Custom Snapchat Stories Launched For Sharing Group Memories

Instagram's Explore tab already features search and discovery for finding new photos and videos on the service, and now the social network is introducing new location and hashtag stories.

The photo and video sharing app on Tuesday launched location and hashtag stories, allowing users to search for a location, such as Santa Monica, or a hashtag, such as #dimsum, and view a related collection of publicly shared videos that Instagram users have recorded over the last 24 hours.

Here's how it works - users can create a new Story, and give any friends the ability to see it and add new Snaps.

This feature also allows you to put a geofence around your Story, which means friends (and friends of friends, if you want to let them), in the same area can contribute - ideal for parties.

Snapchat now has a similar feature called "Our Story" which collects photos and videos linked by location or events.

Sony A6500You'll see a new story ring at the top of Explore filled with stories happening near you.

Users will now be able to search for Stories using their location or their hashtags but only on public accounts. These new sections will bring up photos and videos.

According to the company's most recent figures, the app now has 166 million daily active users.

There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
