All those who were waiting for Snapchat to update, they can all finally take a sigh of relief as the app has finally come up with some amazing changes that everyone was hoping for. One of the major changes after update is that you no longer have to hold your finger on the screen for you to see stories or snaps.Before we tell you more about the update, you might also be interested in our post "Faster Images and Videos Through Facebook Messenger App"

Add Nearby

The upgrade has also given a new two-factor authentication, which makes Snapchat a lot secure and harder for those willing to take over people’s accounts. There is an all new feature known as “Add Nearby” which allows you to add all those near you to become your friends on Snapchat. All you need to do is turn on the feature and look for users around you with the Add Nearby option enabled.


Snapcodes have also been upgraded by Snapchat. The users can now add their own selfies right in the center of their codes which makes it a lot easier for everyone to see if it is really you and not some fake ID.  The update is pretty awesome and by now most of the android users have got it. Those who haven’t got the update yet, they can go on Google Play Store , Open My apps, Tap on Snapchat and then tap Update.

Often times you can view the model number inside the device, by removing the battery
