Snap Map feature will roll out to all users via an update to the mobile app on Android and iOS.

Earlier this year, the popular image messaging app rolled out New World lenses in line with the company’s augmented reality (AR) drive.

While Snapping with the rear-facing camera, simply tap the camera screen to find new Lenses that can paint the world around you with new 3D experiences.

Tapping the camera screen while using the rear-facing camera will bring up new 3D lenses wherein users can create a cloud, a rainbow, flowers and a floating "OMG" among others.

In April, Snapchat also introduced a "Search" option to let users search through the content they posted on its app.

The new feature will enable users to search for photos and videos known as "Snaps" posted to the "Our Story" option on the app, by creating new "Stories" using machine learning technology.

For example, users can use the search feature to find "Snaps" related to events such as local basketball games and topics such as puppies.
