Snapchat fights back by adding ‘Infinity Timer’ option and ‘Magic Eraser’

snapchat app update

The fight between Snapchat and Instagram continues as the company adds two new features to its image and video sharing app.

Snapchat has added three new features to its app, the first being an option the company is calling a ‘Magic Eraser’ and the second being changing Snap’s timer to last for infinity.

The first feature, Magic Eraser, allows anyone to remove virtually anything from within their snap. All you need to do is snap a pic, tap the scissors and select magic eraser. You’ll now be able to select an object to be removed from your snap.

The emoji doodle option allows lets users select any emoji and draw on their snap. Instead of a coloured line, you’ll see emojis wherever you draw.

The last feature included in this update is the ability to select infinity as a time option on your snaps. In the past, it was possible to allow friends to view snaps for 10 seconds, after which the app deletes the content. This update gives you the option to select infinity, allowing your friends to watch your snap video or view your snap photo for as long as they want. Of course after they close your snap the image or video is gone.

The update is rolling out to users today via an update in the Android or iOS app store.
