Snapchat now lets you record 60-second videos with Multi-Snap

Snapchat now lets you record 60-second-long Snap videos. The picture- and video-sharing app has just added Multi-Snap recording functionality to the Android app, several months after the feature came to iPhone users. Previously, the maximum length of a Snap was 10 seconds.

To record a longer Snapchat video, all you need to do is tap and hold the circular Record button, and keep holding it for up to 60 seconds.

Though your recording will play continuously when you send it to your friends or add it to your Story, Snapchat splits it into several 10-second segments, which appear in small windows right above the Record key.

You can edit all of these individually, and even delete some. If you edit some sections differently to others or get rid of some, however, the resulting clip could look very strange.

Multi-Snap was first introduced in July, but until now it has only been available to iOS users. It’s a useful bit of functionality, which lets you capture a lot more action. This feature could also bring more people back to Snapchat from Instagram Stories, which let you record a maximum of 15 seconds of footage.
