Snapchat Now Lets You Make Playlists Of Your Own Stories To Avoid Bulky Lists
Snapchat has become part of our lives much like Facebook and WhatsApp. While the company previously refused to sell itself to Facebook, it's introducing some changes that will enhance the user experience. The company is rolling out some changes today relating to the Snapchat story playlist that brings updates from your friends back to the top.
Snapchat Story Playlist Makes It Easier For You To Keep Track Of Your Friends
Some of us use Snapchat on regular bases and searching for stories from your friends takes a lot of time. The latest update from Snapchat will help reduce bulk from the Stories list and provide a much more streamlined experience. Let's see some of the changes that the company is releasing today.
Firstly, the company is removing the automatic back to back Stories playback. What does this means? You will no longer have to watch endless streams of your friends' videos, switching from one friend to the next. As a replacement to this removed functionality, Snapchat wants your friends to be the first ones in the list. This means that you will now be able to create your own Snapchat Story playlist.
Even though this feature is nothing fancy, it is a much needed feature that should have been present from day one. Nonetheless, we're still glad that it's here. You will finally be able to arrange your friends' videos in order that suits your preference. You will not have to select them individually and view each friend's Story separately.
All you have to do is tap on the story thumbnail located next to your friends' name. Select friends and add them to a list and then hit the play button situated at the bottom of the screen. This way, you will watch videos of your friends that you like, not those that you don't want.
However, there's a single drawback with the updated feature. Unfortunately, you have no option to make a persistent playlist that you could generally use every day. You have to create a new playlist everytime you wish to watch videos from your friends. Moreover, you will also get ads between some videos of your friends in your created playlist. There are other ad-related plans as well that Snapchat is looking forward to. Do stay tuned with us for more details on the subject.
This is it for now, folks. What are your thoughts on the Snapchat story playlist feature? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
