Snapchat is welcoming the new year with a slew of new features on its platform. Android and iOS users of the app will be able to respond to individual messages in chats in the coming days.
So, if a group chat is getting out of hand, but you want to keep one aspect of the conversation going, Chat Replies will let you start a thread by holding your finger on a message and selecting the Reply option.
Bitmoji reactions will be available in chats soon. There are seven options to select from: thumbs up, thumbs down, a heart, a flame, and tears of joy. Hold down on a message once more to add a reaction. Telegram has also recently added iMessage-style reactions.
In addition, Snapchat users can poll their friends in snaps and stories. They can use an emoji to respond to your question, and you’ll be able to see how everyone voted. The option can be found in the sticker folder.
Snapchat claims to be improving the audio and video calling interface as well. Before you join a group call, you should be able to add lenses and see who else has joined.
