San Francisco: Popular instant messaging platform Snapchat has rolled out new features including iOS 16 Lock Screen widgets for iPhone users.
The company said it is introducing new features to keep conversations with friends easy to find.
“Our new lock screen widgets, now available with iOS 16, keep conversations with your bestie saved right on your lock screen, so you can chat with one tap,” the company said in a blog post.
“With this new tool, you can save yourself scrolling when you want to start Snapping, putting visual conversations with the Snapchat camera at your fingertips,” it added.
Snap chat said the new chat shortcuts at the top of the chat tab make it easy to do things like unread snaps and chats from friends, see missed calls, and respond to stories.
“Our Shortcuts will also remind you when you owe a response and show you when birthdays are coming up so you never miss someone’s special day or have a friend read to you,” the company said.
Snapchat is also introducing new tools such as Question Stickers.
Last month, the platform introduced a dual camera feature for Snapchatters to capture multiple perspectives and themes at once.
The dual camera feature has four layouts, including vertical, horizontal, picture-in-picture and crop.
