Snapchat has released a set of new features, including one that has been highly requested, which is the ability to edit chats. You can now edit your Snapchat message that you send to someone within five minutes of sending it before they reply, and this will soon be rolled out to paid Snapchat+ subscribers. Now let’s get to the AI powered features. The first one is AI reminders. You can ask Snapchat AI to remind you or set a countdown for an event or a meeting or a get together that’s coming up and the app will be able to help you with that. Bitmojis are something that’s very popular within the platform. Now you can get the help of AI to design the outfit for your Bitmojis. The final feature is about 90s AI powered lens, which takes you back in time to the 90s. And Snapchat says more than 40 million snaps have been done by the users using these 90s AI lens.
