Do you ever find yourself laying in bed thinking of what’s going on around you? You’ve more than likely already found yourself scrolling through your Stories feature on Snapchat, but it’s now gone up a step.
Snapchat announced on Friday that its newest update would expand its search features by incorporating stories within it. Now, users can type in key words to pull up curated stories from around their area or around the world.
Snapchat said: “In addition to our professionally curated Stories, you can watch a local basketball game, check out the scene at your favorite bar, view your favorite Fashion Week shows, get inspired by a faraway place, or simply tap through a Story full of puppies — there’s a Story for everything!”
Instead of waiting for a daily curated story topic, you’ll now be able to just search for whatever you’re interested in at the time and have instant access from someone else’s point of view. For all of the homebodies out there (like myself), you won’t have to leave the confines of your bedroom just to see what’s going on downtown, or you can also watch all of the snapchats from a concert you couldn’t make it to.
Snap Inc. continues to show that they’re staying ahead of the curb in the social media world. What’s your favorite Story series to watch? Let us know who else might be your favorite person to follow on Snapchat!
