It’s important for all of us to share the highlights of our lives with our loved ones and just keep in touch with our friends. Previously we had to write letters and send each other pictures. Now, this has been replaced by various messengers or social networks. One of the brightest applications of this type is Snapchat.
It is a very popular messaging platform in social media apps. It allows you to exchange snaps with your friends that disappear after a few seconds. They are essentially short videos or photos. Snapchat has inspired all other social networks to create Stories. Taking selfies and using movies on them has become incredibly popular with teenagers.
What is the zoom problem in Snapchat
The camera in Snapchat allows users to use a variety of filters and masks to decorate their shot or video. But some users encounter problems with zooming in Camera Snapchat. The camera zooms in more than the required area, leading to the cropping of the picture a little more, which results in a bad experience for the user.
How to fix the camera zoom problem in Snapchat
Since many users prefer to take pictures using filter capture apps instead of a regular camera, this problem can be frustrating for many users. There are some of the most effective ways to fix this problem.
You can install the latest security patch on your phone
Since the camera problem is a bug it could be caused by a bug in the software of your phone. There can be some glitch or conflict between the camera app and Snapchat. Usually, phone manufacturers are quick to release patches that can help fix such a problem. In order to install the latest security patch, you need to :
- Go to Settings on your phone
- Find the “Software update” option
- Press it and you will see an option “Check for updates or download updates” depending on your phone
- Click on it and if there is an update available then install it
- Your phone will have to restart itself after the download and installation is finished
You can clear the Snapchat app lens Cache
For some phones, it can be useful to clear the Snapchat app data from time to time. Maybe that’s what caused this error. To clear the cache data of the Snapchat lens, you need to do :
- Open the Snapchat app on your phone
- Once you launch the app go to your profile icon at the top left of the screen
- Once inside, you will see the “Gear-shaped setting icon” to the top right. Click on it
- Find the “Clear lens data” option.
- Then just confirm your action by clicking on “Clear“
What else you can do in this situation
If none of the steps above helped you, you can try to restart your phone, maybe the error was due to some conflict with a previously open application. Restarting the phone will close all applications and you will be able to restart Snapchat. Often it helps to solve the problem.
You can also check for Snapchat updates. Sometimes such bugs occur after a new update. Usually, developers quickly release a hotfix that should help solve this problem. If there is no update and everything was fine at first, the last thing you can do is to delete Snapchat completely from your phone and install it again.
