Snapchat Beta

Snapchat Beta

Snapchat is a social media platform, mainly focused around the younger generations and is known best for its Lens feature.


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.
