Snapchat made a huge announcement Tuesday that will change the way we use the app. Snaps no longer have a time limit, thanks to their new 'infinity' feature, which allows Snapchat friends to view your snaps for as long as they want.
So how does it work? When you send a Snap it won't disappear until your friend taps to close the Snap, whereas before Snaps could only appear for a maximum of 10 seconds. The company also announced a 'looping' feature so now when you send a video to a friend, it will play repeatedly until they close it. Stories will still remain for 24 hours until they're automatically deleted, so nothing to worry about there.
Snapchat is coming out with an "infinity" time setting for each snap & I'm honestly terrified for what is to come

Another cool feature is the 'magic eraser' which allows you to delete an item in a Snap – like some rubbish on the ground. You can do this by tapping the scissors tool and the stars icon and clicking on the item you want to remove.

Jesus lads, it seems like Snapchat is getting very complicated. Would you actually be arsed using all these features? We're pretty much happy out with the dog filter. Let us know in the comments below.
