Impulse buying is a thing, and we’re all guilty of it from time to time. Sometimes, if you’re feeling a little down, it feels good to place an order for that little thing you’ve been meaning to buy, but never quite got around to picking up. Or maybe you see a deal for something you’ve been eyeing and figure, “Eh,…
Snapchat announced a new feature today that allows any user to delete any messages they send in individual or group conversations. In other words, if you Snapchat message your mom “nice bod,” but meant to send that to your favorite friend instead, you can now use Snapchat’s “Clear Chats” feature to prevent all the…
Earlier this year, Snapchat rolled out a drastic redesign meant to make the confusing social network a little easier for newcomers to understand. But the new layout flopped, and now Snapchat is admitting defeat with a second redesign that undoes almost all of those changes.
It’s easy to identify unknown numbers as the spam they probably are, but receiving a text message from what appears to be an actual person—one who isn’t in your phone contacts—can turn your lunch break into an episode of Sherlock.
Snapchat is rolling out two new features this week: group video chat and the ability to tag your friends in Stories. Here’s what you need to know to use them both once your device gets the app update.
It’s not quite #deleteFacebook, but there’s also a growing movement to wipe Snapchat from smartphones. The company’s poorly received redesign, combined with an offensive ad that recently appeared in the app, have pushed more people to abandon Snapchat entirely—including your favorite celebrities.
Snapchat is rolling out a brand-new update that makes it even easier for your friends to find you on its “Snap Map.” Even though you have to opt in for your Bitmoji to appear on the map, this is a great time to review your Snapchat privacy settings (and wave goodbye to the Snap Map, if you aren’t interested).
To the dismay of screenshot enthusiasts everywhere, Instagram is rolling out a new feature that alerts creators when someone decides to immortalize their temporary Instagram Stories using a screenshot. (A similar feature already exists to alert users to screenshots taken on Snapchat.) There are a few workarounds you…
Snapchat recently released a redesign that hasn’t exactly been a hit with its most loyal users. With most apps, if you opt for the upgrade you’re stuck with the new version until the developer puts out something new.
Snapchat is in the process of rolling out its biggest redesign ever, but on Tuesday the company announced another big update that could change the way people use its app. Starting today, you can share certain Stories (what Snapchat calls its disappearing videos and pictures) outside of Snapchat.
Near the end of 2017, something weird started to happen. Snapchat’s iPhone app kept logging me out of my account. The first few times, I promptly logged back in, but after the fourth or fifth time I didn’t bother. I was already getting bored with Snapchat, and I soon found that Instagram’s copycat Stories feature was…
WhatsApp announced on Wednesday that it’s adding live location sharing, making it easier to find your friends in real life with the Facebook-owned messaging app. It’s also great for sharing your commute so people know when you’ll arrive and that you’re safe.
Plastic surgeons can get a lot of business through social media, but some surgeons take the entertainment aspect to extremes: dancing on camera during surgery, for example, or cradling someone’s excised tissue like a baby. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons wants to crack down.
Even though Instagram has been ripping off features from Snapchat, the quirky social network with ephemeral content remains a unique place. One of its most distinctive features is geofilters—frames you can overlay on photos you take.
Letting your teenage children use social media can feel as though you’ve suddenly let them loose inside a scene from Trainspotting—there’s so much that could happen, and that’s scary, no question. The latest source of panic among parents is Snapchat’s new Snap Map, a map that lets users see where their friends are in…
One of the better features in Snapchat is the often goofy geofilters that pop up when you’re making a snap from a specific location. Today, Snapchat’s making it easy to make your own filters for special events. Provided you don’t mind shelling out a few bucks, that is.
Snapchat may not be as good at keeping your secrets as it wants you to think, but it’s getting better at being a messaging platform. Snapchat’s new Chat 2.0 brings a ton of new features that make it comparable to other chat apps.
iOS: Snapchat, the app that sends disposable messages, just got its first dumpster diver. SnapHack takes those once ephemeral photos and videos and removes the self-destruct timer so you can save them forever.
