Galaxy Note9 S Pen does social media

S Pen Drawing on a photo

The S Pen on your Galaxy Note9 can make you more creative and help you stand out on social media. Because when you're creating Stories on Facebook or taking Snaps, you can use the S Pen to make your posts more artistic and charismatic. Soon you will be the next Insta sensation.

Note: The S Pen may not be compatible with all third-party apps.

Gain followers on social media

Many different social media apps, like Snapchat or PENUP, let you draw or write on photos or images. But when you look closely, some people’s posts are a little sloppy, since it’s hard to make fine details with your fingers. The next time you are on Instagram, Facebook, or another app that allows drawing, use your S Pen to make the handwriting or drawings in your Stories more precise and neat. Your posts will look so great, they’ll help set you apart from the crowd.

If you're a heavy Snapchat user, you can have Snapchat open when you hold down the Pen button. From the S Pen remote settings, touch Hold down Pen button to, and then touch Snapchat. Now, all you need to do to open Snapchat is whip out your S Pen, and then hold down the Pen button.
