Snapchat Beta Update – New Filters and Software Improvements


Despite Facebook’s best efforts to purchase the entire social media market, there is one app that doesn’t want to sell. We are talking about Snapchat. This app was unique right from the get-go and it stood out by providing users with access to innovative features such as using AR (augmented reality) lenses that made their pictures and videos funnier.

The features offered by Snapchat are so innovative and popular that other social media apps didn’t have any other option than to copy them. Just take for example Instagram’s Stories feature which was first seen on Snapchat.

Nonetheless, the reason why Snapchat is making headlines on our website today is because it has just received a new update.

Snapchat Beta Update

One of the best things that Snapchat fans can do is enroll in the beta program. The developers who are in charge of Snapchat are always rolling out new updates that introduce fresh content and beta users are the first ones to access them.

In fact, the latest update for Snapchat which sports the beta version number is now available to download by beta users.

If you are enrolled in the beta program, then the only thing that you need to do is to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network and wait for it to pop up in the notifications panel.

To make things even better, Snapchat’s developers are allowing everyone who uses Android-powered smartphones to join the beta program.

What’s New?

Since Snapchat is famous for its filters, then it should come as no surprise that the latest beta update comes with a bunch of new and exciting features. However, this is not the only thing that the update introduces. The update also introduces a handful of software tweaks and bug fixes that are taking the app’s performances to the next level.
