Snapchat are raising the bar yet again with their latest update and it’s going to make us approximately 65 per cent less productive each day.

Not content with introducing chat features, the brains behind the app are rocking our world with a GROUP chat function that can nearly guarantee your Whatsapp and/ or Facebook Messenger won’t be getting as much use anymore.

You can have up to 16 people in a chat at a time, and messages will delete after 24 hours, rather than as soon as you exit the app.

“Groups can be created while sending a Snap, or when you’re making a new Chat,” a spokesperson for the company announced in a blog. “When your friends are present in a Group Chat, we show their name at the bottom of the Chat.

“Simply tap their name to start a 1:1 Chat, and then easily return to the Group in one swipe!

“We call this Quick Chat, and it’s the fastest way to keep the conversation going with one friend without spamming the entire Group.”


The update also includes an integration with Shazam – something we didn’t know we needed, but we’re here for it – and editing pics you’ve chucked into Memories.

Which means touching up those Snaps you thought you looked AMAZING in last night but, in the cold light of day, realise could have done with a filter or five.

So hashtag blessed.
