Snapchat update lets you record video while playing music

There's no need for a second audio source anymore

Snapchat has finally figured out how to integrate music with its service. Thanks to an update currently rolling out on iOS, Snapchat users can record video while still playing music on their phones. Previously when you pressed record, any music playing would automatically pause, an issue that still plagues Instagram, Vine, and even the default video camera on the iPhone. Snapchat's update will let you record music from any music app, and reduces the need for a second audio source to record music from. The update — version 9.2.0 — has not appeared on Android as of yet.
