In the middle of summer, Snap, the developer of the popular messaging service Snapchat, announced the launch of a web version of its app. At the time, it was available to Snapchat users in Australia and New Zealand, and Snapchat+ subscribers in the US, Canada, and the UK. Now the web version of the messenger is available to users of the service around the world.
The ability to use the web version of Snapchat allows users to send messages and make video calls from their computers. This can be convenient when you need to write a lot of messages and transfer other information, as it is more convenient with a large screen and full keyboard.
Snapchat’s web interface is quite simple and intuitive. With it, users can easily send text messages and pictures, as well as make audio and video calls. The company noticed an increasing demand for video communication, so the launch of the web version of the messenger could be very timely. It is also noted that in the future, other proprietary features of the Snapchat mobile application may appear in the web version of the service if requested by users.
As a reminder, the Snapchat web app is a stripped-down version of the mobile app that focuses primarily on messaging and calling rather than creating stories. As in the mobile application, user messages in the web version of the service are automatically deleted 24 hours after viewing.
