Snapchat launches a slew of new creative tools including Magic Eraser

Snaps no longer have a time limit. With Facebook rapidly rolling out more Snapchat like features across its various platforms, investors should keep a close eye on DAU growth and Snap Inc. management's commentary as to what steps they intend to take to counter this very "real" and immediate threat.

Snapchat made its name as a self-destructing messaging app, before rebranding as camera company Snap a year ago.

Previously, Snapchat only allowed photos to stay between one to 10 seconds.

Google to launch Android 'O' Beta soon
The research company released a report at the end of last month that detailed their findings for the first quarter of 2017. The sheer dominance of Google's Android operating system in the mobile market also comes with a flipside.

No need over-emphasising the rivalry between Snapchat and Instagram, and this time, Snapchat has gone ahead of the lane to add a new set of creative tools, to outsmart Facebook's army of clones, most especially Instagram. That said, Facebook's average revenue per user easily eclipses this number with $19.81, and Snap, unlike Facebook, is not yet profitable. Given that Snapchat rose to prominence as an ephemeral messaging app that lets users share photos for no longer than 10 seconds, this is a notable departure for the company. There's also a new loop tool for videos so you can decide if a Snap plays once or loops until the viewer taps to the next Snap.

Steven Kydd, a founder of Tastemade, a digital food and lifestyle publication, said his company gets more than 1 billion views a month on Discover and people do not just skip over the videos and stories - more than 28 percent of viewers in the U.S. visit Tastemade's Discover channel at least five days a week, he said, and his daily audience has grown more than 4.5 times as large over the past year.

You can also use the timer to set options on videos now either to "play once" or "loop". The Company's flagship product, Snapchat, is a camera application that helps people to communicate through short videos and images known as a Snap.

Looping Videos- The loop icon available on the right hand side of the Snap composer allows you to make your videos loop again and again, which is particularly great for small videos designed for highlighting a particular stuff. -- What's New In This Version: * Now you can draw with emojis!

The new tools will appear today on iOS and Android.

Recently, Snapchat launched new 3D lenses and made stories searchable.

But he has not hit those heights since and on Friday he was lbw for four, failing to pick Rashid's googly. Rashid outwitted the Ireland batsman with his array of googlies, sliders and orthodox leg breaks.

The single biggest metric to focus on will be the growth in the daily active user (DAU) base of Snapchat, the photo sharing platform operated by Snap Inc.
