Snapchat bug allows users to record longer videos

The video quality degrades after 10 seconds.

By CBR Staff Writer

A bug in the Snapchat app for iOS is allowing users to record videos beyond 10-second timeline set by the app.

The bug allows users to record the clip for as long as they want and add it to their Snapchat Story.

However, post 10 seconds, the quality of the video degrades, and when sent to friends via the app the video is automatically cut off after a 10-second clip, reported The Verge.

Users can start recording longer videos by holding their finger down on the screen and double tap the home button to multitask. The snap will keep recording until the user re-enters Snapchat.

According to reports, the bug has not affected Android because of the way the operating system handles multitasking.
The company is likely to patch the bug soon, which will disable the feature.
