Did you know that Snapchat went above and beyond what they normally do?
No, I’m not talking about a new built-in feature that the company recently added. Instead, they just release an actual product called Spectacles. This is a smart glasses that’s connected to your Snapchat account.
Here’s how the Snapchat Spectacles work:
You put on the glasses as usual. This time it has a camera in the corner to capture your moment without making you take out your iPhone.
The recorded videos will be saved to your Snapchat Memories, another feature that was released not long ago.
The unique part about the Spectacles is that it produced video snippets in a circular view. The intended purpose is to imitate how a person would see it. Take a look below.
Now, I don’t care if this is a smart glasses or how popular it has become. The problem here is that Spectacles are extremely hard to get. I just want to make my Snapchat videos circular just like how it was recorded using Spectacles.
Luckily, someone came up with the idea for a web app.
If you’re like me who doesn’t give a crap about the glasses and just want to make their recording looks cool, here’s how you can do it.
How to turn your Snapchat videos circular using SnapView
- Go on your computer and click here to open up SnapView
- Click Upload and select a video. A preview of it will be shown
- Click Start to record and Stop to end the recording
Additionally, you can also record your audio. If that’s the case, two separate videos will be generated afterward. One with audio and the other one without video.
From there, you can share your Snapchat Spectacles-like videos via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media channels.
If you have a jailbroken iOS device, you can re-upload it onto Snapchat as well (see tutorial).
