Snapchat may soon allow you to tag people in snaps and stories

In yet another move to outdo its competitors, particularly Instagram, image and video sharing platform, Snapchat, revealed that users can now tag their friends on the stories they post.

The guys at Snapchat seem to be playing around with a new feature, not yet rolled out, which copies the "tagging" feature from Instagram. However, the feature is not being rolled out to all users, and is now in the pilot phase, the company said to TechCrunch. When someone views this Snap, an option to avail more details will appear as a swipe up. Also, whoever gets tagged will receive a notification, so nothing will remain unseen.

Drake Plays Sideline Defense To Help Toronto Raptors Snap Rockets' Winning Streak
The second half had been a series of Rockets runs to within a manageable margin only for Toronto to rally back. The Rockets, who launch from long range at historic rates, matched their season low in 3s made with nine.

The biggest omission in this new feature: It doesn't allow users to search for other accounts while constructing the mention, meaning that for now you'll have to know and enter the handle of the account you wish to tag by memory.

Apparently the new tagging system is now being rolled out - so be on the lookout!

Facebook was one of the first to allow users to tag other accounts in photos uploaded to the site. As spotted by Matt Rappaport and reported by TechCrunch, Snapchat is now testing the ability for users to tag other users within Snaps by including their username in a text field. Usernames will automatically generate a tappable link to the associated profile.

Last month, the company added a "Tabs" feature to the app that separates Snaps into Group Chats and active Stories.
