Snap’s marquee feature is getting an upgrade.
Snapchat stories are like disappearing photo albums you can share with friends. But until today, there was no easy way to create these stories for a group event — like, for a glossy trip to the Grand Canyon.
That’s Snap’s pitch for the new feature, which it calls custom stories — a way for friends to create a collection of disappearing photos and videos during a trip, and share it with other friends who aren’t there. “You decide who can add to the Story and who can view it – you can also choose to Geofence the Story to a location,’ reads Snap’s announcement.
Unfortunately for you this feature is currently only available on Snapchat. You’ll have to wait six months for Instagram to copy it.
