Snapchat has recently announced thsy will be updating a new feature called Snap Map which will bring you notifications about what your friends are up to. The new feature will make Snapchat more close to a social network, as opposed to a person-to-person photo-sharing app.
As reported by The Verge now users will see feeds on their Snap Map, showing them what their friends have been up to and also the major stories trending across the map. Users will also have the option to keep up with their friends and community in a separate way apart from the stories.
Its been just a year that Snap Map has been introduced but it has became a major part of Snapchat’s community and now it is introducing the Map’s utility allowing users to keep up with their friends and others.
Lately Snapchat has been struggling to find it’s place as almost social app has same feature available to Snapchat or have approved their features alike. But with its Snap Map, the app might finally have something to call its own.
The new Snap Map update will be available globally in the next few weeks. If you don’t want to use this new feature you just have to enable Ghost Mode from the Map’s settings.
