6 things you need to know about Snapchat’s cool new update

If Snapchat’s self-destructing message policy frustrates you, there’s a way around it – providing you live in the U.S. and are willing to hand over hard-earned cash. Using the feature is quite easy – when on selfie mode, pressing and holding on the user’s face will activate Lenses. Now Snapchat will allow United States users to purchase three replays for 99c, to enable even more creeping.


By their own admission, it is pricey but Snapchat needs to monetise their platform without endangering the popularity of the service and as a service which grew on the sending of the odd nudie pic without the fear of it being kept, this may be not such a great option, but still they have to try options.

In an effort to make users more involved with the app, Snapchat has also added a fun Trophy Case feature.

“We’ve provided one Replay per Snapchatter per day, sometimes frustrating the millions of Snapchatters who receive many daily Snaps deserving of a Replay”.

Here’s another question for Snapchat: now that you’ve done away with the ruse that snaps are “fleeting” messages, isn’t it time to change the ghost on your logo to something a little more permanent? However, they’re not switched on by default so here’s how to switch on filters in Snapchat.

The picture messaging service might finally have found a way to monetise itself, introducing additional replays for a fee. Individual snaps, though, can only be replayed once.

You’re probably using Snapchat to send selfies to other users but if you’re in the dark then it’s your rear camera which has a flash.

This turns your screen white to provide some extra light for your photo when you take it. You can turn the front flash on and off in the top-left of the screen.


Us looking at all of you, TBH. There’s a maximum of seven – we’re not sure why.
