If you are a big Snapchat fan and favor the service ahead all others in the same league, it's mostly due to the fact that service comes with a tag of self-destructing photo-sharing service. However, it seems like the company took that feature a notch up.
According to reports, Snapchat has pushed out probably the biggest update for its service which brings over video chatting and instant messaging service to the app.
Until now, the biggest selling point of the app was the feature where photos would self-destruct (delete) after 10 seconds, meaning the receiver has to always be online to view the sent photos.
"With our last product update, we honored the true nature of storytelling - every Story has a chronological order - a beginning, middle, and end. We built Stories to help Snapchatters create narratives and share them with all of their friends in just one tap," the official blog post states.
"But until today, we felt that Snapchat was missing an important part of conversation: presence. There's nothing like knowing you have the full attention of your friend while you're chatting."
Also, apart from the new features, the app also comes with a new look, with new icons and buttons. Users can now use swipes to navigate through the app, making it look better.
To start a conversation with a friend, users will just need to swipe to the right from the main camera screen which then offers a list of all the user's friends.
