Snapchat has introduced a new unique feature called ‘Snapchat Memories’ that allows users to hold on to their videos and photos for a bit longer than before. It is a shareable and searchable library of snaps that can be accessed within the application. This feature saves the snaps on the Snapchat’s servers that automatically get pulled together as saved snaps that further get divided into different categories based on the location.
Moreover, users can also search using a keyword like a hotel, food, and saloon as well.
The Snapchat Memories feature can be used next month when the users will update the application through the Android and iOS respectively. As soon as it becomes available, the user will receive a snap from the Team Snapchat.
The main camera interface of the Snapchat app has got a new extra icon now that is present underneath the camera button. It has to be swiped up to access the Snapchat Memories. Then, the user can view a series of tabs that will enable him to switch between the viewing stories, snaps and even the contents of his camera roll respectively.
· How to make Memories?
To make a new memory, the user has to develop a snap using all the stickers and the filters of his choice. Then, he should click on the Save icon to download the snap in his gallery or the camera roll. Thus, instead of the snap getting saved in the roll, it will get stored in the Memories section.
Interestingly, a story can be created remarkably through the Memories feature. This can be done under Memories section where he will have to press and hold a particular snap, then tap the /My Snap’ icon on top of the screen. After this has been done, he should tap the ‘Create a story from this snap’ icon, and then choose any additional snaps that he wants to get added as well. Lastly, he can send or save this new snap easily.
But a point to remember is that when a user posts a snap to the story that was taken in the last 24 hours; he will get the frame around it along with the timestamp. Moreover, the eggplant photos if they exist can be deleted under the section of ‘My Eyes Only within the Memories feature. For this, the user needs to press and then hold on to the snap. Then, he should tap ‘My Snap’ and choose the ‘My Eyes Only’ respectively.
The best part of the Memories feature is that snaps that get saved under it can be accessed from other devices as well.
Thus, it can be said Snapchat is good as far it is utilized properly. If the parents do not keep a regular check on the kids, then they need to bear the consequences.
