Snapchat — Babbling Bubble Review
Snapchat is a quirky and funny messenger, crammed with some amusing features. It is perfect for hanging out with your friends online, thanks to its rich collection of emojis, animojis stickers, geo-location, etc. And you can always boast of your adventures in the Snapchat Stories. Download Snapchat and share highlights from your everyday adventures.
Snapchat is famous for its unique feature: messages in the app vanish over time. Be it text, audio, some goofy picture or a video - you can set a timer from 1 to 10 seconds. And after it's read, the message will disappear like a ghost in the daylight. Our Snapchat review advises you: be careful about what you send to someone.
Other Snapchat features are classic:
- Instant messaging.
- Video convos.
- Geographical alerts. Thanks to them your friends will know where you're lounging at this very second. Tasting blueberry and ricotta pizza at the parlor? Sipping margaritas at a beach bar? Your avatar on the map will let your friends know, filling them with envy.
Besides, whatever gleeful experience you're having, it can be shared via Snapchat stories. These are the most memorable highlights from your adventures in the form of either photos or video snippets.
Snapchat stays loyal to its sense of cute nonsense. If you please, there's a repertoire of beauty tools: stickers, texts fonts and filters. And for those who want their cuteness to be an overkill, there's a Bitmoji feature. Use it to snap a picture with a virtual flower crown, kitty-cat ears or puppy paws to make every spectator say "Awwwh".
In the new update, there's also a Discover section, where you can find articles provided by Buzzfeed, New York Times and similar outlets. Be it a new Skyrim Sequel announcement or a Broadway premiere - the section will deliver the freshest news to you right away.
Snapchat rocks a pretty smooth and user-friendly interface. It has a juicy and bright color assortment, which you can tweak to your liking. But it seriously needs to do something with the random contacts that can get in your Snapchat and be displayed as "friends", even if you barely parlay with them. BFF category would solve the issue.
Snapchat does its job at keeping your friends informed of your fresh impressions pretty good. And it's "ephemeral" communication makes you wanna appreciate your friendship and real-life experience even more.
Cross-platform use 5/5
Snapchat is available for both iOS/Android users. Apple gizmos should have at least iOS 10. Meanwhile, the Android version requires Pie to run successfully. You can access the service via PC, after registering an account on snapchat.com.
The app is totally free. But it features such goodies as geofilters for extra-price, they start at $5.99. Their role is to make your Snaps exclusive, since geofilters are regularly available in certain areas.
The Bottom Line
When it comes to socializing and just having fun, Snapchat is a marvel to have. Sharing your adventures and stories, snapping cute and dorky pics, parlaying with your friends - the app has all of it. Plus disappearing messages that save you from storing tons of digital junk on your gadget.

Is there a minimum age in Snapchat?
You can’t use Snapchat if you’re under 13. The underage accounts will be deleted if they’re notified. Though, the app won’t ask you to specify your age, so maybe there are younger children using Snapchat.
How to take a Snap?
It’s easy, because Snapchat opens to the Camera, allowing you to capture what’s happening right now. You have to tap the Capture button to take a photo Snap, or tap and hold to shoot a video Snap.
How to find out who is in a Group Chat?
The user’s name will appear inside a bubble above your keyboard as soon as he/she joins it. Tap on a name bubble to chat with this person one-on-one. If you need to know, who has read the chat, then tap on it. To find out who was in a Group Chat before you joined it, tap and hold on the group name in the Chat screen to view all the members.
