What is Snapchat?

A social app that allows users to send and receive time-sensitive photos and videos known as “snaps,” which are hidden from the recipients once the time limit expires. (Note: Images and videos still remain on the Snapchat server). Users can add text and drawings to their snaps and control the list of recipients to which they send them.


Suppose a group of friends goes on a hiking trip. Along the way, they capture photos and short videos of the scenic views, funny moments, and spontaneous adventures using Snapchat. They enhance their Snaps with creative filters, stickers, and captions before sharing them with each other or adding them to their Stories.
