Snapchat’s New Snap Map Lets You Share Your Location With Friends

Snapchat is expanding into the world of mapping. A new feature announced on Wednesday called Snap Maps will let the app’s 166 million users share their locations with each other, according to a company blog post. From a report: From the default camera view, you pinch with two fingers to zoom out and see the map. Friends who have opted into sharing their location through Snap Map (it’s off by default) will appear in Bitmoji form. You can share with select friends, all friends, or with no one if you pick “Ghost Mode.” Snapchat is very quick to note that your location is only updated when you open the app — so there shouldn’t be any background tracking to worry about.
