Snapchat has come out and released a brand new feature called the Snap Map, which lets allows you to share your location with your friends, and view their location on a map.

Snapchat released the update with a statement on their blog:

"We’ve built a whole new way to explore the world! See what’s happening, find your friends, and get inspired to go on an adventure!

"It’s easy to get started — just pinch to zoom out and view the Map! You decide if you want to share your location with friends, or simply keep it to yourself with Ghost Mode.

"If your friends are sharing their location with you, their Actionmoji will appear on the Map. Actionmojis only update when you open Snapchat."

To use the Snap Map just access the camera, pinch the screen, or zoom out and you can view the map and see where all your mates are.

Don't worry you can choose who sees you and who doesn't in the settings, and if you’ve been off the app for a couple of hours, you'll automatically be turned on ‘Ghost mode’.

Some people are for the app saying it's a cool way to see what your friends are up to, but the majority of people are a little suspect of the apps feature, sighting the dangers of predators knowing where you are.

One person took the optimistic approach which is probably the best use of the new feature we've seen so far.
