The popular photo and video sharing app has launched custom Stories, a revamped version of its original Stories tool, that is geared toward sharing events or special outings.

“Today we’re announcing a new way to create custom Stories – about anything, with any of your friends, even for a specific location! It’s perfect for a trip, a birthday party, or a new baby story just for the family,” Snap said in a blog post.

The new feature offers you the option of Geofencing your Story to a specific location. These geofilters use location indicators to determine where you are.

To create a new custom Story, simply tap the ‘Create Story’ icon at the top right corner of the Stories page. Once you name your story, you can invite friends to view or participate.

You can create only three custom Stories at a time and they will disappear if no one has contributed to them within 24 hours.

Check out the new feature in action below.
