Snapchat beta overview
Snapchat is a social media platform, mainly focused on the younger generations and popular for one of its feature called Lenses.
Snapchat Lenses are AR-powered and are fun to use with all of the included unique masks (bunny ears, dog ears, and nose, etc.), providing a real life like experience.
SnapMap is basically a map, where all your friends' location is being displayed. For more information, please, read our detailed feature review titled "Snapchat's SnapMap feature and everything you need to know about it".
Another first, introduced by Snap.Inc - the company behind, is the disappearing content. Any photo or video Snap can be set to vanish in 24 hours. Also, previously, messages were disappearing instantly, but fortunately, now "Snapchat chats can be kept for up to 24 hours".

If you are eager like us here at TestingCatalog.com and you want to try out for yourself all of the upcoming features and changes, we have got you covered. Go ahead and learn "How to become a Snapchat beta tester on Android?".
Snapchat is working on a big overhaul to the currently slow and weird UI of their application, and it is available for beta users in the form of a toggleable option in the settings. You can see for yourself how to enable it and what are the differences compared to the old UI by taking a look at our article covering "Snapchat adds a separate switch for alpha testing" and enable it by following the steps in our guide titled “How to enable Snapchat Alpha without root”. For your information, many companies prefer server-side testing, which in itself allows testing for specific devices and issues. The alpha we mentioned was previously only available if you had root access.
If you want to report bugs for Snapchat for Android, read our very informative guide about "How to report bugs for Snapchat beta". Also, you can get support from Snapchat’s official support website or on their Twitter account @snapchatsupport
