Snapchat is up with lots of new features lately. Early this year they changed the layout of the app which was a different experience for the users. But they aren’t done experimenting yet. Now, Snapchat has introduced group video calling and voice calling in its latest update. Apart from that, they also rolled out the feature to mention friends in Snapchat story like on Instagram. So in this article, we will settle all your curiosities about the new tagging feature.
Tag/Mention Someone In Your Snapchat Story
Mentioning on Snapchat is just as easy as writing any other text on the image. You can follow these simple steps to tag your friends in your cool Snapchat stories:
- Open Snapchat. Please make sure that you are using the latest version of the app from Google Play Store or iTunes.
- Take a good picture or video, or choose anything from the memories by swiping up.
- Once you have the picture or video, tap on the ‘Text‘ icon on the top right.
- Now type a suitable caption or you can just mention your friends.
- To mention your friends you have to type ‘@‘ and then the initials of his/her Snapchat username. Their profile name and username will pop-up above the keyboard.
- Tap on your friend’s name and the username will appear in the text box. You can easily mention more than one friend by following the same process.
- It is possible to change the font styles and your friends will still be mentioned in all fonts whether it is a ‘Classic’, ‘Big Text’, ‘Rainbow‘, or ‘Glow’ etc. You can move the text anywhere in the picture.
- After you are done with editing the text, tap on the ‘send‘ icon at bottom right. Choose with whom you want to share the story and tap on the ‘send‘ button again.
- You have posted your Snapchat story with the latest feature successfully.
People who view your Snapchat story will be able to view whom you have tagged. And on the tap of the ‘MORE’ option (at the bottom of your story) people will get Add Friend option as shown in the picture below.
This new feature of Snapchat is to make you more socialize. People may use it to share with whom they are doing the activity and brands may use this feature for shout-outs and promotions.
