Snapchat’s ‘Our Story’ photo stream feature goes public

Ephemeral photo-sharing service Snapchat has rolled out a new feature, which brings a stream of photos from big events to users.

The ‘Our Story’ feature delivers crowd-sourced images from big events around the world, in order to provide Snapchat loyalists with a running stream.

The company has recently been testing the feature on a limited segment of member during the Electric Daisy Carnival, the World Cup in Brazil and the Lollapalooza music festival.

Now the feature is available to all users complete with a Live section allowing users to view images as they’re submitted, if they’re following the big event.

Previously, users were only able to see the stream if they were live at the event, but now anyone from around the world can feel like they’re at the festival.

On its blog the company wrote: We were absolutely blown away when Snapchatters contributed over 350 hours of Snaps to Our Story during EDC, Rio, Outside Lands, and Lollapalooza. It was so much fun experiencing our favorite events with all of you!

“You’ll notice today that there’s a new “Live” section beneath your Recent Updates. That’s where you’ll be able to experience Stories contributed by the Snapchat community at all sorts of events. It’s a great way to check out what’s happening around the world.”

Snapchat is yet to clarify which events will be showcased by Our Story.
