Snapchat removes the time limit
Snapchat continues to take new steps to strengthen its grip on competition with Instagram. The company that publishes a new update removes the time limit for playing photos and videos directly sent to a person. Prior to this, users were assigned a time of 1 to 10 seconds for the display of the photos or videos they sent. However, with the update, users will be able to send photos or videos without time limit if they wish.
As long as the recipient does not close the message, the message can be played without stopping. However, once the posted message is closed, the content will still be deleted. Therefore, it can be said that Snapchat’s concept of “eternity” is somewhat different from the conventional one.
The innovations offered by the company are not limited to this. With the help of new emojis and augmented reality, the gap between real and fiction in photos and videos is getting smaller. Although Snapchat has already given the impression of new moves on the subject of increased reality, Facebook has played a role in announcing new camera features.
In Snapchat’s interface, some changes were made to accommodate the new features. Therefore, be prepared to encounter a different view on the screen after the update.
This change does not mean that the number of users between Snapchat’s Instagram Stories will close. According to recent figures, Instagram Stories is being used by 200 million people every day. Snapchat’s total number of users is 158 million. It is expected that Instagram’s total 700 million users will reach 1 billion.
