For example, you can quickly swipe up on a geo-tagged Snap from a local restaurant to see ratings from Foursquare, view the menu and make a reservation with OpenTable, and read reviews from TripAdvisor.

'As we learn more about how to improve Context Cards, we will be adding more partners and additional information'.

Snap said many locations will also have Stories integrated into their Context Cards.

To find context cards, swipe up on any Snaps that says "more" at the bottom.

Security guard shot prior to Las Vegas massacre, sheriff says
The sheriff said, "We believe he made a decision to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan he carried out". McKendry was parked in front of the Mandalay Bay hotel Sunday night when Paddock started shooting from his 32nd-floor room.

You will be able to book a table through the app partnered with Bookatable and hail a ride through the app partnered with Uber.

Now Snapchat wants to share more info about that location - like how far away it is, or what kind of food served there - with other users on the app. For example, someone may send you a picture of a plate of food they're now devouring, and add a geofilter to the image detailing where exactly they are.

The feature will first roll out to Snapchat users in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

Not all of the services and information will display at once for every location, but Snap says the idea is to create a personalized feed that's relevant to what each user might need at the time.

Woman shot dead after running over Miami Beach police officer
A pair of tourists from Philly witnessed the initial crash from their dinner at the Sugar Factory patio along Ocean Drive. The officer who was struck by the vehicle lost consciousness and was taken to an area hospital, but is expected to be OK.

Over 77% of Snapchatter in the United Kingdom are over 18, 43% of this is made of parents. Snapchat, which boasts a young-skewing audience, averaged 173 million daily users worldwide in the second quarter.

Its launch marks an enormous shift for Snapchat, which is becoming much more like a full-blown social network that's plugged into lots of different services, rather than the camera app it regularly claims to be.

One trillion Snaps are taken in a year, 3 billion a day on average. The outage reportedly took place late on Monday but Snapchat admitted to the issue on Tuesday, which means millions of users could have been left frustrated for hours together.
