Snapchat launches a feature called “Our Story”

Posted Jun 17, 2014

Snapchat has launched a new feature called “Our Story.” Snapchat said that the app has always been about sharing your point of view, which is why the application opens straight into the camera. Snapchat recently launched a feature called “My Story,” which is used for stringing moments together into a narrative.

“We built Our Story so that Snapchatters who are at the same event location can contribute Snaps to the same Story. If you can?t make it to an event, watching Our Story makes you feel like you?re right there! It?s really easy to use,” said Snapchat in a blog post. “We?re making Our Story available for the first time at Electric Daisy Carnival this weekend (and we?re providing free WiFi for Snapchat and Insomniac!).”

If you are at the Carnival, you can add a Snap to “Our EDC Story” that appears in your “Send to?” page. You will need to turn on location services to let Snapchat know that you are at the event.

“My Story” lets individuals broadcast to a collection of Snapchat experiences over 24 hours before they self-destruct. “Our Story” is more of a way for people at the same location to add videos, photos, and drawings to a publicly viewable content stream.
