It's a great day to be on Snapchat, particularly if you live in a big city, because today Snapchat rolled out Geostickers — Snapchat stickers that changed based on your location. If you are wondering how to get Snapchat Geostickers on your mobile device and join in the fun, this article will break it all down for you.
Geostickers are the amazing cross between Geofilters and Snapchat stickers you already love and use all the time. You now have the ability to use stickers unique to your location. If you live in one of these major cities — Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, Honolulu, London, Sydney, São Paulo, Paris, and Riyadh — you have the new stickers along with the latest version of the app. If you do not live near those areas, I'm sorry to say that you will have to wait, at least for now. Hopefully with the popularity of the feature rising, Snapchat will roll them out in more areas. Here is to hoping!
The new stickers are there to help you express your individuality and share your location in a fun new way. It's original and fun to use, not to mention — gives me more reasons to use Snapchat. I'm already addicted to the app and this will not make things easier on me! For anyone else who wants to join in, here is how you get them on your phone.
1. Update Your Snapchat App
The first this you will need to do is update your Snapchat app to it's latest version. You will go into the App Store and download/update the version you have on your phone.
With this new version you will find that the Geostickers are included and all you have to do is access it.
2. Take A Photo And Go To The Stickers
When you open the app and take a photo, you will need to go into the sticker options. They are located in the top right corner of the screen. Pressing it will take you here — the sticker menu. As you scroll right you will see the Geosticker option pop up.
They will be located under the icon that looks like the Google Maps location bubble. Depending on where you are, you will have an arrangement of stickers at your disposal. These are the ones available in Los Angeles.
4. Sticker Away
Then all you have to do is have fun. Move the stickers around, shrink or expand them on the screen — the world is yours.
