Snapchat rolls out more features including 1 to pay for replays


Snapchat users will find some interesting new features in updated version, which is being rolled out today.

The app team said in a blog post that US Snapchatters could now purchase extra Replays, starting at 3 for $0.99. You can use a Replay on any Snap you receive, but you can only Replay any Snap once. They’re a little pricey — but time is money! 😉

The other features include 1 that enhance selfies called Lenses & a new Trophies feature for virtual rewards.

With Lenses, users will be able to take a selfie, then choose one of several face filters to bring their snaps to life. The filters, or lenses, will pop up automatically when a user’s camera is in selfie mode and they press & hold down on their face on the screen. The lenses can distort your face so you look like you’re a lot older, for example, or they can add animations and sound.

Trophies are another new feature coming to the app — The Next Web spotted an early version of it in Snapchat’s August release. Trophies will grant users virtual awards and stickers based on how they use the app, like Foursquare’s Swarm app does with badges.

For example, if you send ten snaps with your front-facing flash on, you may unlock a sticker.
