Snapchat users may be able to tag friends in their stories

The battle ensues. This time Snapchat is swiping a feature from Facebook's Instagram. Nur

Snapchat and Facebook battle over augmented reality patents

Not all users seem to have access to the feature just now, but if it proves popular (which it probably will) then it will likely appear for everyone eventually.

Unlike some other tagging features, typing an '@' sign will not prompt a dropdown menu of suggested usernames, so you'll need to remember how to spell someone's username correctly in order to tag them.

If you're viewing a tagged Story, you just swipe up for a "more" option.

Instagram and Facebook are no longer the only places you can tag your friends in embarrassing photos.

The company also confirmed that a person who is tagged will receive a notification of the same, provided he/she is in the beta test of this feature as well. For example "Stories", which originated on Snapchat, but grew like a wildfire once Instagram implemented it for itself.

As spotted by Matt Rappaport and reported by TechCrunch, Snapchat is now testing the ability for users to tag other users within Snaps by including their username in a text field.

Tapping on the username prompts a pop-up that will take them to that profile. Many users are turned off by the new update, but perhaps new features such as this one will be enough to get others back on their Snap game.

Users can add multiple GIFs to their Snap and add the animated stickers to videos by pressing and holding on the sticker to pin it to something in their Snap.
