SnapChat has introduced a new search option to offer more control to users over their contents.
The new feature will let its users to search for photos and videos known as "Snaps" posted to the "Our Story" option on the app, by creating new "Stories" using machine learning technology, the company said in a blog post on Friday.
For instance, users can use the search feature to find "Snaps" related to events such as local basketball games and topics such as puppies.
The search feature, which was rolled out in some cities on Friday, is an addition to curated "Stories," where public "Snaps" about major events like Wimbledon or the Coachella music festival already appear.
First introduced by Snapchat, "Our Story" feature is a slideshow of user content that disappears after 24 hours.
Earlier this week, social media giant Facebook gave its users access to the new Facebook Camera feature in its app that lets them add effects to their photos and videos.
Facebook-owned Instagram and WhatsApp already got "Stories" update before Facebook rolled it out to its users.
After this update, the Facebook users could now share their content to a Snapchat clone called 'Facebook Stories' that appears above News Feed on mobile and works similar to Instagram's 24-hour slideshows.
