This New Feature Looks Pretty Cool
Snapchat just introduced “Snap Maps”, and the new feature looks pretty cool. Here is the intro video:
According to Snap’s blog, they said “We’ve built a whole new way to explore the world! See what’s happening, find your friends, and get inspired to go on an adventure!”
Snap Maps let you share your current location with your friends. Your friends can then see what you’re doing in real time and, if they’re near you, join in on the fun.
Snap PR said that there will not be ads running in Stories seen through Snap Maps.
Refinery29 got early access to the feature. “In a lot of ways, we’re taking what a map is and turning it upside down,” Jack Brody, a product designer at Snap, told Refinery29. “This map isn’t about where am I, it’s about where are my friends and what are they up to? It’s not about figuring out how to get to your destination, but about discovering where you want to go.”
