Snapchat is testing a new Status feature that allows you to check-in and show what you’re currently up to on Snapchat’s Snap Map.

The status is only visible to friends you share your location with. These statuses are then collected together into what Snapchat is calling your Passport, a private log of the places you’ve visited. 

How to use the feature

You can access the feature by opening up Snap Maps and hitting the Status button in the bottom left corner. From there, you can select a from a list of places around you, or type in a custom place.

You’ll be presented with a list of Bitmoji, with activities that correspond to that location. Once you’ve selected your location, the Bitmoji showing the activity will show up on the map, and a tooltip will tell people where exactly you are.

As with Snap Maps before, you can choose to share your location with your friends, some friends, or activate Ghost Mode
