Snapchat wants four new features to win the competition against Instagram. From now on, the Limitless Snaps and other novelties can be used in the Android and iOS app.
Snapchat has announced the launch of four new features. Recently, a fresh update for the mobile apps of the service is available, which brings the innovations with it. To use them, you just have to update the app using the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.
Shipped snaps have always disappeared after 1 to 10 seconds, depending on what you chose. However, the “Limitless Snaps” feature introduced now allows you to increase the duration to infinity. The receiver has the possibility to watch the snap as long as he wants. However, the image is deleted when the message is closed.
Also for videos, there is now a new feature that resembles the Limitless Snaps. If you select the repeat icon, the recorded video will be played at the receiver until the message is closed. The snap will also be deleted.
In the toolkit, which is now displayed vertically, you will also find a new function called “MagicEraser”. This allows you to quickly and easily remove unwanted spots in shot pictures. The object is then replaced by a background that is calculated from the environment.
Draw with Emoji
The last new Snapchat feature is “Draw with Emoji” – an option that allows you to pimp your own image with numerous emojis. As with a brush, the faces can be added in masses and short comments can be created, for example.
