Send private messages and limited duration
Snapchat application is an instant messaging program that lets you send text, videos and photos to one or more friends. The difference with other text messaging application or WhatsApp is that Snapchat messages have a defined duration. When you send photos or videos can put a time duration of 1 to 10 seconds, when your friend receives the contact, just the time limit, then those images will be deleted from the mobile phone of the person who received them automatically. Messages can also be up to 24 hours if you send in “chat”
