Snapchat Gets an Update with Snap Map Feature [Video]

Snapchat might be having tough time lately with Instagram and co copying all its feature lately, but the photo-sharing application hasn’t stopped innovating. The company has announced a new feature dubbed Snap Map. Just as the name suggests, it’s a map view where you will find your friends.

This is how the feature works: You pinch to “zoom out” into the new map view,  and there you’ll see the Actionmoji of all your friends who have enabled location sharing on their Snapchat app.

All your friends will be positioned neatly on the map, allowing you to know the exact location of your friends on the world map. And as expected, when you tap on any one of them, you will be taken to their respective latest story.

Following is a video depicting the new feature from Snapchat:

As far as the privacy is concerned, users are in full control as to whether the location is shared with friends or not in Ghost Mode.
