Snapchat update adding Tabs and Giphy stickers

Snapchat logo wall

Shortly after Snapchat finally rolled out its major redesign to all users, Snap is pushing another update with more changes and improvements.

A new Snapchat feature called Tabs is coming soon. This feature will be available in the Friends and Discover pages of Snapchat and let you sort through your friends with active Stories, Group Chats, and Discover subscriptions.

The reaction to Snapchat’s redesign seems to be largely negative so far. While it doesn’t look like Snap is going to completely scrap the new look completely, the company does appear to be trying to tweak its new look to improve usability.

Snapchat GIPHY GIF support

Also rolling out to Snapchat is support for animated stickers from Giphy. This means that you can add GIFs to your posts by tapping the sticker icon and finding the GIF you want to add. You can scale the GIF sticker and pin it to a spot in your video if you’d like.

These new features will roll out to iOS users “soon”, while Android users will get them “in the coming weeks.”
