In the previous year, Snapchat announced its Bitmoji update that brought personalized stickers, allowing its users to have more fun while chatting to their friends and posting interesting Bitmojis. With these pinnable, resizable, and moveable emoji stickers, Snapchat videos just got a lot better. Do you want to try your hand on these new emoji stickers and not sure how to use them? We’ve got a simple tutorial to show you the best way to use emoji stickers in Snapchat videos.
Snapchat sensed you might be getting bored by using its face swap feature, so you can now use emoji stickers in Snapchat videos instead. With this new functionality, you can replace an actual cat’s face with a smirking kitty emoji in a video. It’s not a groundbreaking Snapchat change, but, of course, these subtle additions and iterations are making the app so addicting and fun to use.
