What you need to know

  • The Snapchat Snap Map is getting some new features.
  • Two new layers, Memories and Explore, will make it easier to find your old content as well as explore that of others.

Popular photo and video sharing app Snapchat is improving the way its Snap Map feature works, adding two new layers to the mix. Those layers are designed to make it easier to both relive old memories and discover those shared by others.

The first of those layers, Memories, will help people see videos and photos that they took at specific places. Explore will be similar, except people will be able to see what other people have shared around the world.

Take a scroll down memory lane and revisit your favorite Snapchat Memories pegged to the places they happened, or go on a virtual expedition to sights and events captured through Snapchat cameras around the world with Explore. Whether you're in the mood to look back or just look around, Memories and Explore let you activate a personalized worldview that brings you closer to places you care about.

Snapchat is one of the best iPhone apps at what it does, despite heavy competition from the likes of Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok.
