Snapchat will soon allow users to'unsend' embarrassing messages.

Snapchat says the tool, which will roll out to users globally in the next few weeks, works for both individual and group chats.

App redesign: Separates'Friends' and'Discover' pages to create a more personalised experience. Snap Store: Users can buy a t-shirt with a dog filter plastered on the front or a plushie of the firm's'augmented reality superstar,' also known as the dancing hot dog, among other items. Custom geofilters: Geofilters are a location-based tool that allows Snapchat users to share where they are, or what they're up to, by adding overlay text and images to a Snap.

Snapchat is all about visuals, but a new feature will extend its reach as a platform for communication. The wildly popular photo and video sharing service has added a group chat feature to allow for conversations with up to 16 people. The new feature, announced Tuesday morning by Snapchat, introduces a new way to communicate with people on the app beyond one-on-one chats. Groups can be quickly created either by choosing users to send a snap to or by starting a new chat and selecting the names of the people you want to put in the party. The group creator can name the conversation, making it easy to organize the purpose of the conversation.
Stop me if you've heard this one: Instagram is making itself a better app by taking some cues from Snapchat. The former photo-sharing app is launching a new version of Direct, its one-to-one and group messaging, with more features. Starting Tuesday, disappearing photos and videos will appear in the same text threads as other messages with friends. Prior to this update, Instagram's chat screen featured annoying bubbles at the top bar that hosted ephemeral messages from friends (the Snapchat copycat feature introduced in November 2016). It seems strange to not have combined the two earlier.
