If you happen to own a pair of Spectacles that have been collecting dust, a new software update may get you to use them again. Snap is introducing two new features -- Long Snap and Trim -- that address some of its wearable's more notable shortcomings.
The first one allows you to record up to 60 seconds of video as a single Snap. While that might not seem like a big deal, it's a significant improvement over the previous 10 seconds per clip limit. Unfortunately, recording a longer video is just as clunky as it is filming multiple consecutive clips. You have to tap the record button each time you want to extend your Snap by another 10 seconds. If you own an older pair of Spectacles, there's another thing to keep in mind. Snap's first- and second-generation devices can only record up to 30 seconds at once.
