Importing Photos and Videos
Once Pixy is paired with your phone, it can wirelessly import photos and videos into Snapchat. You’ll find them in Memories. Videos will show full width in 16:9 and photos will be half the screen wide in 4:3.
By default Snaps from Pixy will be imported to Memories, but you can select to import to Memories & Camera Roll (iOS) in the Settings.
Import times may vary, depending on the type and amount of Snaps you’ve taken. The import process can also look a little different, depending on your phone and operating system.
Before importing Snaps
- Verify Pixy has charge
- Turn the dial to standby (STBY)
- Have Pixy close to your phone.
Once that is in place you’re ready to import.
On iOS you will be asked to connect to wi-fi every time you import, this isn’t your home network, it’s the connection between your phone and Pixy.
Open Snapchat, swipe up to Memories. If there are Snaps on Pixy, the bar at the top will tell you the number of Snaps available to import.
Tap here to see the preview and select which Snaps you want to import to Memories; import saves them to Memories, export transfers from Snapchat to your phone memory, and delete erases the Snap.
Once the import is complete the Snaps will be deleted from Pixy, so you have space to take more!
Import with USB
To transfer using USB, go to Pixy Settings and select ‘Import via USB’ and then ‘Enable USB import’.
Pixy will restart and can then be connected to a computer to transfer your Snaps!
When importing you may get a warning about the volume of Snaps you are transferring as it could use up all the remaining flight time. For best results import while Pixy is charging.
If your phone has less than 50Mb of disk space remaining you’ll unfortunately not be able to import until you’ve freed up some more room.
