Snape Chat requires location services to use all filters




application of the video messaging Snapchat has begun to require users to operate the site services when using the basic filters, according to a number of users of the temporary video application, which was entered with the latest update of the application from the user with the building number 2017.05.25, Google Play Store last week.

Initial reports indicate that the application requires access to the user’s location even if the user does not use geofilters or speedometer, and limited service tests confirmed on Monday that this was the case, although the company based in Venice, On this issue formally.

App users who disable location services when trying to use filters show a message that filters are based on location services and please enable those services and be accessed by the app from within your mobile device settings.

The video messaging application previously required users to operate location services only if geographic filters and accelerometers were used, and a number of users reported that Enhanced Face Recognition filters were still functioning normally without the need to activate location services.

The owner of Snape has not yet explained the change and the reasons behind it, while recent release notes indicate that users can create a story for friends located in a particular geographic location, which may be the direct cause behind the application’s request to activate the site services feature.

Users can circumvent requests for permission to access a user’s geographic location by manually disabling access to the location from the system settings menu on the mobile device.

Disabling permission to use a user’s geographic location returns filters to work again, which may assume that this request is not essential in the design of the filters, and that requesting the application to access user location data for basic filters may be a mistake.

In recent months, Snape has been working to improve application performance and expand user acquisition rates after it was previously adopted by users of the iOS mobile operating system prior to the company’s IPO earlier this year.
