Snapchat Memories ! Snapchat has updated the app with a new feature called Memories, this feature basically lets you save snaps which you really really loved, and that too forever!
Snapchat has introduced Memories, a searchable archive of images and videos of your past posts, the one thing which it wasn’t supposed to do as an app.
The images will be kept in a camera roll-style screen found just below the Camera screen, allowing you to quickly and easily find what you are looking for. In an effort to keep things from unwanted eyes, Snapchat will also have a “My Eyes Only” section which will let you avoid awkward moments and keep those personal photos personal.
From Snapchats announcement
You can use Memories to create new Stories from Snaps you’ve taken, or even combine different Stories into a longer narrative! It’s fun to celebrate an anniversary or birthday by finding a few old Snaps and stringing them together into a new Story 🙂
We’ve also created a new way to send Snaps from Memories to your friends, or even post them to your Story. If you post a Snap you took more than a day ago to your Story, it will appear with a frame around it so that everyone knows it’s from the past.
The new feature will be rolling out selectively over the course of the next month or so, don’t worry if you get the feature a little bit late. This is a huge change to the service and the company wants to keep a close eye on it to make sure everything is running smoothly.
This is really a contradiction on the part of Snapchat, as this app was originally built on the theory that everything should disappear. We really don’t know what is going on, maybe another way to monetize the app? Let us know what do you guys think.
