Multimedia social networking app Snapchat revolutionised the way people communicate with each other with images and videos rather than mere text messages. It brought the smartphone camera to the centre of things as its homepage opens directly to the camera, making it easier for users to share moments instantly with their friends and followers.

However, any social networking app seems the best when used in your native language, especially when you’re expressing yourself using that app. Snapchat offers support for dozens of languages (check the list of supported languages at the end of the article) and here is how to change the language in your Snapchat app.
