Snapchat Incorporates a New Set of Features for a Better User Experience


Snapchat is one of the most commonly used social media apps on both android and iOS devices. It provides a number of features to keep the users engaged and make the app more interesting for them. Recently, a set of new features has been added to Snapchat that are expected to make your experience with the app even more interesting.

You can now prioritise your friends on Snapchat. You can select that particular friend whose story you want to watch instead of the earlier Auto Advance feature where the stories use to appear automatically one after the other.

In order to create your playlist based on your friend’s stories, you simply need to tap on the thumbnails beside your friends’ names. Next, you need to press the ‘play’ button on the screen in order to complete the creation of the playlist.

A new feature related to Face Swap has also been added recently. Face Swap, as you must know, allows you to change your face with another one. This Face Swap comes with some new facilities in the latest update of Snapchat.

There are certain hidden features too. For example, one can send his or her location. On typing a specific address into the chat, it is displayed in the card that is deep linked into Google or Apple Maps app.

You will also find a hidden search feature for the perfect sticker. This indirectly helps you to use the right sticker while chatting with your friends. The stickers that you will get will depend on the keywords types by you.

The Snapchat users will also be able to view and search links. These links can now be viewed without leaving the app by using the in-app browser. After doing this, one would be required to leave the browser and come back to the chat.

Another thing that you would be able to do is to share a number of photos at the same time. And for a change, all of these photos will be present in your chat history unlike the previous versions of Snapchat where the previous ones used to get deleted.

You can even share videos while chatting. A video with doodle, motion-tracking emoji or text can even be shared. You can also detect whether your friend is online at the same time as you.

In this new version of Snapchat, there are new selfie lenses as well. You can choose from an option of ten different lenses. A rotation of lenses also takes place on a regular basis. In order to use the Snapchat lenses you need to open up the camera, tap on your face and then choose the ideal lense for yourself.

You can select any lense that draws your attention such as the flower crown, doggy ears, hippie sunglasses and so on.

Enjoy Snapchat in a better way with this host of features!
