Snapchat’s popular feature Snap Map has just got a very unique update, “My Places”. It’s a Google Maps like feature that not only helps you stay in touch with your friends but also allows you to do things you love together. Snapchat My Places feature will enable the user to explore nearby restaurants, coffee shops, parks, and other famous places. The company will associate the My Places feature on its Snap Map and once out, it will let you explore the much-needed hotspots for the popular places.
It will also suggest you some places based on your saved history and favorite places. It will have three tabs Popular, Favourite, and Visited.
“My Places” feature in Snapchat is a kind of a map where you can store places to visit and favorite the places you love. It will also suggest you some places based on your saved history and favorite places.
As clear from the name, the favorite Places will be having a heart icon on the pop-up description of the restaurant, coffee shop, or park. The popular tab will have the popular hotspots of the area you will be visiting then. Like Tokyo Olympics 2020 is a popular place. The visited tab will have the places which you have visited or tagged in Snapchat.
Putting in a nutshell, Snapchat “My Places” feature will help you stay in the social media App rather than peeking over to Google maps.
What To Expect from My Places and other new Snap Map feature
The implementation of “My Places” in Snap Map marks the beginning of several approaches to making SnapMap a more complete universal service that will keep the user to stay on Snapchat for a long time.
Snap Map announced another new feature in May that will help you book tickets for concerts and get reviews about restaurants on Snapchat.
