Much like Instagram Stories, Snapchat now has Question Stickers for you to get your friends’ opinions about things in case you are confused. Plus, Snapchat for Web, which was recently introduced is now available for all users.

Snapchat’s web version, which allows you to send Snaps, conduct audio/video calls, and more, was initially available just for Snapchat+ subscribers. This is a paid tier of the photo-sharing platform with added exclusive features.
