- To capture different angles and themes at once, Snapchat included a dual camera feature for users.
- There are four different layouts for the dual camera feature, including vertical, horizontal, picture in picture, and cutout.
- Dual Camera is currently available worldwide on iOS, and in the coming months, Android support will be introduced as well.
Snapchat has introduced a new Dual Camera feature that enables users to record or capture pictures using both the front and rear cameras. Most of the Snapchat community has embraced this useful feature as it is handy.
It is interesting that Snapchat was not the first company to introduce the dual camera feature. This feature has been available on the latest social media platform BeReal for a while, and Instagram joined the hype in July of this year.
To use the new dual camera on eligible phones, just open the camera app, tap the on-screen dual camera option and you are done. It is available for Spotlight videos, Stories, and Snaps.
Moreover, the new dual camera feature offers four layouts namely vertical, horizontal, picture-in-picture and cutout. While the first two are self-explanatory, the picture-in-picture mode shows a circular front camera above the rear camera. Cutout mode allows users to take a selfie and insert it into the rear camera image.

Additionally, Snapchat allows users to use creative tools including music, lenses, and stickers. Snapchat Dual Camera is currently available for iPhone XR or later, with support for Android devices coming in near future.
In related news, Snapchat’s revenue may see a bigger drop compared to Apple and Google.
Snap also has a Spotlight Creator Reward program where it gives millions of dollars to eligible Snapchatters who create the best Spotlight Snaps.
“Share what you make with Dual Camera on Spotlight, or if inspiration strikes quickly, create a Snap or Story,” the company said.
Snap announced this month that its premium service, Snapchat+, had reached 1 million subscribers and that the platform had begun rolling out new features allowing users to personalize their experience.
