Snapchat Rolls Out Custom Stories

Snapchat has rolled out a new feature called the “Custom Stories” that gives users the option to create customised Stories and share with friends.

The new feature, rolled out on Tuesday for both its Android and iOS users, also let users choose who can view the Stories.

The Custom Stories will be perfect for a trip, a birthday party, graduation and weddings.


To create a story, users can tap the “Create Story” icon in the upper right-hand corner of the Stories page. The story can be named and friends can be invited to participate from anywhere around the world. Nearby friends can be added easily as Snapchat creates a 1 block geofence around the user’s current location. If a story hasn’t been updated within a 24-hour period, it disappears in typical Snap fashion.

The interesting thing about this new feature is that users can invite their friends to share. Users will however not be able to create more than three custom Stories at a time.
