How to Play Snapchat Videos in Reverse

Snapchat Tutorials

Want to play your Snapchat videos backwards, but aren't sure how? Check out our simple tutorial for reversing Snapchat videos here.

I've been an avid user of Snapchat for several years now, and while the company is always finding new and innovative ways to keep its userbase interested, I'm in constant awe of the ways in which the community takes Snapchat's many features and finds ways to elevate their use to a whole new level.

While Snapchat's latest gender-swap filter was all the rage last week, this week the backward or reverse recording feature is taking center stage. While the video reversing Snapchat filter has been around for several years, apparently no one has spent much time exploring just what you can achieve with it. That is, until this week. In a viral trend on social media, Snapchat users are urging their friends to record themselves saying the words "Sigh name cuff" and then play it backward to hear the result. It's surprising, to say the least.

If you've seen some of the posts and are hoping to get in on the fun or are just curious how to get your Snapchat videos to play in reverse, we've put together a simple tutorial to guide you through the process. Check it out below.
