Snapchat is making sure its addicted teens have absolutely every tool in their arsenal to communicate with each other, as a new update released today finally makes good on longstanding rumors of improving the app’s chat functions.
The company outlined the details in a blog post:
Chat 1.0 was all about the joys of being here — when most apps told you when your friend was typing, Chat let you know that your friend was listening. Two years later, we’ve learned a ton about how people talk, but our goal remains unchanged. We want Chat to be the best way to communicate — second only to hanging out face-to-face.
