Snapchat Introduces New Features

Created by former Standford Students Snapchat has become one of the popular multimedia mobile applications, which is primarily used to send instant messages and pictures to friends and family that are made visible for a short period of time before they become inaccessible, to make the app more interesting and useful new features have been introduced.


The maximum time that a Snapchat user can view and set on a snap was only ten seconds, but now the new limitless space feature allows users to set timers on snaps to infinity so that the recipient can view the snap for as long as they want and once the recipient closes the snap it will disappear. Reads a blog post from Snapchat reports USA Today says, “We’ve all felt the frustration of not being able to fully enjoy a Snap – even after replaying it – and we wanted to give you the option of allowing the recipient to enjoy your Snap as long as they’d like”.


Along with limitless space feature on snapchat, there are few more features that have been added such as a magic eraser, which allows the users to remove the objects on snap, Snapchat users can draw images using an emoji, all they have to do is to select an emoji from the creative tool and can draw or write on a photo. Another fun feature added on the updated version is looping videos, users can make videos on Snapchat to loop endlessly by tapping on the looping icon while making the video.
