Snapchat now allows users to share news stories

As of Tuesday, Snapchat users are able to trade clips with their friends, using the app’s updated Discover feature.

To share music, news articles or video clips, simply tap and hold the desired Discover content, TechCrunch reports.

Discover was added to the popular photo-sharing app in January, as a way to enable users to access media such as CNN, Vice and Warner Music.

Snapchat also announced yesterday a new feature called Snapcodes that enables users to add friends more easily.

To add a friend from now on, point your camera at a vector file of a Snapcode, an individualized QR code for a fellow user, and tap on your screen. The vectors can be used on websites or printed.
