To use Snapchat's Director Mode, follow these steps:

  1. Open the latest version of the Snapchat app.
  2. Locate the Director Mode icon on the right side of the camera screen, represented by a rounded camera icon with a small star inside.
  3. Tap the Director Mode icon to access various advanced video editing tools.
  4. Choose your preferred tool(s), such as green screen, variable playback speed options, improved editing tools, or dual camera controls for creating 360° content.
  5. Create your content and post as usual. Note that Android users might experience a limited set of features initially, but Snapchat intends to bring a complete rollout soon.

Director Mode offers creators more control over their content, potentially leading to higher engagement and visibility on Snapchat's Spotlight page. It's designed to enhance user experiences and encourage participation in the Spotlight Fund, which compensates select creators based on the performance of their content.
