How to put the bear voice on Snapchat

Want to know How to put the bear voice on Snapchat? Well you are in the right place!

Snapchat is very useful to send out quick Snaps to your friends and family. This is one of the main reasons why I still love this app. Did you know that these snaps only last for less than 24 hours? It is even said that you are unable to recover snaps which are more than 24 hours old.

Well, how old were you when you found out Snapchat also has a hidden voice filter function? Well, I’m using Snapchat for a year now. I learned about this last month!

How to get voice filters on Snapchat

First, you have to make sure that you are using the latest version of Snapchat. To do this open the Android play store or Apple app store and check whether there are any updates available for the app. So if you have the latest version of Snapchat you already have this feature enabled.

AS the name suggests, voice filters have the ability to edit the tone of your own voice. It is true that we were always focusing on Instagram photo/ video filters. Unfortunately till now even I didn’t knew this kind of feature was there on Snapchat. No doubt voice filters are as fun as other kinds of filters.

You can follow below guide to access voice filters.

Step 1) Open Snapchat app.

Step 2) Record a video with your voice as usual.

Step 3) Click and hold the speaker AKA volume button on the left bottom of the screen. Refer to the image below. It will open a new section where you can see several voice filters.

It is true that we knew that speaker icon on bottom left of the screen. We used it to mute video. But we never tried holding it!

Currently, you can find four voice filters in the app

  • Chipmunk: High pitched like Calvin.
  • Bear: Low pitched and rough sounding. (This is what we are looking for)
  • Robot: Do you even need an explanation?
  • Alien: Some high pitched alien sound. try it out.
