The primary function still remains to be the self-destructing messages
Over the past few months, Snapchat, the messaging app, has become increasingly popular particularly among the youngsters. The app has recently transformed a lot and this is not something which the users will be disappointed about. The primary function of the app is still the self-destructing messages but this iOS and Android app is receiving an updated version which will include instant messaging and live video chats. All you have to do is swipe to the right from the main camera screen showing off the list of friends and now you can choose to chat with them using these traditional methods.

Once you have backed out of the chat screen, the texts disappear automatically unless you tap on them intentionally to make sure that your app remembers them. When a friend is paying close attention to your chat, a throbbing blue icon will appear to alert you. This is something different as compared to the traditional ‘online’ status which appears on the other apps. When this blue icon pops up, you can press and hold this to open up a one-way video stream of your own self.
