How Snapchat is innovating the way we communicate

Updated: Mar 23

Snapchat is one of the most popular messaging apps on the planet. With over 2 billion active users, it’s no wonder that there are so many ways to use Snapchat. From sharing photos and videos with your friends to sending funny messages and drawings, there’s a way to share anything with someone you care about.








However, not all Snapchat users are content with just using the app for communication. Some people use it as a form of art and creative expression. In this blog, we’ll explore how Snapchat is changing the way we communicate and how it can be beneficial for businesses and individuals alike.


How do you use Poll Stickers?


Poll stickers are one of the interactive additions to Snapchat that allow users to create emoji-focused polls. Poll stickers are available in the sticker folder in the app and can be shared with your friends. They are used to measure how people respond to a question, and can help you to measure your friend’s opinion more effectively.





There are a few ways you can use Poll Stickers. You can share them with your friends and family, or use them in your own Stories and Snaps.


You can also use Poll Stickers to answer questions in polls. For example, if you want to know how many people think a certain product is overpriced, you could create a poll that asks people how much they think the product is overpriced.


You could also use Poll Stickers in your own conversations to add extra excitement and interest. For example, if you’re having a conversation with a group of friends and you want to see who responds the best to a question, you could include a poll sticker in the conversation and see which friends respond the best!


You can even use Poll Stickers to create social media posts. For example, if you have a Facebook post about your favorite restaurant, and you want to include a poll sticker for your followers to vote on, you could do that!


The new features of Snapchat’s Poll Stickers are as follows:


-You can create an emoji-focused poll and share it with your friends

-You can see the responses point to the more light-hearted nature of the option, though it’ll no doubt also lead to some angst and concern as well due to misuse.

-The new poll stickers are now available in the sticker folder in the app.

Poll Stickers be beneficial for businesses and individuals alike


Poll stickers can be beneficial for businesses and individuals alike in a few ways. First, they can help you to gauge the responses of your audience more easily. Second, they can help you to personalize your in-app experience. Third, they can provide a fun way to measure the reaction of your friends to whatever question you choose.





Finally, they can help you to better communicate with your audience.

The best way to use Poll Stickers in your Snapchat experience is to use them as part of a question and answer session.


For example, let’s say you have a picture of you and a friend with the question, “Do you like your new outfit?” You could include a Poll sticker for that conversation and see how many people respond with a yes or no. This will give you valuable feedback on how people are reacting to the topic at hand.



Individual Chat Replies in Group Discussion


This new feature allows you to have a conversation with just one person, instead of having everyone in a group reply to everything. This is a fantastic way to communicate when there’s a lot of people vying for the same space. It can also be used to avoid distraction from the discussion. If you have a question that needs to be answered quickly, this is the perfect way to do it.






Reply Reactions in Snapchat


Snap is also introducing Reply Reactions, which let you reply to snaps with a special reaction. Reply reactions are a great way to show your friends that you took the snap seriously. They’re also perfect for when you want to get a quick response from someone but don’t have time to type out a response.





Reply reactions can be used in stories and Snaps as well, so there’s no limit to the ways in which you can use them. Although reply reactions seem like a minor addition at first, they can actually have a huge impact on the way people see your snaps.


With more people being able to respond directly to snaps, it becomes easier for everyone to understand what was said and why.



What’s new in the new video and audio calling interface


The new video and audio calling interface has been designed to make live conversations more fun. You'll now be able to add lenses in video calls, making it easier to add Lenses in your video call. Additionally, you'll be able to preview who's on a group call before you join.





The new video and audio calling interface is more fun, easier to use, and more flexible than ever before.


Here are a few tips on how to get started:


-First, open up the Snapchat app and sign in.

-Now, within the app, you’ll want to select your group chat.

-Once you’re in a group chat, you’ll want to hold down on a message and then tap ‘Reply’.

-Snap will now show you a list of all of the messages in the group chat.

-To reply to a message, just tap on it and then tap ‘Reply’.



Applying lenses in calls


With the new calling interface, it’s easier to add lenses in video calls.

This will allow you to see who's on a call and also preview who is going to speak before you join the call.


This is important for two reasons: first, it can help ensure that everyone in the call has a clear understanding of what's happening, and second, it can help ensure that the conversation is more enjoyable for all involved.



Previewing a group call


The new process makes it easier to add Lenses in video calls, a key engagement element for Snap’s video calling option, while you’ll also now be able to preview who’s on a group call before you join.


These are all relatively minor tweaks in the broader scheme, but each, again, adds an element of fun, which will help Snap boost engagement and interaction within its group chat and calling options.



Conclusion


Snapchat is constantly innovating and developing new features that can be beneficial for businesses and individuals alike. With so many new features to explore, it can be hard to know where to start.

However, it’s easy to get started with Poll Stickers by using them in your Snapchat experience to add a little bit of personality and excitement. By using lenses and the new video and audio calling interface, we can make calls that are more personal, interesting and engaging.

We can also preview calls to make sure we’re getting the right person and that the call is of high quality.


So whether you’re a business looking for an innovative way to communicate with customers or an individual looking for a more intimate way to communicate, Snapchat has you covered.
