Let us pray to the Snapchat gods!

Ugh. It's the worst, isn't it? One minute you're enjoying Josh Dun's onstage escapades at whatever festival he and Tyler are playing that weekend and then you're suddenly yanked from the stage and transported to the front room of your ultimate crush who's hanging out with his new bae. 

According to Mashable, Snapchat has suddenly realised how much we all hate being exposed by the sneaky auto-play feature and has decided to get rid of it - but not in it's entirety. You see, Snapchat never takes one thing away with replacing it with something wayyyy better...


Let us introduce to you, the 'Stories Playlist'. 

Yep, instead of letting your entire friends list run through as one long, traumatising movie, you'll soon be able to select the stories you actually WANT to see and put them all into one long playlist. That means you can select whose stories you want to watch without the added aggro of swiping away before you expose yourself to your crush as a stalker. 

Here it is in action:



Ohhhhh, yes! It's like everything we've ever dreamed of! LAY IT ON US, SNAPCHAT!
