On Monday, Snapchat rolled out a small update to its app, giving users access t0 more than 320 stickers of everything from rainbows to walruses to ice cream cones. Happy? Sad? Excited? Sorry? Take your pick of a sticker to help you say so.

How do you use them? It's easy. To add a sticker to a snap or a Story, tap the button on the top-right corner of your snap's preview screen, then tap the sticker of your choice, and -- voila -- it becomes part of your post.

To add a sticker to a video, press and hold the sticker to pin it to the object of your choice. The video sticker will move along, rotate, or scale with whatever object it's pinned to.

The stickers are part of a larger push to make Snapchat even more interactive.

"We're excited to introduce Chat 2.0. You can start by sending a few chats, and when your friend shows up, start talking or video chatting instantly with one tap," Snapchat stated in a blog post when the 2.0 update came out in March. "Your friend can simply listen if you want to sing them a song, or watch if you have a new puppy to show them. If they aren't there, you can quickly send an audio note to say what you mean. And sometimes, a sticker says it best :)"
