This new Snapchat update will *totally* rock your summer!

*Now* is the time to download Snapchat's newest update, girl. The social platform announced ‘Group Stories’ this week and the new feature is pretty awesome.

This update allows you to create a custom story with friends—you choose who can add to it, who can view it and you even get to name it! Another sweet feature on the new update includes the 'geofence.' This cool tool takes your location and “fences” it so that friends of friends can add and view your story if they’re within a certain distance of you, and then disappears after 24 hours just like every other story. So neat, right?! 

Whether you’re taking a trip, throwing a party or just hanging out with friends, this adapted version of the app makes it just that much better! We think it's a fab way to document and celebrate any occasion. 

To create your personal story with friends, all you have to do is...

1. Start by clicking the "+" icon in the top right corner of your Stories page.
2. Name your custom story and either add friends *or* choose to geofence your story.
3. Simply snap a pic or video, filter it, draw on it and/or add stickers—get creative! 
4. Finally, choose how long you want your post to display on a scale from 1 second to infinity. And you're done! 

This video from Snapchat also shows you exactly how to use it.

A few interns took the new feature for a spin and titled their story GL interns. Take a look at our snaps in the slideshow below.
