Knowing what your fellow Snapchatters are doing has become very easy, as now you can just search any term instead of relying on Snap’s curation team to hand-pick Stories for you.
Snapchat, the popular mobile messaging app, announced the new search tool, saying it was rolling out at first in few select cities as beta. It’s the first major search tool for the service boosting its ability to compete with the likes of YouTube.
“Over time, the number of Snaps that were created by our community and added to Our Story simply overwhelmed our curation team – and inspired us to create something new,” Snap said in the blog post.
The new update came days after Facebook released a near-identical clone of Snapchat’s Stories.
