Snapchat is amazing. It is one of the most popular social media apps of today. When you look at it on paper, the app sounds a lot like a regular instant messaging app. You send texts, images, and videos, and the person you are talking to receives them.
However, the little details make Snapchat unique. It revolutionized the world of social apps when it was launched. The concept of disappearing messages isn’t particularly new, but the overall experience made the app so famous. Snapchat has a unique feel. It notifies users when the person they are chatting with takes a screenshot of the chat. That can lead to some awkward conversations afterwards but let’s say that it’s a risk that some are willing to take.
Snapchat is an app like any other when it comes to the installation and updating process. The app receives occasional updates that either fixes problems or add new content to the service.
The app has just reached version 220.127.116.11 Beta. Unfortunately, the patch notes are mysterious as always, mentioning only “Bug fixes and improvements! 👻”
That can mean many things. The developers maybe chose to do that to prevent gossip regarding the app’s supposed problems.
We suggest that you install the newest update as soon as possible to be sure that you have access to the newest features and safety updates. The app should have updated itself automatically by now unless you have disabled that option from your smartphone’s settings menu.
If that is the case, you can manually update the app by opening the Google Play Store and navigating to its dedicated page.
