Snapchat is one of the most popular social networks of all time.
When you think about it, the app is pretty unique, and that is one of the reasons why it became so popular.
Snapchat introduced an exciting concept many years ago when it was launched – Disappearing messages. Though the concept wasn’t particularly new, the app made it famous.
Snapchat gained track rapidly as the go-to messenger app where you could send questionable photos, have more or less embarrassing chats that you wouldn’t want another person to see for another time.
However, there is one detail that is known by few people – Snapchat messages never wholly disappear. Indeed, you can’t see them anymore, but they are all stored somewhere in a database. There is a lengthy process that you have to go through to get access to them, though.
The app recently reached version 188.8.131.52 Beta.
With each new version, Snapchat gets incrementally better. The developers typically never release public patch notes unless an update significantly impacts the app in a way that is noticeable by all users.
The latest patch notes are as mysterious as ever, only mentioning “Bug fixes and improvements! ðŸ‘»”
However, though they don’t specify anything in particular, that description likely is on point, as new updates always fix something that was problematic.
We suggest installing new updates whenever they are available. New updates are always welcome. If you keep avoiding updating the app for a while, Snapchat will refuse to work, eventually.
Additionally, some updates include safety enhancements which are much needed, especially for an app that has access to private conversations and photos.
