Snapchat is about to make it easier to chat with 15 of your best friends. The messaging app rolled out an update last weekday introducing Groups, which will allow its users to send Snaps or start chats with a group of up to 16 people.
In group chats, users will see the names of the group’s members. Clicking on a name will initiate a one-on-one conversation outside the group, and quickly swiping back will return users to the group chat.
As with regular Snaps and chats, they will disappear after 24 hours. The Snapchat update also adds a Scissors option, where users can cut out part of a Snap to use as a picture. There’s also Paintbrush, which can turn a snap into art.
It has been a busy fall for Snapchat, which rolled out its first piece of hardware, Snapchat Spectacles. The glasses feature a camera to capture photos or video. Equally interesting is the rollout, consisting of a vending machine randomly appearing in places such as New York City and Oklahoma.
