If you are a Snapchat user with an iOS device, it would interest you to know that Snapchat for iOS received an update today. One which is designed to let users share links or photos from third-party apps with friends and to set specific timer for location sharing.
This makes sharing of content so much easier than having to copy and paste from another app.
So henceforth, iOS users can use the Share Sheet in an app like Twitter to share content or links in a direct Snapchat message.
That’s not all, a “Ghost Mode” feature has also been added, it allows users to temporarily disable location sharing for up to 24hours.
Snapchat is also being updated to let you do more.
What’s New in Version 10.20.0.0
– Press and hold on a friend’s name to watch their Story, send them a Snap, and more.
– Tap the share button in another app to send links or photos to friends on Snapchat. If Snapchat doesn’t appear in the share menu, tap (…) to add it!
– Choose how long you’d like to remain in Ghost Mode on the Snap Map.
Snapchat is an image messaging and multimedia mobile application created by Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, former students at Stanford University, and developed by Snap Inc., originally Snapchat Inc. One of the principal concepts of Snapchat is that pictures and messages are only available for a short time before they become inaccessible. The prototype for Snapchat was started by Brown and Spiegel as a project for one of Spiegel’s classes at Stanford, where Spiegel was a product design major. Beginning as “Picaboo”, the idea was to create a selfie app (application) which allowed users to share images that were explicitly short-lived and self-deleting.
