In mid-April, Facebook said its Instagram Stories application, which competes directly with Snapchat Stories, broke the 200 million user mark among daily active users. And lastly you have the timer. It's likely that a Magic Eraser functionality could soon arrive for video Snaps as well, reports The Los Angeles Times.

The team behind the wildly popular Snapchat service has just announced a new update is now available to its users, which focuses on new features and improvements that are meant to further enhance usability. Images will still disappear after they've been viewed, but the Snap automatically close after a set number of seconds. Other new features include looping videos and an eraser. When you send a photo with infinite time, represented by the symbol for infinity and the words "no limit", whoever receives it won't have access to it forever.

During the process of placing objects, Snapchat says it is tracking the main surface of the photo - usually, this will be the ground.

Kohli injured his right shoulder while fielding against Australia during third Test match in Dharamsala. On the work front, Anushka Sharma will be seen in a romantic drama starring Shah Rukh Khan in the lead.

In that same vein, Snapchat also launched looping videos on Tuesday. However, the Snapchat looped videos have sound and can be longer than a Boomerang usually is. Yes, messages are still deleted under the new sharing options, but they aren't deleted as quickly; they offer users more opportunity to see them (or screenshot them) before they disappear for good. This particular Magic Eraser isn't the Mr. Clean product, but a healing tool for editing images in Snapchat.

Emoji Drawing - The new brush tool allows you to draw with emojis like stars, hearts and fire. If you record a video while making amusing faces for random people on the internet, you'll see the new Loop option is just a single tap on the circular arrow icon, bottom-most of those on the top right. If used extremely delicately it can completely remove buildings or people from your photo.

The creative toolkit now appears at the side of the screen for Snapchat users, with the launch aligning with Snap's wider ambitions to be a camera company. As competition from Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram rises, Snapchat has now decided to make a big change.
