Time steals, and memories wash. There are memory lanes we would want to travel back to on time but we couldn’t as such memory lanes are no longer tarred; riddled with potholes from forgetfulness. We simply can’t recall those special moments accurately as the spinning arms of the clock has spindled them off our memories.
Such is the big relief when I heard Snapchat is rolling out this new feature – this one is called Memories. that the company describes as a “personal collection of your favorite moments.” It is sort of a searchable archive which you can simply access by swiping up from the cameras screen of the Camera screen.
“You can use Memories to create new Stories from Snaps you’ve taken, or even combine different Stories into a longer narrative!” Snapchat says in a blog post. “It’s fun to celebrate an anniversary or birthday by finding a few old Snaps and stringing them together into a new Story :)”
Now when you intend to chip some elevated levels of privacy and keep some stories quite personal, you simply could move such to My Eyes Only. This way others will not be able to access, keeping off incidences of those awkward embarrassing moments. Don’t forget that Memories you create will be equally backed up by Snapchat.
The feature will be rolling out “over the next month or so.”
