The Snapchat web is exclusively available for Snapchat Plus subscribers in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
Now you can save your streak with your best friend even if your phone’s battery is dead, as Snapchat is finally bringing chat and video calling features to its all-new web app. With the introduction of Snapchat for the Web, you will now be able to continue your conversations from any device. The web platform is exclusively available for Snapchat Plus subscribers in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. For now, the web app will only work with the Chrome browser. “Open your laptop and head to web.snapchat.com using Chrome to start a call or pick up where chats left off on mobile,” Snapchat said.
Snapchat Web has most of the messaging features like Chat Reactions and Chat Reply, with some other features like the ‘Snapchat Lenses’ rolling out soon. Snapchat Plus, a collection of additional features, is available for $3.99/month. The company announced last month that users would have access to “a collection of exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features.”
Snapchat for Web seems to be the first dedicated functionality for users with a premium subscription. The company may roll out the ‘Snapchat Plus subscription in more countries in the coming months. “With more than 100 million Snapchatters using our voice and video calling each month on average, we’re excited to offer a new way for our community to keep conversations going on their computers,” said Snap, the parent company of Snapchat.
Can The New Snapchat Web Replace Google Meet And Zoom?
Snapchat has just launched Snapchat for the web. The web app will allow users to chat, video call, and share snaps with friends via desktops.
Snapchat for web will initially launch for Snapchat+ subscribers in the United Kingdom, United States, New Zealand, Canada, and Australia. However, after launching it in these countries, the company intends to roll it out for Snapchat+ subscribers in Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, France, and Germany, before releasing it globally.
Snapchat for the web will let users share snaps, send messages and chat through video or regular calls. It will also allow users to benefit from the mobile messaging feature, which includes chat reactions. Snapchat also claims that it intends to bring the lens feature to video calling in the future.
To use Snapchat on the web, users must go to web.snapchat.com and Log in with their Snapchat credentials. It will then require you to complete a two-step verification process on your smartphone by default.
