Users can play jams from iTunes, Spotify, SoundCloud, or any other app while recording. The feature is available on iOS with the release of Snapchat version 9.2.0. However, android users will have to wait for a while before the feature will be made available to them.

Earlier, Snapchat updated its application by adding features like text messaging and video calling.

Snapchat's immense popularity among young users made it one of the most closely watched social media companies in the world. With Snapchat, users can send photos and videos that disappear shortly after they are viewed.

In 2014, Snapchat left Twitter behind to become the third most used social media app among the millennial group 18 to 34 year olds.

Almost a third of the 18 to 24-year-olds now use Snapchat, compared to 23.8 percent of Twitter app users, said the latest Mobile Metrix report by US internet analytics company comScore.
