Snapchat Rolls Out New Group Sharing Features – Ideal For Events & Concerts

on June 18, 2014 | Snapchat | Comments (0)

newsnapchatlogoSnapchat has rolled out a new feature called ‘Our Story’, where users in the same location can contribute snaps to big story. Users not at that location can then watch the story unfold from many different users perspective.

From the Snapchat blog, they go on to say:

Snapchat has always been about sharing your point of view. That’s why our application opens straight into the camera. It’s the fastest way to share little moments with our friends – to let them know where we are or how we feel right now.

When we introduced My Story we never could have imagined how powerful it would be to string those moments together into a narrative. We love watching the day unfold with our friends.

But My Story has always represented a singular, personal experience. We wanted to build something that offered a community perspective – lots of different points of view. After all, our friends often see the same things in totally different ways.

We built Our Story so that Snapchatters who are at the same event location can contribute Snaps to the same Story. If you can’t make it to an event, watching Our Story makes you feel like you’re right there! It’s really easy to use.

This clip above is the promo video Snapchat put together with DJ Tiesto showing off the new features and how it works. This clip was also sent to all users via a Snapchat video message.
