A recent feature is a search option which will help the user search through his or her photos or videos that have been publically posted.

Snapchat posted photos and videos are known as “Snaps” which the user adds to Our Story feature present in the Snapchat app. This machine learning technology-based feature has a new search feature added to it to help scroll the posted videos and photos. Our Story feature is similar of the Snap’s earlier Stories feature which disappears after 24 Hours of posting.
The latest update not only helps users search through the wide-range of posted public collections but also helps search events such as local cricket or basketball games and topics such as puppies. This search feature is set to be rolled out on April 7, 2017, in some of the major cities. The Snaps such as Coachella music festival, Wimbledon games, and major events are available at present on Snapchat.
