SNAPCHAT REMOVING “SPEED” FILTER

Snapchat is removing a feature that displays how fast a user is travelling when taking a picture or video footage.

Parent company Snap said it was because the speed filter was “barely used”.

But the company is being sued by the parents of two young men, who allege the filter encouraged their sons to drive at dangerous speeds and three deaths were due to “negligent design”.

It will take a few weeks to disappear from the app of the 500 million people who use Snapchat.
