With the new December 2017 Snapchat update there will no longer be the ability to “Add Nearby”. We are not certain how much this was used but Snapchat decided to do away with the feature. Was this something you used? Are you sad to see it go?
Although Add Nearby is no longer an option 😔 You can still add friends by scanning their Snapcode or using Search 🔍 to find their username.
