Stories. Every user can quickly share moments and see what friends are up to – right at the top of the chat list.

When viewing a story, you can tap to share, reply or react. For a quick ❤️, just tap – or hold down for hundreds of emoji options.

You can create stories with photos or videos – either from your gallery, or recorded with the in-app camera.

When posting, you can select from 4 privacy settings: Everyone, My Contacts, Close Friends and Selected Contacts – all of which can be completely customized with exceptions and updated at any time.

Stories can last for 6 to 48 hours – or they can be posted to your profile, arranged in a scrollable grid, where users can see your highlights for as long as you want.
