A recent Snapchat update will allow users to add a geo-filter on their posts. The disappearing photo sharing platform lets you add place-specific text and animations to your pictures now. For example, if you are at Disneyland you can add text to your Snapchat so people know for sure. Alternatively, if you are spending a day at the beach you can put in little sail boats.

This Snapchat update went live on Tuesday, but the company has been quietly playing around with the geo-filter feature for a while (according to Mashable). The first round of new filters, instead of Instagram-esque tints, include places like New York City, Los Angeles and even popular exercise chain SoulCycle. For this to work users need to enable location services.
