Snapchat Introduces Another New Feature for Instagram to Copy

Snapchat's new feature isn't a killer one, but it will certainly give its existing users another reason to keep using it.

If you're unfamiliar with Snap's platform, Stories are user-generated photo and video posts that disappear after 24 hours.

Now Snapchat users will be able to create a custom story and invite friends to contribute to the collection, the firm said.

How you can tell if your photo or video was added to a location or hashtag Story. Snapchat users can then invite other users by username to add content. To see the story for your location, open Instagram and select the "Explore" page.

Creating a custom Story is easy: tap the new "Create Story" icon in the top-right corner of the Stories screen.

Snapchat just announced a new feature, and it tapped three of the most lovely women in the world to spread the word. Snap has introduced custom Stories, which are created to help friends and family groups collectively snap even the most mundane of events on the fly. You'll have to wait six months or so for Instagram to copy it. Get ready to see some family vacation snap stories, some bachelorette party nonsense, and a whole ton of award show or sports game watching parties with people who are itching to show off all of their custom made photo booths.

According to the company's most recent figures, the app now has 166 million daily active users.

Many people have flocked to Twitter to share their feelings about Facebook Stories and numerous posts said the service falls short. This will allow you to use the location and hashtag sticker but your story will not appear on the Explore.

The feature is Snapchat's latest attempt to stay ahead of its copycatter Facebook, which recently added one of Snapchat's most popular features to Instagram - augmented reality face filters.
