All About Your Favourite App – Snapchat!

Snapchat is a smartphone application for both smartphones and iOS devices. Head of Snapchat is its co-founder – Evan Spiegel. The central concept of this application is any photo, video, or text message you send to the receiver will automatically become inaccessible after a short time. The main motive of this temporary nature of the phone app is to increase the natural flow of interaction between people to see other people’s Snapchat.

What’s the point of Snapchat?

In the beginning, Snapchat was just focused on sharing photos person-to-person. But, after some updates, now you can use Snapchat for a wide range of tasks such transferring short videos,  video calling, sending instant messages, creating caricature-such as Bitmoji avatars, and transferring various chronological “stories” and many more. This chronological story will be broadcasted to all your followers.  Moreover, there is also a specific “Discovery” area that present short-type content from big publishers around the world, such as Buzzfeed.

Moreover, Snapchat let you easily store media in a personal storage section. In short, this smartphone application is loaded with various enticing features such as incorporating filters and AR-based lenses to your snaps and also tells your friends about your live location. Here, the essential thing to realize about Snapchat is that it is focused on an instant form of communication through your smartphone. Before the advent of Snapchat, social media was just limited to desktops, and that was just focused on the collection of data. This application let you easily talk with friends, view snapchat photos online, and explore news in Discover. Life is more fun when you live in the moment!

For example, you can tweet, post your status, upload your images and videos, and you can keep it as a record of all your online things. Your friends can watch your post, image, video, etc. forever and can comment on them anytime. But, the arrival of Snapchat has changed the phenomenon of ‘forever’. It has revolutionized the way of communication. You can send your photographs with a rainbow-puking AR lens applied on the picture. When your friends open it, after some time, it will automatically disappear forever.

In case, your friends want to save your image they can capture a screenshot, and also send a response with their own picture and videos. You can also broadcast your image o short videos for your friends on your story.  Your followers can watch your story by just taping it. Snapchat has crossed millions of users because of its unique and exciting features.

After installing Snapchat, open it and you will observe a view similar to your device camera can display on your phone. In short, it will display a camera screen.

With the passage of time, how it looks may change, but in general, you will observe a camera button at the bottom of the screen. By tapping this button, you can access your Memories screen, Chat screen, and Stories screen. You may also observe various options at the top of the display screen when you get access other people’s Snapchat. These options will let you access your Profile screen, Search screen, and many more.
