Snapchat has updated its app today, finally making Stories searchable.
Before the update, all you could do to find Stories was make your wayÂ to the right-side panel to see if Snapchat curated something interesting in theÂ â€œOur Storiesâ€ tab. Now, you can search for Stories right from the home panel where you take your snaps.
Snapchat is claiming you can search over one million unique Stories with the new feature. To accomplish this, Snapchat is using advanced machine learning to find the Stories youâ€™ll search for.
Among the things you can search for include events, locations and even subjects. Snapchat already curates Stories for events like the Super Bowl and Fashion Week, but now you can search for other events that arenâ€™t as big. You can also specify searches for betterÂ results.
You can watch Snapchatâ€™s video detailing exactly how searching for Stories will work.
This is Snapchatâ€™s latest move to differentiate its platform since Facebook carbon copied its Stories format. The search feature is only available in certain regions, but should be available to everyone soon.
