Snapchat has introduced a new Birthdays Mini feature in India and other countries to allow users to easily keep track of all their friends’ birthdays. With the latest feature, users can also get personal greetings and birthday messages from their friends on the platform. The new feature in the photo and video sharing platform will show Snapchatters a list of upcoming and recent birthdays. It will also display birthdays organized by zodiac signs in a separate tab. Along with tracking friends’ birthdays, the user can even count down to their own birthday.
Snapchat users who choose to have their birthdays mentioned in their Snapchat profiles will have their birthdays listed in the Birthday Mini List. In addition, the company has confirmed that it will not display the user’s year of birth or age to others – only the user can see this information.
“Today we launched Birthdays Mini to make it fun and easy to remember and celebrate your Snapchat friends’ birthdays! You can enjoy personal greetings and birthday messages from your friends – all within Snapchat,” the company said in a statement.
The latest feature is available on the social media app for Android and iOS users starting today (September 9th). Snapchat says users around the world can use this feature and it can be found behind the rocket icon in Chat. It can also be accessed through the app’s search bar.
Snapchat recently brought the Scan feature to the app’s home screen to enhance augmented reality (AR) based experiences for its users. Using the home screen scanning feature, people can easily access AR-based filters and lenses to discover and understand their surroundings. The latest feature will be displayed in the front and center of the Snapchat app alongside the existing Snap Map, Chat, Stories and Spotlight icons. With this feature, Snap offers suggestions, including camera shortcuts and new shopping features, to users directly from the Snapchat app’s home screen.
