Snapchat July 2015 Update – New features And How to Use Them

Snapchat is constantly updating its mobile app to keep enhancing the snapping experience. Previous updates have added a simpler, cleaner look, filters, fonts, messaging and even facetime. I must say that personally I didn’t think that the facetime would be necessary, but I have actually used it quite a bit to share a moment with someone really quick.

The July 2015 snapchat update, also called the version 9. 11. 1 update, ads two main new features. The first new feature allows users to add a photo to their snap code. This is basically like adding a profile picture to your account. To add a picture to your snap code, swipe to the camera screen then swipe down on your screen to reveal your snap code. By tapping on your snap code you will be presented with your snap code with the interior of the ghost displaying the view from your front facing camera. To capture the image just tap the gray circle button below your snap code. After you tap the button it will say ready, set, go, and you it will take three pictures. These pictures will play as a slideshow in your snap code. Other snappers will be able see your snap code picture next to your name when you add them.
The second new feature added in the July 2015 update is the ability to tap once to view entire stories and snaps you receive. This feature is very helpful when viewing long stories that previously you would have to hold for three minutes to view the story. Now you just tap on the story once and it will play through. If you want to skip to the next segment you just tap again. No need to use two fingers.
I have found the new snapchat update very helpful and I can’t wait to see what snapchat comes up with next.
