Snapchat Explore Tool Brings More Moments to Maps
Snapchat today introduced a new feature called Snap Map Explore. The idea is to make it easier for people to see where friends are, such as landmarks, festivals, or parks, or see what else is going on nearby. People will be able to reach out to friends they see are traveling on the map. "With one tap, you can start a new conversation. You’ll also get updates for other moments you might want to see like breaking news, events, and trends," explained Snapchat. Use of the Snap Map is optional, and users must manually turn on location sharing so their friends can see them. Snapchat says the Explore tool will roll out to Snapchatters globally over the next few weeks.
