Snapchat's new update


Snapchat has recently announced that Snapchat users can now select an “infinity” icon to let friends view a photo snap for as long as they want.

"We've all felt the frustration of not being able to fully enjoy a Snap -- even after replaying it -- and we wanted to give you the option of allowing the recipient to enjoy your Snap as long as they'd like," the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.

According to CNN.com, after a user taps to close the snap, it will delete as usual. Previously, you could send photos that would disappear after one to ten seconds.

Snapchat also launched looping videos. You can tap the “looping” icon after taking a video snap to have it replay repeatedly until your friend closes it or advances to additional posts on your Snapchat Story.

Snapchat also added a new tool called the “magic eraser.” This allows the user to eraser something in a photo snap.
