Mindie is an app that used to allow users to put songs on their Snapchat videos before it was blocked by Snapchat. Now Snapchat has its own official feature that does essentially the same thing but in a different way. It does this by recording the music that you’re playing on your phone and includes it in the video.
Snapchat has finally solved the issue of integrating music with video posts. Thanks to the newest update, you can now record a video while playing music on your phone and this will then play back in the video as well. If you went to record a video before the update, any music you were playing would automatically pause. This is an issue that still looms over Vine, Instagram and the iPhone’s default camera, so Snapchat has certainly got an advantage. Snapchat’s new feature works with iTunes, Spotify, and SoundCloud. Controversially, the update came after Snapchat blocked Mindie, an app that let users pick songs to accompany their videos.
