Snapchat is rolling out its new features which allow the users to delete the sent messages before they’re opened. This feature is now available to few users only but Snapchat will release it for all within few weeks.
To use this feature, users just have to press the sent message, photo or video that you want to delete. Then tap the delete option from the pop-up menu. This feature works on both individual or group recipient. It has an advantage as the end user/group will not know what the message was. But it also has a drawback, as they’ll get a notification about that deleted message.
This feature has both advantage and disadvantage but everything depends upon the situation. Snapchat only introduced this feature to ease them.
Snapchat also introduced the ads for its AR Snappable games. This will help the advertiser to easily buy the AR Add. The company is also working with different brands to create and sell branded Snappable games. Snappable are multiplayer games which can be played with other users. The first Sponsored Snappable will supposedly go live on Thursday. King and Bud Light are the first to tie up for the launch of Snappable AR Games.
