Photo-messaging app Snapchat has launched a new feature, enabling users to share some of the Stories published using its platform to be shared on third-party services, including other popular social networks.
Anyone who receives the link but does not use Snapchat will then be able to see the story posted on the Story Player on Snapchat.com. Only users with the redesign will be able to use the Story sharing function.
The company also said a redesign of the app, first announced in November, will be rolled out to more users alongside the Story sharing update, and will be available to users on both iOS and Android. Snapchat's most premium Stories - its original shows and the Publisher Stories produced by media companies - will remain locked within Snapchat's app.
Finally, you can share Search Stories, which are stories based around terms you search for in the app - like "puppies" or "football".
Let's just hope the latest update can change the perspective of users per the redesigned app-Snapchat can't afford to slip further behind Instagram and Facebook.More news: Arsenal vs Chelsea: Fabregas, Morata ruled out of Carabao Cup semi-final

Snapchat has updated Stories-it's now easier to share your stories even with people who don't have or use the app.
The company has said that the new feature will only work on Public Stories, Our Stories or Official Stories and not to stories that users only share with their friends. An emoji will also appear next to their name, so you know they're the real deal.
Earlier this month, Snap said it would partner with Fox Sports to showcase stories with matchday highlights on the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament to be hosted in Russian Federation later this year.
People who have made a point of avoiding Snapchat can now be inundated with a whole range of snaps from top celebs and major events.
Snapchat chose to redesign its app in November, because some users found it hard to understand and use. Anyone can see what's happening on Snapchat, at least from publicly shared snaps.
