Snapchat Add Nearby - Snapchat Update

Snapchat in its July 2015 updates makes a pretty big change, it added new Feature called "Add Nearby" this feature is a quick way to add a group of friends when you’re all hanging out together. If everyone opens Add Nearby, a list of your friends will appear on the screen. Just tap to add.

Apart from this it also makes viewing snaps much easier instead of pressing and holding the screen to view a Snap or Story simply Tap or View. Thise means no more tired thumbs while watching a several hundred second Story.

Snapcodes also got a serious upgrade :) You can add a selfie to the center of your Snapcode, so that it’s easier for friends to recognize you when you add them on Snapchat. If you see a Snapcode in another app, just take a screenshot. You can add screenshotted Snapcodes through Add Friends.

To increase user security, Snapchat also rolled out two-factor authentication to improve Snapchat overall security. Once you enable it, bad guys will have a much harder time if they try to hack into your account.

How to Add Snapchat Add Nearby?

Add Nearby is perfect for when you meet a group of new friends and want to add them on Snapchat. Have everyone open Add Nearby at the same time to find each other. If no results appear after a minute, simply tap to search again.
