snapchat says: To start the new year, we have added several new features to Snapchat messaging that make chatting with your real friends more fun and expressive. ,
Let’s start with the chat answers. you can now Reply to Specific Messages on Snapchat , just like you can do on WhatsApp. To do this, you can long-press on the message and select the “Reply to Chat” option to reply or swipe left on the message to reply.
you can also Respond to Snapchat Chat Messages with Bitmoji Reactions , To do this, long press on a message to see a row of Bitmoji emoticons and select the one you prefer. It will work the same way you react to messages on Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and even Twitter. Except they have a unique identity on Snapchat and it’s not just emoji reactions (if you made your own Bitmoji).
In a single thread, you’ll now be able to choose from one of seven Bitmoji responses, providing a quick way to reply to messages, integrating the use of Bitmoji.
Separately, Snapchat offers emoji-powered poll stickers, which can be added to both Snaps and Stories to let your friends vote on their views on a particular question.
Like poll stickers on Instagram, it allows you to add different types of poll stickers to Snap Stories to get people’s opinions. This feature will work for both iOS and Android users. If you post a poll, you’ll be able to see who voted for whom.
On Snapchat, a user can ask a friend a question. Entrants can then select the music note emoji or the cell phone emoji to cast their vote.
According to Snapchat:
“Our visual polls work on iOS and Android, so all your friends can weigh in and have their say. Plus, our polls were designed with transparency in mind: you can see how your friends are doing. voted to ensure that responses remain thoughtful and kind. »
A new feature in group chats
Snapchat is also adding a new option to reply to individual messages in ongoing group chats, allowing you to specifically address any comments with a separate thread.
The feature will be familiar to anyone who participates in group chats on Messenger, given that Meta added the same feature in 2019. Providing more context to everyone in a group chat, the option will make it easier to make sure your messages are understood.
Better voice and video calls
Finally, the ephemeral messaging app has Better voice and video calls To make conversation more fun with an improved interface and the ability to easily add lenses. This will also allow you to see people who joined the call before you.
These are all relatively minor changes, but everyone is doing their bit so that Snap can foster engagement and conversation through its chat and group call options. Each of the new features is now available in the latest version of the app.
