Export Videos from your Snapchat Spectacles

Snapchat came out with these Spectacles in early 2017 – sunglasses with a built-in video camera that sends ten seconds of video to the Snapchat app on your phone!

As a Canadian, my options for getting Spectacles were limited – the Amazon Canada links often list them at 3x their US price, and the American Amazon listings don’t ship north.

I *FINALLY* got my hands on a pair, thanks to my awesome globetrotter of a sister, and of course, my first thought was how I could use these for my YouTube channel.

I was fully expecting this to be an arduous process, involving all sorts of sneaky steps, third party apps, and troublesome troubles. Instead, I was surprised to find out that Snapchat has built in the ability to save these videos to your phone, an attached Dropbox, or any other place you would like!

I go through the quick steps you’ll need to take to save your Spectacle videos outside of Snapchat in this video, and I’ll be using these funky shades to add a little POV colour to my upcoming videos!

One more time, the steps to download the videos:

  1. Open Snapchat
  2. Swipe up from the bottom to access your Memories
  3. Swipe left to the Specs section
  4. Select the video you want to download
  5. Swipe up to Edit & Send
  6. Click on the Share icon (the triangular one with three dots)
  7. Let Snapchat process the video
  8. Select where to save the video from the “Share via” menu
  9. Click the Add button to confirm

That’s it!
