Snapchat is changing the way its Stories work again

Snapchat Stories

A rolling 24-hour highlights reel of your friends’ comings and goings – is one of the app’s most compelling features (probably why Instagram and Twitter have both had a go at copying it).

Now Snapchat is changing the way the Stories screen works: the stories themselves will no longer auto-advance and you’ll be able to build up customized playlists to get a closer look at those friends you really care about.

Sponsored Discover stories are going to appear below updates from your friends, so there’s less chance of you accidentally tapping on an ad when you really just want to find out what your pals are up to.
