Snapchat unloads a slew of new features in an update pushed out today

Snapchat adds slow-mo, fast-forward, and rewind video filters

If you’re a Snapchat diehard then you’re going to love the new features the company is introducing to its iOS and Android app. The suite of new tools allow users to add slow motion, fast-forward, or rewind effects to videos, reports TechCrunch.

On top of the new video features, Snapchat is finally supporting 3D Touch for the iPhone 6S and 6S+ today. Users can apply a strong tap on the Snapchat icon to reveal options to send a quick snap to a friend or add a new friend. Nothing groundbreaking, but its a start.

Thanks to  of Techcrunch, he breaks down how the new Snapchat filters work:

  • Slow-Motion – reduces the speed of your video so people can catch the little details, like a dog shaking off
  • Fast-Forward – makes your video play faster, which is great for sight gags of people falling, like in the example up top
  • Rewind – plays your video back at the same speed but in reverse, defying the laws of physics

An update for iOS and Android should be pushed out soon if you haven’t seen it already.
