Snapchat Discover Lets Users Share Content
The newest Snapchat update lets you share content with other users in a rather easier way. Snapchat announced its Discover feature back in January, but it was unclear back then how the new feature would enhance the social experience.
It is all in front of us now as according to the latest update, Snapchat users can now share the content that they find interesting with their friends. New feature will be hitting iOS and Android soon by Discover.
Reportedly, the new feature was being viewed less than it was at the time of launching. According to several reports, its per day viewership dropped from 1 million to 700,000. Some reports even say that it has further taken the dip and had a 50 percent decrease in views per day.
Snapchat has nearly 100 million users and looking at the above mentioned figure it is quite low. Snapchat needed a certain something to promote the Discover feature and letting people snap Discover stories might just be it. It will prop up the feature and add that umph to it.
This update was announced just a day after announcing that consumers would be able to now download their QR codes, the vector version to be precise, which will allow other users to instantly follow them by scanning the codes.
Users can add their own touch to the Discover photo or video snap by tapping or holding onto it. They can insert emoticons, draw images and even add text to it. The images shared will contain a small watermark at the end stating ‘Sent via Discover’. It will also allow users to zoom in and out while recording. It is pretty simple, swipe right you can zoom in and by swiping left you can zoom out.
