In a recent update, Snapchat has unveiled a significant enhancement to its platform, introducing what it calls the “Stories” feature.

The company explains that Snapchat Stories are designed to let users share their daily experiences in a dynamic and transient manner. By adding snaps to a Story, they accumulate to form a narrative that is constantly evolving.

Each Story progresses linearly, reflecting the natural flow of how one experiences real life events. As each day concludes, the Story resets, ready to capture the next day’s moments.
