Snapchat’s messaging and video chat features were first available in browsers in July, but only in certain markets and for Snapchat+ subscribers.
Snapchat for Web is now available to all messaging app users worldwide. It may be a better option for users who need to type a lot and send a lot of messages because they will be looking at a larger screen and have access to a real keyboard.
The Web interface is simple, but it can be used to send photos as well as make audio and video calls. According to a company spokesperson, video calling has recently become more popular among its users.
Giving users Web access to the feature may result in longer video calls. The spokesperson also stated that if there is enough demand, Snap may bring more of its core features to the web interface.
Furthermore, with the release of iOS 16, Snap has launched lock screen widgets for the iPhone. The widgets enable users to create shortcuts for the conversations they want—perhaps for people they frequently talk to—so they can launch chats with a single tap from their screen.
In terms of shortcuts, the Snapchat app will add new ones to the top of its chat page. They’ll make it easier for users to access unread Snaps, chats from friends, and story replies. They will also display reminders for upcoming birthdays or conversations to which users have not yet responded. Finally, Snap has released Question Stickers, which users can add to their stories and Snaps. If they haven’t already, the company says these features will be available to users soon.
