4 changes you probably missed in Snapchat's latest update
Along with customizable geofilter templates, Snapchat released an update to its app on Tuesday.
There aren't any major new features to speak of in the update, but Snapchat users should take note of these four changes:
1. You can change the style of text to italic, bold, and underlined.
When you're adding text over a snap, highlight the text like you would in any other app and you'll see the new formatting options.
2. Captions can be "pinned" to parts of a video like stickers and emojis.
Tap and hold on an area of a video and the text will stick to it.
3. You can watch someone's story before you add them as a friend, but only if they have their account set to public.
When you search for an account to add, you can see their current story only if they have who can "view my story" set to "everyone" in their settings.
4. You used to have to press and hold on your face to active Snapchat's selfie lenses. Now they activate with just a quick tap.
