Snapchat expands location-sharing with MyPlaces

Snapchat for iOS updated with new features 

The company has added a new functionality to its iOS app in a form of a new location-sharing feature called MyPlaces. An update has been rolled out to the Snapchat users on iOS, allowing them to explore and save favorite locations within the application. In the MyPlaces tray, users will see three tabs: popular, favorite and visited. Just swipe to the Snap Map and tap on ‘Places’.  

Visited tab collects information about the locations you’ve visited, while Favourites allows you to manually mark a place you love. Finally, the tab called Popular is for recommendations based on the current location – the app will give suggestions for hot places nearby. 

According to Snapchat, the MyPlaces feature will enable a new way to discover places. The update is available as a store download. Head to the AppStore to grab it now. Snapchat is currently used by more than 250 million users each month on all platforms globally.
