The Snapchat 2.0 Update Just Introduced Some Awesome New Messaging Features
Say HIYA to stickers and audio messaging.
Just when you thought Snapchat couldn't get any better, along comes their announcement about the big 2.0 update, which is going to change the way you snap forever.
Before you freak out that the face swap filter is going for good, all the features you know and love are staying put. But Snapchat are introducing a whole load of features in an attempt to take on apps like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger and we have to say that it's sounding all kinds of amazing.
It's the 'chat' tab that's the focus of the new update and now alongside sending single snaps, you'll be able to have a much more fun one-to-one convo using their audio and video messaging options.
The audio chats will be a bit like a fully functional phone call, but if you are just chatting via message, there will also be a new line of stickers, sort of like emojis, that will be there for you to send people.
The idea is that they are ready made reactions for you to chat with and best of all, there'll be a library of 200 of them to choose from. They are intuitive too and if you were to type a word like 'love', you could then tap the icon and it will bring up all the stickers related to it.
Here's a little taster:
And this is how it looks in your new chat:
The video chat element also has a bit of a twist and instead of the single snaps you currently send, the video snaps in chat will now loop forever, so receiving a snap will be a bit like getting a GIF hand delivered to your phone.
Sounds good right? Let us know what you make of the update with a tweet to @MTVUK already.
