READ the chat stories that everyone is becoming “addicted to” and people “can’t stop reading”.
Every story is told as a bite-sized text message conversation, as if you were reading someone else's chat history.
Simply swipe left from the camera tab in the Snapchat app until you see a screen tab labeled You can tap anybody's name to trigger to view a friend's story, or stories in the order they were posted if the user posted several of them.
Stories live for 24 hours and can be viewed again and again for that period.
Once the 24-hour time limit is up, they are automatically deleted.
Another way to see that friends have posted new stories is to look at their profile icon in your Conversations tab if you've been snapping with them.
