Speech recognition triggers fun AR stickers in Panda's video app

  Speech recognition triggers fun AR stickers in Panda's video app Panda has built the next silly social feature Snapchat and Instagram will want to steal. Panda is surprising and delightful. It's also a bit janky, created by a five person team with under $1 million in funding. Building a video chat app user base from scratch amidst all the competition will be a struggle. But even if Panda isn't the app to popularize the idea, it's invented a smart way to enhance visual communication that blends into our natural behavior.

Snapchat warns that after this the recipient will be alerted in the conversation that a message was deleted . Message deleting will roll out to Snapchat users across the world over the next few weeks.

Users will now be able to delete sent messages in individual and group texts, regardless of whether they ' ve been viewed or saved. This allows you to fix a typo or just retract a message that you sent inadvertently.

Today, Snap announced that it is introducing a new feature called Clear Chats. Users will now be able to delete sent messages in individual and group texts, regardless of whether they've been viewed or saved. This allows you to fix a typo or just retract a message that you sent inadvertently.

In order to delete a message, go to the message or conversation where the item in question was sent. Long press on the message or media (sticker, audio or video, etc.) and tap "Delete." The message will be gone, and friends in the individual or group conversation will be alerted that a message was deleted.

If no one has viewed the message, then you're set. However, this feature will, of course, not be able to delete screen shots, so it's always a good idea to take care with what you send to people. Still, this is a nice feature that gives you a little more control over your Snaps. It will roll out around the world over the next few weeks.

Snap Maps update makes your Bitmoji’s world look a bit snazzier .
One year after launching Snap Maps, Snap is giving its geolocation feature a lot more visual flair with two updates coming soon. The first big update, World Effects, adds snazzy animations and color schemes to the maps. It will send you and your friends a blast of confetti on your birthdays, and themed maps will also be rolled out for particular holidays and “cultural events.”Maps that are opened around Valentine’s Day will turn landmasses pink and fluffy, for example, while doing the same thing around Halloween will reveal a more ghoulish color scheme — with other holiday themes on the way.
