How To Get Dancing, Moving Bitmoji On Snapchat

Last week Snapchat added another update to the app that integrated Bitmoji. This time the update allowed users to add their animated, 3-D Bitmoji to their Snaps. A Bitmoji is essentially a personalized emoji that users can link with their Snapchat.

Snapchat bought the company Bitstrips, creator of the Bitmoji app, in 2016 and later that year introduced the feature that allowed users to use their Bitmojis in the app. At first users could add their Bitmojis to their photos and videos, similar to how they could add text or other emojis or stickers.

The new update makes the Bitmoji characters 3-D though and animates them doing regular activities, like skateboarding or dancing. Before this, Snap introduced “actionmojis” to the Snapmap feature, showing Bitmojis on a map.

Just launched by Snapchat: 3D Bitmojis. If you have a Bitmoji you need to check yourself out in 3D today . ... hilarious.

Users on Twitter liked the update, many compared it to the little animated character that was on the show Lizzie McGuire.

How to get the animated Bitmoji on Snapchat:

First, you need to have the Bitmoji app and a Bitmoji of yourself already made. Once you have this done, connect Bitmoji to Snapchat. To do this, go to the settings section of Snapchat, represented by the gear wheel, tap it and then select Bitmoji and link it with Snapchat.

Once you’ve done this, the second thing you need to do is make sure that your Snapchat app is up to date and that its running on the latest version of software available. Do this by checking the “updates” part of the App Store or Google Play on your device.

The update rolled out to users last week on iPhone and Android, so you should have it already. Once you’ve completed these two steps, you should be able to start using the 3-D Bitmoji. Open the rear-facing camera and tap anywhere on the screen to pull up the lenses. You’ll see them appear to the right of the capture button.

The Bitmoji options simply have a single icon to represent that Bitmoji activity. Currently, there’s one that looks like a skateboard that will put your Bitmoji boarding on whatever surface you choose. One of the first lenses showed the Bitmojis doing yoga.

The new 3-D Bitmoji function on Snapchat shows user Bitmojis doing activities like yoga and skateboarding. Snapchat

Once you pick a 3-D action for your Bitmoji to do, you can adjust the size so that it fits in its surroundings and you can watch it get moving. To make the Bitmoji smaller pinch the screen the way you would to zoom out, to make it bigger do the opposite. Your Bitmoji will go through a series of moves that are set for each of the surroundings.

Once you capture a photo or video of your Bitmoji in action you can either add it to your story or send it directly to friends.

How To Get Snapchat's 3D Bitmoji, Because You Need A Dancing Mini-Me In Your Life

by Casey Suglia

My Bitmoji knows me better than I know myself. No matter how I am feeling or appearing, there is always a Bitmoji to sum up my emotions perfectly — and it isn't because I customized the cartoon to look like me (although that helps). Last week, Snapchat unveiled new 3D Bitmoji filters. And if you haven't caught on by now, you need to know how to get Snapchat's 3D Bitmoji so your Bitmoji can be even more of a mini-me...or mini-you for that matter.

Accessing the 3D Bitmoji feature on Snapchat is much like those 3D-like filters that everyone used and still continues to use. In 2015, Snapchat introduced these special lenses as a way for people to get creative in the ways they talked to their friends. In the two years since then, dog ears have become a permanent mainstay on everyone's head — and the lenses are the perfect way to entertain a bored kid for hours on end. But now we've entered a new era — one where your 3D Bitmoji can replace you altogether instead. If you haven't already accessed these 3D Bitmojis, or if they aren't showing up on your phone, then you're more than likely confused. But you don't have to be left in the dust and out of the fun.

Getting Snapchat's 3D Bitmoji onto your phone is super simple if you just follow these quick and easy instructions.

Download Bitmoji (If You Haven't Already)


In order to get 3D Bitmoji integrated into Snapchat, you have to download Bitmoji first. If you haven't downloaded the app yet, you're not alone. Up until two months ago, I too, did not have Bitmoji downloaded (the horror).

Once Bitmoji is on your phone, use it to customize your avatar to look just like you. With Bitmoji on your phone, you can activate a keyboard and use them in text messages (exactly like emoji) or you can use it with other apps, like Snapchat.

Make Sure All Of Your Apps (Ahem, Snapchat) Are Updated


3D Bitmoji is a part of Snapchat's newest update. If your app is still stuck in an outdated version, you might not be able to access the new 3D Bitmoji feature. So head into the App Store on your phone and make sure a Snapchat update isn't pending and that all of your apps are up to date. This way you're not looking for a feature that doesn't exist.

Link Bitmoji With Snapchat


If you already use the 2D Bitmojis in Snapchat, you can skip over this step. But if you haven't linked Bitmoji with Snapchat, do it now. It is super simple. All you have to do is click on the yellow ghost icon at the top of the camera screen, and click on the gear icon on the top right corner. Once you're there, click Bitmoji, and request permission for Snapchat to link to your Bitmoji app. Once you click on that, it will basically walk you through the rest of the very simple process.

Go To Your Camera Screen & Press The Center Of The Screen


Once those steps are complete, now is your chance to finally access your 3D Bitmoji. Head to the camera screen and tap on the center of the screen, like you would to access any of the "elemental" lenses.

Another way to do this is to put the camera into selfie mode, access your selfie lenses, and then flip the camera around using the camera icon in the top right corner. I personally find this to be a little less time consuming.

Pick Your 3D Bitmoji Filter...


Using the filter selection tools at the bottom, go ahead and try out your different 3D Bitmoji options. There are a few fun scenarios for your 3D that are currently available — with emotions ranging from happiness (a dancing 3D Bitmoji) to impatience (waiting at a vending machine) to desperately needing coffee (my current state, all the time).

... & Have Fun!


Now that you have 3D Bitmoji on Snapchat, now is your chance to go wild and have fun with your mini-me. Feel free to use the coffee filter during your 8 a.m. work shift to show your friends how exhausted you are. Or, place your dancing Bitmoji on top of your dog and send a video to everyone to show how cute your pup is.

The 3D Bitmoji is the perfect way to send pictures to friends on those days when you're just not feeling the way you look or feel, but still want to keep people updated. Never has your Bitmoji seemed more real or lifelike until now. So, thank you, Snapchat.

Snapchat on Android: Everything you need to know

Snapchat is one of the biggest social networks, and perhaps the most polarizing to download. There are a ton of people, young and old, who just can't understand why anyone would want to send pictures and messages that just disappear as soon as you look away (well, other than the specific target that everyone seems to understand)) .

I've been an avid Snapchat user since the day it hit the Play Store, and admittedly, even I find it hard to express to naysayers why myself and many of my friends find this so exciting. Despite the poignancy in the last paragraph, I've never used the platform to send (or receive) nude photos, and it's no secret that Snapchat for Android has poorer image quality and slower feature rollouts than its iOS counterpart.

But all this is not enough to keep me and millions of others from exchanging countless self-destructing photos, videos and messages every day. It's a great way to keep up with your friends' private lives, get a glimpse of what's going on behind the scenes with your idols, and quickly share photos and videos that just don't have enough mass appeal to immortalize on Instagram or Twitter.

So maybe it's time to stop asking questions about why Snapchat is so popular and instead start figuring out... how the hell do you use it?

How to use Snapchat

Last year, Cella already covered the basics of Snapchat extensively, from its formative story to navigating its curvy user interface and, of course, lenses and filters. It's still a great read with lots of information, so let's not dwell too much on its basics - just know that the three-pane layout hasn't changed much, lenses are still one of the funniest parts of Snapchat, and disappearing messages still persist. . so finicky and disappointing as always.

Not now, Snapchat, grown-ups are talking… on Slack.

But here's the thing: while Cella's article is still relevant, Snapchat has added a lot of new features over the past year, and it's gotten a lot more complicated as a result. Several gestures have been remapped to make room for new features, so even if you've used Snapchat before, you may need to re-learn a few shortcuts if you haven't been active in a while.

What does my account mean?

You used to be able to swipe down from anywhere in the viewfinder to access your Snapchat profile, but this has been remapped to a button in the top left corner (represented by your avatar) to make room for a mixed Snapchat search feed.

Once you get to your profile, you'll see a seemingly random number next to your username. This number is your Snapchat "account", but what does that mean? The answer is actually quite simple - it's just the number of pictures you've sent and received in your account history.

To get more credits, tap the trophy icon under your username to go to your suitcase. This is very similar to Xbox Live Achievements; Snapchat gives you small rewards for different ways you can send snaps and otherwise use the app (like zooming while shooting a video, snapping in certain weather conditions, saving stories to your memories, etc.). These trophies offer little more than bragging rights among your friends, but they're a fun way to prank Snapchat and keep collectible fans coming back.

How can I use Snapcodes?

While you're on your profile, it's impossible not to notice the giant colorful yellow block above all your information. This block, called your Snapcode, is very similar to a QR code; Place one in the Snapchat viewfinder, then press and hold the button on the screen to instantly add the Snapcode owner to your friends list. Everyone's shot looks a little different, with black dots arranged in different patterns, and you can further personalize your own code by creating a Bitmoji and then selecting a Bitmoji Selfie - essentially emojis based on your face.

This search bar is a mess.

Yes, that's right. But let's get this straight. You can use the search bar to find anything from friends to related stories and search tags. Just below are some of the most relevant tags and a long scrolling list of top stories people have contributed to. If you're looking for a specific type of content, you can scroll through the various categories under the main stories, ranging from nightclubs and bars around you to concerts, animals, and travel.

At the very bottom of the search bar is a three-column section that lists your recently added friends, offers to add new people, and connects to your phone's address book to find contacts from Snapchat.

What is Bitmoji?

Bitmoji are those little animated characters that you've probably seen with your friends in your stories. You can download the Bitmoji app from the Play Store and then create your own cartoon caricature that integrates with your Snapchat account for multiple personalized effects to use in your snaps. From there, you can put your Bitmoji into your Snapcode, use it with stickers, or choose from multiple 3D animations in the lens selector to add to your snaps.

Shazam integration

Music recognition seems like an odd feature of the photo-sharing platform, but it's handy nonetheless. snap Inc. and Shazam partnered back in December last year, and since then you can tap and hold on the camera screen (the same way you access lenses) and Shazam starts listening and telling you what song is playing in the background.

Once you've identified a song, you can choose to send it to your friends, post it to your story, or simply reject it and come back to it later - each song you identify is stored in the Shazam tab in settings, where you can find links to play the song in Google Play Music or Spotify, open lyrics and music videos, or remove any guilty pleasures you may have identified.

Bind card?

If you specify an image from the camera's viewfinder, you'll be taken to a Snap Map where you'll see your Bitmojis at your exact location on a map powered by the open source Mapbox platform. As you scroll through the map, you'll start to find your friends' Bitmoji, as well as some location-based stories. You can tap a friend's Bitmoji to see when their location was last updated - that's basically just the last time they opened Snapchat.

This is a cool feature to turn on when you're on a social network and want your friends to find you, but it can feel too invasive and even dangerous to broadcast your location when you're at home. Luckily, you can choose who can see your location in the settings, or opt out of the feature entirely by turning on ghost mode.

About the dancing hot dog…

You've no doubt seen somewhere around the internet as an anthropomorphic dancing hot dog as pictures of your friends or as the subject of a Twitter meme. This hilarious, outspoken one happened to become Snapchat's unofficial second mascot (the first was Ghostface Chillah, the white ghost in the company's logo) and the most visible of its augmented reality lenses.

To use AR Snapchat features, press and hold anywhere on the camera screen until a scrolling list of round icons appears at the bottom of the screen next to the shutter button. As always, you'll find various face filters, but added to the mix are the rotation of 3D characters (including your Bitmoji, hot dog, and more) that attach themselves to surfaces in the room around you. If you're unhappy with their placement, you can move these characters around, resize them, and even move around them to see different viewing angles.

To be honest, this is the feature that finally sold me on Bitmoji. Sure, it's silly, but so is the rest of Snapchat, and it's fun to see you replicate yourself in so many different ways.

When 10-second snaps are not enough

Snapchat recently added support for its Multi-Snap feature on Android, which allows users to bypass the built-in 10-second recording limit. Just keep holding the camera button after the red ring fills up to record up to six consecutive shots, all of which can be transferred to your story or sent to a friend at the same time.

Each clip is displayed as a card that can be deleted individually, although you cannot edit each card individually; any added filters, text, or stickers are applied to the shared Multi-Snap.

Sending money to Snapchat

One of the features I use the most on Snapchat is Snapcash, which allows you to send money to your friends (and vice versa), just by typing the amount in the chat window. Both sender and recipient will need to enable Snapcash, which is as simple as linking your debit card details in settings.

It could be argued that almost every banking app now has direct transfer options available, but Snapcash comes in handy when both parties don't go through the same bank. Receipts are available in settings and all exchanges are handled by Square and not directly by Snapchat.

Add a URL to your Snaps

One of the best marketing features in Instagram Stories, Snapchat's biggest competitor, is the ability to add links in posts, but unfortunately it's only available for business accounts with both at least 10,000 subscribers. Snapchat has taken note and brought this feature to their platform, without the intrusive business account restrictions.

To add a link to a snapshot, simply click the paperclip icon in the editor and type or paste the desired URL. Snapchat will open the link using its built-in browser, download the mobile version if possible, and confirm that you've entered the correct link. Once added, you can make any other changes and then send the snapshot as usual. Recipients will be able to swipe up to visit the linked page, and you can share the snap with your story for maximum exposure.

Memories are like your own Google Photos Snapchat

Snapchat is ephemeral by nature, but sometimes you take a picture you just don't want to forget. Luckily, swiping up from the camera feed reveals Memories, which backs up any snaps you choose to save to the cloud using Snapchat's servers. Like Google Photos, it's completely free with unlimited storage for your Snapchat photos and videos, and you can set any posts you post to automatically save to your Memories in Settings.

When viewing your memories, you can click on an old snap to view a full size image and long press the preview button to export it to your phone's gallery, delete a snap from memory, or even edit and resend the picture. Snapchat used to put a big white box around old images, but now it just shows the age of the message in the top left corner.

Okay, I'm familiar with Snapchat. What about points?

Arguably the most ambitious move Snapchat has made since its inception is Spectacles sunglasses. With an unmistakably quirky design, a constantly moving pop-up vending store, and a built-in camera that has caused numerous privacy issues, Spectacles has garnered a lot of attention over the past year.

But what exactly do glasses do? Once you connect them to your phone via Bluetooth, all you need to do is press the button at the top of the left frame (right above the camera) and the glasses will start capturing an eight-second video. An LED indicator lights up next to the right lens to alert others that you're recording, and when the video ends, it'll sync to your phone the next time you open Snapchat with the glasses turned on.

The videos are accurate from a precise point of view, but the unique part of Spectacles is that they record circular video that works natively with Snapchat for a much more immersive experience. The video flips to fill your phone's entire screen, giving the illusion of a standard rectangular capture, but works with the accelerometer to follow your phone's orientation, changing the displayed content as you rotate your phone. It runs very smoothly, and once you start playing with performance videos, it becomes addictive.

Still have questions about glasses? You're in luck - there's Mr. Mobile's video for that.

Having problems?

Snapchat isn't perfect, and from time to time you may experience issues with logging in, sending snaps, or other malfunctioning features. Fortunately, this is usually easy to fix.

Let us know your favorite ways to use Snapchat in the comments below and we'll update the article as new features for Snapchat on Android become available.

How to make your Bitmoji listen to music on Snapchat

Snapchat's Snap Map feature displays your current physical location to people you want to share this information with. As long as you have the Snapchat app open and don't turn on Ghost Mode, your friends and family will see your Bitmoji - your custom animated avatar - at your current location on their Snapchat map. When you change your physical location, your Bitmoji will move around the map.

This will happen whenever you attend a concert or music festival. The Snap Map feature contains a regularly updated list of concerts, festivals, and other local events, with their respective locations on the map.

When you're in one of these places, not only will your Bitmoji dance, but your friends will be able to see the exact concert you're attending in a bubble next to your Bitmoji.

Other cool things your Bitmoji can do

As mentioned, there are many other fun things your Bitmoji can do.

For example, if it's your birthday, your Bitmoji gets a balloon and matching birthday hat for the whole day. Of course, for this to work, you'll first need to set your birthday in Snapchat's settings.

That's not all. Let's take a look at five more fun things you can do with your Bitmoji:0005

Airplane flight: If you open Snapchat at the airport, your Bitmoji will board a plane and fly to your destination.

Take your Bitmoji for a ride: If you drive with the Snapchat app open, your Bitmoji will be shown as the lead vehicle.

Take a break while traveling: If you are standing near the airport, your Bitmoji will be shown as a break with luggage on your back.

Take your Bitmoji to the beach: Go to the beach, open the Snapchat app, and your Bitmoji will start making sandcastles.

Play a round of golf: visit a Snapchat open golf course and play golf with a Bitmoji.

How to protect your privacy on Snapchat

While playing with your Bitmoji is undoubtedly fun, it's worth considering privacy here. This feature allows your friends to always see where you are and what you are doing.

Fortunately, if you don't want others to know where you are or what you're doing, you can adjust your privacy settings on Snapchat. There are three ways to do this:

  1. On the settings screen, choose who can see your location on the anchor map.
