Enjoy fast and fun mobile conversation! Snap a photo or a video, add a caption, and send it to a friend. They’ll view it, laugh, and then the Snap disappears from the screen – unless they take a screenshot!
You can also add a Snap to your Story with one tap to share your day with all of your friends.
The best conversations happen when both friends are present, so we’ll let you know if your friend is Here in your Chat so that you can give each other your full attention. And if you're both Here, simply press and hold to share live video - and Chat face-to-face! Happy Snapping!
Please note: even though Snaps, Chats, and Stories are deleted from our servers after they expire, we cannot prevent recipient(s) from capturing and saving the message by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device.
What's New in Version 9.8.0
Bug fixes and improvements!
Newest management ruined the app...
Snapchat would have gotten five stars from me... But under recent management they have ruined the app. The old slogan "if it ain't broke don't fix it" flies true here. The old layout was great. I especially don't like the fact that they took away being able to see best friends. That was one of the coolest, funnest, most innovative features of the app. Now it's gone. Whenever you're texting somebody in the app, if they're typing you can't leave because if you do at the wrong time you lose everything they just wrote and you have to have them type it again. They could at least keep the last text without you're tapping it so that this doesn't happen. And now they've added Discover, which is just a waste of my data. Why would I want a cheap snapchat version of ESPN or NAT GEO when I can get the real things? And they chose CNN over Fox. Really snapchat??? At least make an option for me to delete Discover so I can save my data. I don't ever even look at Discover. Also the new update promised I could zoom during video, but it won't let me. I have an iPhone 4s. Please fix this. So basically, other than the fact that they destroyed every section of the app, great app!!!!
Ok so I'm not here to bash on the update or anything. I don't care about the best friend list or anything. I actually like the emoji "best friends list" given it adds mystery as to who you are to them and blah blah blah but I don't think everyone needs to know who I'm talking to given its just old school mates and coworkers that none of my friends know anyways.
Honestly I really enjoy the app. I don't see why the best friend list was an issue given for my friends and I it caused lots of issues.
I'm just here to say I can't view videos. Some on people's stories and I can't seem to watch ones sent directly to me. Please fix this as I have some very funny and clever friends and it's highly annoying when can't see there funny material, little goof offs, or even what they have to say to me that would probably make my day better at work given I work with the public and they all make me want to pull my hair out.
Another idea is Discover. I think it's a fun and great idea, just slightly annoying if just about every time I open the app and go to my friends stories it wants me to swipe over to discover every time. Normally there's not a whole lot going over there on that interests me. I know it's there when the purple dot in the upper right hand corner is solid and filled in purple and not "clear" or a purple ring... I don't need reminded of it just about every time I open the app.
Please and thank you.
Snapchat is now a guessing game
This app used to be everybody with a smartphone's favorite app, and in a way, is still is. Everybody's favorite feature of the app was the Best Friend feature. When snapchat decided to take it away, people felt like the world was ending. People used this feature as a way of entertainment and to cure curiosity. It helped people see who their friends were communicating with. Even tho snapchat has added a new way to (sorta) see best friends (emojis), it's not the same and no one is satisfied with the update. If you read other reviews and look at Twitter you will see people miss the best friends list feature and want it back. I speak amongst the million snapchat users, please bring back being able to see your friends Best friends again. The emoji update is not pleasing and is confusing and everyone would be much happier with the list of best friends feature back.
