A great news for Snapchat users as the company has introduced the new “Timer and Grid” option. Snapchat never ceases to amaze and introduces new features that allow users to creatively share their moments.
As Snapchat is a little behind other Apps to provide such options to their users, now it attempt to catch up. The Snapchat app was testing a lot of new features such as a timer, the camera grid and the portrait photo as well from quite a while.
Portrait photos are in vogue and users wanted to have this feature in the app as soon as possible. A post of jane manchun wong(Jane Wong is a technology blogger as well as app researcher who discovers new features before they launch for users) on Twitter shows Snapchat redesigning the user interface of the camera to place this function on the right side.
Instagram introduced this feature last April with the “Focus Mode”, so Snapchat is clearly behind in its adoption in the app.
Snapchat could also introduce the “Batch capture” feature that allows you to group and publish multiple Stories in one go as predicted by Wong. It can be done after clicking on a photo, press the “+” button to add another photo to the cluster. This can be useful if you want to publish multiple photos in a story or group.
The timer and grid option is currently available for Apple users and it’s not clear when it will be available for android.
Before this, timer does not appear when you take a snap but users only had the opportunity to put the viewing time on any picture or video. Individual Snaps cannot be longer than 10 seconds but it has the option to put it to infinity.
The photo sharing platform also worked on another feature called “Charms” that helps define your friendship or relationship with someone else. Above all much expected by users, it also gave the ability to delete messages before the recipient has read them.
Snap, the company that owns Snapchat also worked on its own gaming platform. The new service have the code name of Project Cognac. It includes the arrival of new games (including third parties) to be used directly within the Snapchat application.
The developers are working really hard to give every feature one could need in any application. As with other features still in testing, there is no information on when these will make their way.
