Snapchat Stories testing out Instagram-style tagging feature

Share

In yet another move to outdo its competitors, particularly Instagram, image and video sharing platform, Snapchat, revealed that users can now tag their friends on the stories they post.

As of right now, there is no concrete date as to when this new feature will be rolled out on the app, as it is currently still in Beta testing for the time being.

It appears the feature was first spotted by Twitter user and actor Matt Rappaport, TechCrunch reported. The tag is not static though - tapping on it will open a menu where you'll be able to send a friend request or message to the tagged user.

Federal authorities said Morales had been targeted for allegedly being a part of a transnational drug-smuggling operation. She did not respond to an email and a receptionist at her school said she was not immediately available.

If you're viewing a tagged Story, you just swipe up for a "more" option.

Facebook was one of the first to allow users to tag other accounts in photos uploaded to the site.

Instagram added Snapchat-style Stories back in 2016, and now Snapchat has fired back with its own copycat manoeuvre.

Snapchat has been busy adding a slew of other features over the last few weeks. Test users say the feature is activated when you add text to a snap.

It comes after Snapchat completely overhauled the app's design last November, by separating the app between "social" and "media" in an effort to make the app more personalized and easy to use.
