Snapchat is testing a new TikTok Duet-like feature, called Remix, that lets users reply to snaps by recording their own Snaps.
The new feature lets Snapchat users remix their friends’ stories and users can select different layouts to do so. The feature is currently undergoing external beta testing and was spotted by an app researcher. Users can create a story and tag their friends to see how creative they can be. Since Snapchat is only testing the Remix feature, it is a little difficult to say when a stable version will be rolled out.
Spotted by reverse engineer @alex193a on Twitter, Snapchat is seen testing the Remix feature. Just like TikTok Duets, Snapchat users can post stories, turn on a toggle to allow friends to Remix and share, then tag their friends, and see who can remix their Snaps the best. Users can use either a side-by-side, a top or bottom or a picture-in-picture layout for recording their Remix videos. The testing was first reported by TechCrunch, which cites the company to claim the feature is currently in external testing.
TechCrunch also reports that Remix feature may make it to other parts of the app, including the Spotlight feature. To recall, a similarly named Remix feature is also being worked on by Instagram for Reels, the same Twitter user reported late last year.
