
