Snapchat is very different now. If you use the app regularly, I'm sure you are already aware of the new "Moments" feature on the app.
Say goodbye to disappearing Snaps with new "Memories" feature
Other social media platforms have also been making a lot of changes to their video content format including live video on Facebook.
Up until the advent of this new feature, Snapchat was known, and loved, for its ephemeral, disappearing content. Alas, that would no longer be the case.
The new "memories" feature will allow users to save and share old (and new) snaps in a private gallery inside the app.
According to The Verge's description, the new feature is “a living, social camera roll in which photos and videos can be organized, edited, and shared long after they are taken.”
What this means is that Snapchat will see more better produced, pre-recorded content rather than the raw feel which made everyone a mega-user.
Other social media platforms have also been making a lot of changes to their video content format including live video on Facebook and Instagram increasing the maximum length of videos to 60 seconds.
So how do you access the memories feature? You can do that by swiping up from the camera screen. Once you're there, your content will appear with the most recent showing at the top.
Within the Memories section, posts that are rectangular are individual snaps, circular posts are stories, and there are also tabs for viewing just stories, just Snaps, or the camera roll on your phone.
You can also search within the Memories section. For example, if you spent a holiday weekend in Abuja, and snapped your way through Asokoro and Gwarimpa, just search "Abuja" and all your Snaps should appear.
With this new feature, the Snapchat game has been changed forever. Enjoy.
