Gabb pro Tips

What kinds of videos can you share? Send a friend a happy birthday message. Send your grandparents a video of you telling them about a class field trip.

Gabb pro Tips

To send a video longer than 10 seconds, you’ll need to change the resolution of the video. Here’s how: On the Camera app’s main screen, tap Video. Click on the settings gear at the top left. Select Video Quality and change the setting to MMS. This lowers the quality of your video a little so that you can send a longer video. It’ll be worth it to show your grandparent your game-winning soccer goal or to make a fun video to wish your best friend happy birthday!

Gabb safety Tips

Don’t send videos to anyone you don’t know well. If someone asks you to send a video that makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t respond and tell your parents right away.
