Snapchat has led many Android and iOS users on a frenzy to capture selfies and video clips. And after every click or snap, the conversation just goes on and on. The app has made many new features available which other messaging apps do not.
We take a look at all the features you need to know about in Snapchat.
Video calling your friends may similar to every other video conferencing app. But Snapchat can allow a user to just watch their friends video and continue with voice. It could be a nifty feature if you end up answering the call when you're in the shower.
Once you're done watching your friend's 'story', Snapchat now proceeds to the next video posted by your friends. It does not return to the 'Stories' page by default. Swiping on will be your only option if you want to skip stories, and pulling down on the video will stop the autoplay.
So you want to see Snaps that were taken at college by your friends or fellow college members. Snapchat has introduced Campus Stories that is a location based feature, and can be viewed by users only if they're on the campus or were there in the last 24 hours.
