Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps of the moment. It has a simple concept that turned out as a massive hit – It gives us a way to share everyday moments while also making them look amazing.
Unlike other platforms that record and archive everything you do, Snapchat is based on disappearing messages (which, though they become “invisible,” are still stored somewhere in some cases).
Snapchat is a mixed bag. It has advantages and disadvantages that you most likely already heard of or even experienced.
Do Messages Disappear?
There’s a catch with Snapchat – Though messages and pictures disappear by themselves unless users save them, nobody stops you from taking a screenshot of an embarrassing (or emotional) text or image and keep it for later. However, the person you are talking to will be immediately notified that you took a screenshot, potentially resulting in an argument. However, people found ways around that.
Snapchat reached version 10.87.5.57 Beta. The official patch notes say that it brings “Bug fixes and improvements! 👻”
Still, it’s a beta version, so you should decide if it’s worth downloading or not.
The app’s latest version adds an extra layer of reliability by addressing minor issues experienced by various users.
To update the app, either have your device connected to the internet on a reliable network (like home Wi-Fi) and turn on auto-updates or manually update it.
We recommend that you keep auto-update on at all times, so you don’t have to go through the hassle of manually checking if your apps are up to date and potentially miss out on new features.
Ensure that you download updates for your apps from a safe source, like your phone’s built-in app market (Google Play or Apple App Store), to avoid contacting malware or viruses.
