Snapchat Update – Boost to Performance and Usability


Snapchat is a highly popular social media app that is renowned in the Android and iOS communities for providing users with access to a plethora of features that they can’t find anywhere else. This is thanks to the fact that the developers who are in charge of Snapchat have released numerous innovative features that are so fun to use that Snapchat’s competitors (Facebook and Instagram) didn’t have any option other than to copy the features with “Stories” being the best example of this.

While the fun features that Snapchat offers are amazing, this is not necessarily the best thing about the social media app. What truly makes Snapchat shine when compared to similar social media apps is the fact that Snapchat’s performances and software stability are being improved on a daily basis via software updates. In fact, a new update has just arrived.

With that said, today we are going to cover everything there is to know about Snapchat’s latest update which has been released earlier this morning. However, we are also going to present the best features that Snapchat has to offer. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.

Snapchat Update

The first thing that we want to note about Snapchat’s latest update is that it sports the version number. The update is scheduled to pop up in the notification panels of all Snapchat fans during the upcoming hours and we are advising everyone to download it as soon as possible.

The new update for Snapchat is categorized as a maintenance release. The reason behind this is that instead of introducing any new features, the update focuses providing a boost to the overall software stability of the social media app and also on removing annoying bugs that sometimes caused Snapchat to lag.
