Snapchat just introduce a new feature that you never really knew you needed so desperately until now. You can now chat with a group of up to 16 friends all at once with Snapchat Groups.
Groups can be created by sending a Snap or when making a new chat. Having the ability to send your Snaps out without checking each person on your friends list is going to make things a lot smoother.
Then when you want to take things private with just one person from the group, it's as simple as tapping their name. As with normal Snaps, group snaps can only be replayed once by each recipient and are deleted after 24 hours.
With the addition of Snapchat Group, the social media app seems to be near perfection, and anything new to come in the future is just a bonus. Snapchat is going to be responsible for the death of countless smartphone batteries this holiday season.
