Snap Inc., owner of the popular social media app Snapchat is rolling out a holiday update to the app that will finally add a group chat function as well as a couple new creative tools to make your own stickers and paint on Snaps.
Join us after the break for the details.
The new group feature, appropriately named Groups, will allow you to communicate with up to 16 Snapchat friends in a single thread. As to be expected, both chats and snaps within Groups will expire and vanish after 24 hours and can only be replayed once by each group member. You’ll also be able to quickly dive in to a chat with a single person in the group by tapping their name on the bottom of the chat screen.
Also included in the update are two new Creative Tools called Scissors and Paintbrush. With Scissors, you can cut out a portion of a Snap to convert that into your very own sticker. Paintbrush works as it sounds and lets you draw things like a funny moustache, cat ears, or whatever you fancy right on the Snaps you uploaded to the Memories section.
You can grab Snapchat from the Google Play store link below and keep in mind the update may not be immediately available for all users.
