Snapchat's shares fell 1.5 percent to $20.42 in early trading on Tuesday, while Facebook's shares were little changed.

Users can make videos that play in reverse with the "Rewind" feature.

Stories, where users post short video clips to a running diary throughout the day, has taken off on Instagram, where it claims to have 200 million daily viewers for the feature.
