As everyone who enjoys using Snapchat knows already, what makes this social media app special is the large number of unique features that it offers. The developers who are in charge of Snapchat are always coming up with innovative ideas such as the famous camera filters and stories.
These features are so fun to use that other social media apps such as Instagram and Facebook didn’t have any other option than to copy them.
With that being said, it should come as no surprise to find out that everyone gets excited when the developers are announcing that a new update is coming. In fact, a brand-new update that sports the 10.80.5.0 version number was released earlier this morning.
Snapchat 10.80.5.0 Update
Snapchat fans should make sure to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network throughout the day. The reason why we are saying that is because as previously noted, a brand-new update is coming their way and it is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels.
As it is the case with almost all Snapchat updates, this latest one comes with a bunch of new filters that users can use to make their selfies and videos funnier. To make things even better, the filters are not the only “goodies” that the update introduces.
The latest update for Snapchat also focuses on improving the overall user experience that the app has to offer. Therefore, the update introduces a handful of bug fixes that are tackling various issues. Snapchat is now going to run faster and the chances of dealing with random crashes are much smaller than usual.
