The new Snapchat update brings with it several new features. This includes the addition of several new screens that the company hopes will make navigating its app easier. The following is how the new Snapchat works.

  • Friends Screen — Users can get here by swiping right from the main screen. It contains all the stories, messages and Snaps from friends.
  • Profile Screen — This screen allows users to manage their stories, profile and other settings. It can be accessed by tapping the icon on the top-left of the screen.
  • Send To Screen — Users can have up to eight best friends now and can use this screen to quickly send them Snaps and take part in stories.
  • Discover Screen — This screen covers all of the people that users follow and also shows content from publishers. Users can get to it by swiping left from main camera screen.
