Does the snapchat reverse filter reverse the audio too?

When you use the reverse filter in snapchat it reverse the full video sounds as well. This can be problematic for users, especially when they are using with a background music or voice. The audio will appear in reverse order as well. Unfortunately, snapchat doesn’t have the filter to keep the audio intact while reversing a video.

You can do one thing such as going to the edit option and disable the audio and save it to your camera roll. Then you can reupload the video from the camera roll and add the audio manually by going to the edit option again.

Although it is an easy step, the final results may not be as satisfactory as you have expected. There might be some synchronizing issue or the audio will fall all over the place.

If you want to keep the real audio and reverse the video in a single process, you can use a third-party applications (we have used filmora, you can choose any other video editor of your choice)

Reverse only the video 

Open the filmora app and load the file by click on the media button. 

Click on the arrow button next to the import option and choose “import from camera or phone” in the drop down menu.
