Snapchat update adds Voice Filters and a handful of other new features


Snapchat silently pushed another update to its Android and iOS apps. The update brings a couple of new features that should further enhance user's experience with Snapchat. This would be the second update for Snapchat released in just a week.

In case you missed it, the previous update launched in late June brought the so-called Geofilters, which would allow Snapchat users to create custom geofilters directly within the app.

The newest version of Snapchat introduces a new functionality: Voice Filters. The new feature is supposed to enable users to remix how they and their friends want to sound.

Also, there's a brand new feature called Backdrops, which can be added to Snaps. The new option is available through a new icon inside the Scissors tool. The feature comes in handy when you want a different background to appear in your photo, but you want to be able to draw over the picture.

And last but not least, the update introduces the option to add links to Snaps. You can now tap the Paperclip option to attach a website to any of your Snaps so that your friends can swipe up to view it.

All the new features announced today are available on both the Android and iOS platforms as long as you update to the latest version of Snapchat.
