Technology has been bringing people closer for years, and apps like Snapchat have been widely popular among the tech savvy population, as it allows people to share emotions through pictures, and now it has come up with a whole set of new features, which will allow users to do a lot more.
The Chat 2.0 which is described as a way to “say what you want, how you want”, allows users to change medium of communication during a conversation depending on what they wish to say, making Snapchat a very human way to chat, Tech Crunch reported.
As the popular app is undergoing a massive transition, here are the most interesting changes.
Snapchat Stories on auto-advance:
This feature allows the next story on the list to start playing by itself as soon as a user swipes left or finishes watching a friend’s story. This feature makes for easy viewing and encourages people to post more.
More than 200 Stickers:
Over the past few years, Stickers with specific messages have become a way of telling much more without actually sending a message, and hundreds of them have now been added to private chat, as Stickers like love you and hungry will pop up instantly when a user looks for stickers.
Words can’t always convey emotions the way that look on your face does, and for this Video Notes in Chat allow users to record 10 second, thumbnail sized GIF, so that one can react with a facial expression, and recipients can also play audio.
Some things sound better when you say it, or the Audio Notes could come handy when a user is moving and cannot type. Like Video Notes, it allows a user to send short voice snippets for effective communication.
Video and Audio Calls:
If Video Notes and Audio Notes are not enough for you to give a more visual appeal to your conversation, you can just call up your friends even when a recipient isn’t talking to you, turning Snapchat into a calling service, and one can further do more with videocalling.
Sharing more pictures:
Snapchat will now allow users to send multiple pictures at a time and mark them with text, drawing and filter tools, and they can also send camera roll photos to show something to the recipient during Video or Audio Calls.
