Some updates are big, while others are small. Let's start with the small: the app's icon has been updated to a pink and purple gradient. Then, there are the new customizable chat themes. Other features are much more than physical such as the forward to reply to specific messages, Selfie Stickers, and Vanish Mode.

Selfie Stickers is described as "a unique hybrid of Boomerang, emojis, and selfies." Vanish Mode, on the other hand, is similar to Snapchat's disappearing messages. Aside from the two, another big update is Watch Together which allows you to share videos on-screen during video calls.

He continues, "Over the past six months, we’ve been busy launching products and features that make it easier and more fun to be with your friends and family when you can’t be together in person, whether that’s popping into a virtual room to catch up, or watching funny videos together. You can even easily connect with many of your favorite small businesses, even if you can’t visit them IRL."
