TL;DR: Hoping to stay relevant with GenZ’s newest popularized app, Snapchat has begun mirroring the features that BeReal offers.
Don’t have BeReal, or have it and wait for that BeReal notification to go off every day? No need! If you have Snapchat, you’re golden. Snapchat has introduced a new feature that offers the same visuals as BeReal. However, Snapchat provides more than just a rectangle on the corner of your screen. Have you ever wanted your BeReal photos to be the same size? Have you ever wanted your BeReal photos in different shapes? Snapchat allows for formats that offer vertical, horizontal, circle picture-in-picture, and green screens that come in all different sizes. This will let you be able to be more creative with your pictures.
Although BeReal has been a big part of GenZ’s lives recently, Snapchat can still be relevant because it gives everyone a different experience. BeReal only allows you to post once daily, but Snapchat will enable you to post as many times as you want. Snapchat’s front and rear-facing camera feature lets you add filters to your photos.
Are you selective with whom you want to engage? Snapchat allows you to be selective with whom you wish to receive specific pictures, videos, and messages. It lets you have group chats, private stories, and the most significant incentive, streaks. If you continue sending a Snapchat once a day to the same person, you will have a number next to the person’s name indicating how many days in a row you have been sending photos to each other back and forth. This everyday action will form a “streak” between you and your friend.
Which do you choose: Snapchat, BeReal, or Both?
