Snapchat is introducing its Geostickers feature to its platform. Similar to filters, the Geostickers are based on locations. The stickers are essentially related to aspects of the area. For example in Paris, a sticker of a sloth hanging off the Eiffel Tower like King Kong saying "Bonjour" with hearts fluttering everywhere is accessible to any Snapchat users who is in the city. Like a regular Snapchat, users can add multiple stickers into a snap or message to make for a creative image or video.

The instant video and photo platform has made a lot of updates recently like the 'Memories' option and now the Geostickers. Adding a fun element allows users to have a more personal experience with the app, whether it's connected to their hometown or on a trip. It gives Snapchat lovers one more reason to choose the app over similar ones like Instagram or Periscope.
