You can now use Bitmoji on Snapchat

You can use a photo of yourself across the web, but if you want to have some fun and maintain a semblance of anonymity on the web, you can use a cartoony avatar instead. You could dig up your old Yahoo one, but chances are you've moved on. You're using a Bitmoji and creating comic strips about your friends.

Then you move your hilarity over into Snapchat. You're sending texts, dropping images, recording clips, and maybe even making the occasional reference to your comics. Now you can go a step further. Don't drop a link. Add your Bitmoji directly.

You can do that now.

Snapchat adds Memories: an easier way for you to find your best snaps and stories

But let's put my own thoughts about Snapchat aside and talk about the latest update to the app.

Rolling to Android and iOS is a new Memories feature that lets you easily access a history of your previous snaps and stories. It's accessible from a swipe up on the camera screen and can be searched with keywords to narrow down the results to the item you're looking for.

Snapchat 9.15 Lets You Buy Additional Replays, Apply Snazzy New Animated Lenses To Your Selfies, And More

Each instant messaging platform of sorts offers its own appeal. Snapchat's appears to be the ability to share moments of spontaneity that won't linger around for the rest of your life. Pictures and clips disappear after they're viewed. Unless, that is, you Replay them. This is a feature that has been around for a couple of years now, but users have been limited to one per day.

Snapchat 9.7 Lets You Easily Share Snaps From Discover And Zoom Into Videos

Snapchat 9.7 is here, and it packs two new features. They don't fundamentally change the app. In fact, if you blink you might miss them.
