Snapchat to launch ‘Custom Stories’ feature
While all social media platforms are trying to introduce their own variants of popular feature ‘Stories’ of Snapchat, the app is working on a new feature for the same.
Snapchat will be in a little while introducing ‘Custom Stories’ feature for its app. These ‘Stories’ will only be viewed by a definite bunch of users’ friends and not every person. You can send an invite to your friends to add Snaps to the Story as well. In addition, there is a choice of transporting this request to friends of friends by utilizing custom geofence alternative in a particular area.
Much like ordinary ‘Stories,’ ‘Custom Stories’ would vanish after a time span of 24 hours. On the other hand, they can stay for extended period, provided user puts in new content to these ‘Custom Stories’. In addition, custom-made emoji tool Bitmoji will soon be accessible on Snapchat as well. For those who are not aware, Bitmoji is an app purchased by Snap Inc. (parent company of Snapchat) that permits users to create custom-made cartoon characters of themselves. Users can alter the expressions of their characters through the settings of the app.
To incorporate Snapchat and Bitmoji, it is obligatory to have an account on both the platforms and connect them. As soon as this is done, Bitmoji will come into view in the app within the Snapcode. Both of these functions are anticipated to be accessible on iOS and Android apps of Snapchat soon. Earlier this month, it was declared that users will soon be capable of viewing Snaps for as long as they can, provided that the user has checked the selection. Senders will be allowed to do this by going in the Snap photo timer and choosing the infinity icon present there. On the other hand, these Snaps would still vanish when the receiver ends it.
The same report also summed that with next update of Snapchat, users will be allowed to draw with emojis, make their Snapchat videos loop endlessly, and use a ‘magic eraser’ to confiscate items from their Snaps.
Well, let us see if this feature will attract the masses or not.
