Now THIS is a game changer. To access more colours than the little palette at the top right hand corner allows you, start with your finger on the palette. Hold down as you would to choose a colour normally, but drag around the whole screen to find loads more. SO GOOD.

2. How to save your whole story

In the same way that you could save individual videos and snaps from your story, you can now save the whole thing as a full video by clicking the little 'download' button alongside it.

3. How to add multiple filters

Quite a complicated one to explain, REALLY easy to use once you understand. Once you've taken a Snap, scroll to the right and choose a filter as usual. To add another one, hold down and scroll LEFT and stop holding when you've chosen one. You can continue adding more by holding down and scrolling left and right consecutively.

4. How to let everyone know it's your birthday

To access funky balloons and extra filters 'cos it's your birthday and you're gonna party like it's your birthday, go to Settings > Birthday and switch it to ON. You'll also get fancy little cake emoji alongside your name in your friends' contacts so they know to wish you a Happy Birthday. YAAAS.

5. How to fit your text onto one line

Because the word 'THROWBACK' should never be split into 'THROWBA CK', duh. To do this, go to the big text 'T' as usual, write out your text and pinch it like you would when you're zooming out on a photograph until it fits onto one line. Capeesh? Cool.

So there you go, 5 secret features to seriously up your Snapchat game.
