Snapchat Announced Story Studio, an iOS Video Editing App

Snapchat also unveiled the next-generation Spectacles with AR support

During its annual collaboration summit today, Snapchat revealed Story Studio, a new iOS app that will help edit videos on mobile. It will provide people with editing tools that are specifically designed for mobile, or vertical, images.

The app will use data from Snapchat and its latest Spotlight feature, better known as TikTok’s rival, to help users find out how and what to make. It also introduced the next-generation Spectacles, which would enable augmented reality.

Story Studio would have all of the features that Snapchat users are now used to, such as AR Lenses. The video editor will provide a page with the content “Trending on Snapchat” for users to “get motivated, then get making.”

Story Studio’s key features will be frame-accurate cuts, captions, and layers. With Story Studio, Snapchat differentiates itself from TikTok and Instagram, both of which have an in-app video editor. While they are not the same, this new app appears to be similar to Apple Clips, which was recently updated with new AR interactions provided by the LiDAR scanner.

As of now, the app will be available later this year, and the company has not given any information about an Android edition. Remember that it took a year for Snapchat to be launched on the Android platform.

Aside from Story Studio, Snapchat also updated its Spotlight feature. Video editors can now upload content created in more sophisticated desktop applications. This content can now be uploaded through the web.

Fourth-Gen Snapchat Spectacles

Snapchat also unveiled the fourth-generation Spectacles, which feature dual 3D waveguide screens, a 26.3-degree diagonal field of view, 2,000 nits of brightness, and immersive AR Lens integrations. These Spectacles, which now resemble TV 3D glasses, weigh 134g and are equipped with two RGB sensors, four microphones, and a 15-millisecond motion to photon latency.

Fully integrated with Lens Studio, Spectacles enable creators to build and interact with their Lenses in real time, tapping into Snap’s expansive AR ecosystem.

Unlike previous ones, Snap is not marketing these Spectacles to the general public. It distributes them directly to a variety of AR effects creators through an online applications program. Snapchat wants developers to “explore new ways to combine fun and utility through immersive AR” with just 30 minutes of battery life.
