Swipe right on a friend’s name in your Snapchat inbox to start chatting. When you leave the chat screen, messages viewed by both you and your friend will be cleared – but either of you can always tap or screenshot to save anything you’d like to keep (addresses, to-do lists, etc.)!
We let you know when a friend is here in your chat so that you can give each other your full attention. And if you’re both here, simply press and hold to share live video – and chat face-to-face!
Snapchat is designed around the concept of sharing brief moments with friends, with photos and videos disappearing after they have been viewed. The app is a free download from iTunes.
