Conventionally, Apple Watch can be used as a remote shutter for the default iPhone Camera app. Now what if someone wants to take a few selfies or group shots with some other app?
Thanks to Reddit user JaJaWa, you can now take Snapchat photos (or other third-party photo/video apps) using the Apple Watch as your shutter.
How To Take Snapchat Photos Using Apple Watch
- Open up Snapchat
- Enter the camera view to take a new photo
- Pick up your Apple Watch and open the ‘Now Playing‘ glance – this is done by swiping up from the bottom of the watch screen then swiping right or left again until ‘Now Playing’ glance shows up.
- Rotate the Digital Crown to take a picture.
This trick is not limited to Snapchat as it has been tested to work with Hyperlapse from Instagram, Camera+, Flickr, Manual and other photo/video apps that use volume controls for shutter function.
Note: This trick will not work with Instagram, PhotoStudio, VSCOcam.
