Are you on Snapchat? If so, you are definitely not alone.

The developers claim 100 million people use it across the globe, but in case you're not one of them, Snapchat is the app where you send a video or photo on your phone and it disappears 10 seconds after your friends open it, forever. 

Well, maybe not forever anymore.

Yesterday, the company announced that it's changing things up with a new feature called Memories, which lets users save and use old snaps from their phones photo album.

Kurt Wagner is a Senior editor with Recode and he joins the show to talk about why the feature's arrival means that Snapchat has some big future plans.
