How To Cut A Snapchat Video

Have you ever captured an awesome moment on Snapchat and wished you could save it or share it outside of the app? Well, you’re in luck because in this article, I’ll show you how to cut a Snapchat video and make it ready for sharing on other platforms.

The Need to Cut Snapchat Videos

Snapchat is a popular social media platform known for its fun filters and disappearing content. However, the downside is that once you capture a video on Snapchat, it’s only accessible within the app. This limitation can be frustrating if you want to share a specific part of a video or save it for future reference.

As an avid Snapchat user myself, I’ve often encountered situations where I wanted to trim down a video to highlight the best parts or remove unnecessary content. Fortunately, there are a few methods you can use to achieve this.

Method 1: Using Third-Party Apps

One of the easiest ways to cut a Snapchat video is by using third-party apps specifically designed for video editing. These apps offer various features and functionalities that allow you to trim, cut, and edit your videos with ease.

One popular app that I recommend is InShot. It’s available for both iOS and Android devices and offers a user-friendly interface. To get started, follow these steps:

  1. Download and install the InShot app from your respective app store.
  2. Open the app and select the “Video” option.
  3. Choose the Snapchat video you want to cut from your device’s gallery.
  4. Once the video is imported, you’ll see a timeline at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Drag the start and end markers on the timeline to select the portion of the video you want to keep.
  6. After selecting the desired portion, tap on the “Trim” button to cut the video.
  7. Finally, tap on the “Save” button to save the trimmed video to your device.

Using InShot or similar apps, you can easily trim and cut your Snapchat videos to your desired length. Plus, these apps often provide additional editing features like adding text, filters, or music to enhance your videos even further.

Method 2: Screen Recording and Editing

If you prefer not to use third-party apps, another method to cut a Snapchat video is by using screen recording and video editing tools available on your device.

For example, on iOS devices, you can use the built-in screen recording feature. Here’s how:

  1. Open Snapchat and navigate to the video you wish to cut.
  2. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center.
  3. Tap on the screen recording button to start recording.
  4. Play the Snapchat video and let it record until the desired part is captured.
  5. Swipe down from the top-right corner of the screen or tap on the red recording indicator on the status bar to stop recording.
  6. The recorded video will be saved to your device’s gallery.

Once you have the recorded video, you can use your device’s default video editing app (e.g., iMovie on iOS or Adobe Premiere Rush on Android) to trim the video and remove unwanted parts.


By using either third-party apps or screen recording and editing tools available on your device, you can easily cut Snapchat videos and make them ready for sharing on other platforms. Whether you want to highlight a funny moment, share a tutorial, or simply save a memorable Snapchat video, these methods will help you achieve your goal.

Remember to respect the privacy and rights of others when sharing or editing videos. Always obtain proper consent before sharing or using someone else’s content.

So go ahead and give it a try! Start cutting those amazing Snapchat videos and share them with the world!
