At this point, it’s hard not to know about Snapchat. The selfie dependent app launched in 2011 and its main function is to send your friends pictures that they can only see for maximum 10 seconds long. Snapchat has grown past its original reputation as the “sexting app” and now offers a wide variety of uses, including a unique chat system and great filters. Over the past 5 years, this app has grown into one of the most popular messengers out there! Here are some new features that were introduced in a recent update:
Image emoticons, except in 3D. These emojis adapt to the real environment and can make your Snap just that much better. Simply place one in one of your videos and it reposition itself based on where you are standing. You are able to place more than one emoji in a video, so you can make your stories or Snaps just the way you want them. By choosing a static or an animated emoji, you can not only make the perfect Snap for your friends, but also create the perfect picture for your own personalised phone case!
The Face Swap is arguably one of the most popular feature on Snapchat. Press and hold on your face and replace it with a photo from your gallery of a friend or a famous celebrity. So you will be able to take a photo or make a video as your idol! Do you have a friend next to you? You can use the regular face swap feature if you put both your faces in front of the camera.
Chat 2.0 is another opportunity for Snapchat to go even further! With this new feature, you can send a video or audio message to your friends in a press of a button. In addition to videos and audio, you can send Snapchat’s new and innovative animated emojis. This is certainly an improvement over their previously basic chat system.
Prior to this update, you were only able to insert 33 characters of text into your snaps, but now you can use up to 80 characters, so you can really express how you feel! And once again, with the Face Swap feature, you can become anything you want, even the Mona Lisa!
