If your friends are using the updated version of Snapchat and you did not get it yet, you might be missing some of the very cool features of the updated app. There are some recent updates released by Snapchat and the most popular feature is Snapchat lenses. 

So, if you want to update you app and use those features, you can follow the steps as given here. No matter you are an android user or an iPhone user, you will get the required help here. So, read on to know how to update snapchat.

Updating the Snapchat app on Android

1.      Update the Android First

Many users make this mistake. If you read the terms and conditions of updated Snapchat app, you will notice that there is a condition on your Android version to use the latest features. If the Android version is 4.4 or even lower than that, you cannot use Snapchat lenses. So, make sure you are aware of the Android version that you are using. And in case you need to update it, go for it.

2.      Go to Play Store

If you do not get the update itself, you will need to go to the Play Store. This is available on the app tray of your android device.

3.      Go to My Apps

If you are already aware of the Play Store, you would know where you would find the already installed apps. For users who are using it for the first time, you need to go to “My Apps” tab. As you scroll down, you will see the Snapchat app.

4.      Click on Update next to Snapchat

If an update for Snapchat is available, you will find the Snapchat in top section itself where updates are listed. Just click on the update button next to it.

After you update the app, you can use the lenses feature on the device.

Updating the Snapchat app on IPhone/IPad

1.      Check the IPhone Version

Just like there is a condition on the Android version, there is a condition on iPhone as well. If you are using iPhone 5 or any higher version only then you can use Snapchat lenses feature. So make sure you check your IPhone version before starting.

2.      Go to App Store

You will need to go to the Apple App store to update the app. You can find this on the home screen of your device.

3.      Go to Updates

You will see a separate tray of Updates. Go to that tray if you want to update Snapchat app. The app store itself will show you the available updates.

4.      Find Update for Snapchat

If you app needs an update, you would see it there in the Available Updates section. However, if you don’t find it there, then there might be no update available for you. Just click on Update and your app would be updated. Make sure you are connected to the internet.
