Rising social media app Snapchat has in the past been hogging a lot of data, an issue we expressed the first we reviewed it. In an update being released today for iOS and Android, Snapchat includes an important new feature called Travel Mode. In this mode, the app will prevent snaps (Discover, Live Stories, and friends’ updates) from automatically downloading, saving you from hitting a data limits. This means, all snaps have to be tapped to load.
A few other new features come with today’s update, too. Snapchat’s allowing you to be even more creative with a feature it calls Sticker Picker: you can now slap an endless number emoji anywhere on your snaps — no longer are they restricted to being on a line of text. Today’s update will also let users export their customized Snapcodes as a video file.
You can share this code on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and any other places you want to let people know you’re on Snapchat. And lastly — for the hardcore snapchat uses, — tapping the eye icon next to the number of views on your snap will now bring up the list of viewers.
