Geostickers are special stickers available in some of the biggest cities around the world — send them in Chat or stick them on Snaps!
Geostickers are available now in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Washington DC, Honolulu, London, Sydney, São Paulo, Paris, and Riyadh. You’ll need to have your location services enabled to see them!
The free feature is an evolution of options Snapchat tested in February, which let users pay (from $5 up) to design and use their own filters within a geofenced area — and marked yet another attempt at monetizing different parts of its service. Despite the first attempt at location-based goodies proving popular, it closed the paid filter store in June. How long will the new stickers last is anyone’s guess, but perhaps the bigger questions is how long before some other app does something similar?
