Snapchat is introducing new features that will allow users to interact with the platform in new ways and enhance existing experiences. There are also several artificial intelligence (AI)-powered features, all of which are gradually being rolled out. Some of these features will only be available to paid Snapchat+ subscribers. The social media platform is adding features like editable chats, emoji reactions, my AI reminders, an AI-powered feature to generate custom outfits for their Bitmoji avatar, and more.

New features on Snapchat

The social media platform announced the new features in an editorial post. Making the announcement, the company said: “Every day, Snapchatters create more than 5 billion Snaps on average to communicate visually with their friends. Now we’re adding new features to help Snapchatters connect even faster, express themselves in new ways, and use My AI to stay organized amid busy lives and schedules.”

Editable Chats is a new addition that will allow users to edit their messages after sending them for up to five minutes. The feature works similar to WhatsApp’s message editing feature. This is currently only available to Snapchat+ users, but may be extended to all users later.

Currently, Snapchat users can only react to a message using Bitmoji. However, with the Emoji Reactions feature, they will be able to use any emoji to react to messages. Another interesting feature is My AI Reminders, which will allow users to set reminders by sending a quick message to My AI containing the event name, date, and time. Once sent, My AI will start a countdown in the app and share a notification when the timer reaches zero. Snap Map also gets a small upgrade. Users will be able to react to other users on the map with emojis.

Apart from these, two new AI features are also coming to Snapchat. The former is powered by the AI ​​outfit generator Bitmoji. Users can now type in a short description of the clothing they want and the AI ​​will generate a selection of similar clothes. These outfits can have unique patterns, colors, designs and more. The second feature was released a few days ago and was called AI Lens from the 90s. AI Lens is essentially an AI-powered filter with creative effects that are automatically applied once an image is clicked. This particular one has the 90s aesthetic going for it.
