So according to the app’s official announcement, they declared Snap Map as “a whole new way to explore the world,” allowing users to “see what’s happening, find your friends, and get inspired to go on an adventure!”

So, what does this amazing feature enables you to do? The feature permits the users to see where their friends are posting from in real time, so people can be up-to-date on where popular events are taking place.

It also acts as a friend locator! But even users who practically live on the app are still getting to know the ins and outs of the new update and many have questions about what exactly the stars are on Snap Map.

A quick overview of the Snap Map app

With its update over the summer, Snapchat added a number of new features to the app. The biggest is the new Snap Map feature, which shows you where Snapchat users are posting the most snaps to “Our Story.”

Our Story is a feature on Snapchat that allows everyone in a certain location to post their snaps to a public story channel.

When many users are posting from a certain location, the map appears red, acting like a heat map when there’s a lot of activity. Snapchat also features updates from Our Story, like breaking news and events, in Map Explore.

The map acts like a “friend locator” for the users who use their own Bitmoji in Snapchat. On posting to Our Stories, it shows your exact location that you are posting from, so your friends will know what you are up to.

Once you see a friend’s Bitmoji, simply tap on it to see their story or start a chat with them. You can also use the search bar which lists every friend currently sharing their location with you, along with both their local and featured public stories.

Actionmoji is a next level update to the bitmoji in the Snapchat. This presents you Bitmoji doing some certain activity or action according to the time and occasion.

For instance, if you are in a yoga class, your Actionmoji will show up standing on one leg in a tree pose. If you have opened the app early in the morning, your Actionmoji will appear with a cup of coffee in their hand. And if it is your birthday, your Actionmoji will be holding a balloon.
