Snapchat is currently testing a new feature that they call Story Explorer, and it's the perfect way to explore your surroundings without ever removing your eyes from your phone screen. Now when you watch a Story in the city section, you can swipe up on your phone to see similar snaps. If you're watching a snap of a basketball game and want to see how things look from another angle, you can swipe up and see the view from a different seat via Snapchat. Pretty wild, right?
The feature will also help get your own snaps seen. If you snap a cool event in your city, you may not get picked as the top snap from that event, but you will likely be featured in the other angles from that event. Snapchat uses a complex algorithm to connect these stories, which includes things like time, location, and even the shape of objects in the photo. It's definitely an awesome new way to explore the world, but don't forget to actually go out there and make memories - not just watch someone else's via Snapchat.
