Snapchat Chat 2.0 Update & Feature Additions

As of March 29th 2016, Snapchat has rolled out a massive update for its second generation chat feature. Snapchat is altering the way you communicate with friends through what its calling Chat 2.0. Snapchat announced that they have added a set of new even more user-friendly features to make communication easier via the app. In addition, Snapchat stated the following in their blog, “What we love most about the new Chat is how easily you can transition between all these ways of communicating–just like you do in person. When that’s possible, you aren’t texting, calling, or video chatting–you’re just talking. We’ve been working on this redesign for a while.”

The new update allows users to jump straight from sending a message to starting off an audio chat. In case the user on the other end is not around, you can leave them a voice message instead, but that’s not all.

Here’s a quick run-down on each of the main additions:

Auto-Advance Stories

The new auto-advance feature allows you to watch all stories without having to click from one to another. The minute a story is played and finished Snapchat will automatically play the next one on your list. Snapchat also allows users to swipe left during the viewing of a story to jump right into another one.



Stickers are a part of almost each and every platform and they are made available now on Snapchat for you to enjoy a more expressive private chat with friends and family.


Video and Audio Calls 

Snapchat enables you to make calls within the chat interface by simply tapping on the phone icon for a voice call or the video icon for a video call.


Video and Audio Notes

Within the chat interface Snapchat now enables you to send quick 10 second thumbnail video and audio clips, sort of like an in-chat voice mail system. If you’d like to send a note all you have to do is press and hold the camera or phone icon.


Snapchat has also made possible for users to send multiple photos at a time in chat and mark them up with a Snapchat text, drawing and filter tools. You can now send camera roll photos to show your friends via video and audio calls.


Now with Snapchat’s update & feature additions we can see that the app has developed into one of the most entertaining communication platforms in the world. It’s time to enjoy all of these user friendly features that were made just for us.

Happy Snapping!
