Snapchat is always introducing new features such as rewind video, Force Touch, Chat 2.0, Filters, Story Playlists, and Lenses. This article will help you know how to use these new features.

Snapchat lenses

Lenses are among the most popular Snapchat features. Snapchat also seems to have taken notice on this, as it is now providing the ability for its users to purchase lenses (with genuine money) so as they can be used anytime. This photo-sharing company scrapped the idea of selling the Lenses, and also to stop this feature from being stagnated, has come up with a new system.

Instead of using the same range of lenses on daily basis, the selection is now being updated daily, getting rid of the oldest lens and then replace it with a new one. Don’t panic, though if you purchased any lenses, they will be permanently available for you.

DID YOU KNOW? Updato offers seamless and guaranteed phone unlocking for any device, carrier and region! It's quick and easy - try it now.

Accessing these lenses can be a problem for many of us. Turn on the camera in a way that the face is on your device’s screen the same you do when taking a selfie. Tap and then hold your own face till you see a mesh. Release it immediately and Snapchat will instantly load the lenses at the side of the app’s capture button.

Many lenses will need you to open your mouth in order to acquire a full effect.

Snapchat Playlists

The latest Snapchat update puts your friends first on the list. This means that you choose a friend whose story you want to view, and also create playlists of your friend’s stories.

Moreover, you can tap on your thumbnails just next to the name of your friends in the right order you do want to create a playlist and then press the paly button at the bottom of your screen.

Add emoji to a Snapchat video

If you are using the latest updated version of the app, you can easily add the emoji stickers to your Snapchat videos.  The stickers can be easily attached to anything in your video and it moves with it.

To add these emoji stickers to your video, you just have to tap add sticker icon, and select your favorite emoji, and then press & hold it to in on your video.

Chat 2.0

Here are new changes in the Chat 2.0

  • Send any photos during audio or video calls.
  • You can send many photos at once
  • Has audio notes which allow you to record audio if you cannot type right now
  • Video Notes which allow you to record 10s of video that will loop when your friend watch.
  • 200 stickers that are available in private chats.

To access this feature, swipe right on any contact that you would like to talk to. This opens a chat window. Tap on the image to your left to send many images, the circle to open the camera, a phone call to begin an audio call and a video icon to begin a video call. Tap on the video icon to send a video message. The same goes for the phone icon when recording an audio.
