As indicated by the messaging platform in a release, it is a function that has been developed prioritizing the visual approach to create these surveys. In this way, instead of text, different emojis have been introduced to indicate the available options.

To create a survey on snaps or stories, you must go to the Stickers folder, available in the application for both Android and iOS. These are not anonymous, so creators will receive a nominal notification from everyone who participates and responds.

In addition to polls, Snapchat has included with its latest update a function to reply to individual messages in group chats. In them, the option ‘Reply to a chat’ has been enabled, through which a parallel conversation thread can be started.

To use this new feature, it is only necessary to keep your finger pressed on the message that has been sent by another contact in that group and respond individually to start the conversation once the thread has been enabled.

On the other hand, reactions have been introduced with ‘Bitmoji’, which allow users to respond to a message without the need to write, that is, only with an icon that represents their state of mind. You can choose from seven responses: a heart, a face crying with laughter, surprised, sad, excited, giving approval or thumbs down.

The latest in the Snapchat update introduces improvements to video and audio calls, and offers the option to add lenses or preview who has joined a group call before accessing it.
