Edit Messages, Message Reactions, and More Coming Soon to Snapchat!

Are you fed up with autocorrect messing up spellings and your friends calling you out for your typos? Well, you can now put all of that to rest. The popular special platform – Snapchat is now rolling out the option to edit your messages. Yes, this is a feature that should have been added a long time ago. But, hey, it’s better late than never.  There are also new cool features coming to Snapchat as well.

Editing Your Messages on Snapchat

You can now get rid of errors and typos thanks to the Edit feature for Snapchat. There is however a catch. You can edit the message as long as it has been 5 minutes or less. Beyond 5 minutes, the mistake stays as a mistake. This time-limit edit feature is common on a lot of messaging platforms, such as WhatsApp and even Facebook Messenger.

While this feature will roll out soon, Snapchat+ users will be the first pens to get this feature. So, if you’re not a Snapchat+ member, you might have to wait for a bit longer.

React to a Message with Any Emoji

Message reactions are also another feature that has been on many other messaging platforms. While Snapchat did have the option to react to messages, you could only use Bitmoji to react to the message. From now on, you will not be able to use any emoji of your choice to react to a message on Snapchat. This feature will also slowly be rolling out to all users in the coming weeks.

Say Hello via Snap Maps

The Maps feature in Snapchat is a great way to see where your friends are. The location will be visible only if the user has agreed to share their location data. If not agreed, you cannot see your Snapchat friends’ locations. But now, if you have friends who share their location via the Snap Map, you can easily send a wave or a heart reaction to them right from the Maps screen.
