Snapchat has been undergoing plenty of changes, starting from a revamp to the Android app to introducing shows last year. This week there have been many new announcements from their side, with lots of interesting stuff that you should keep an eye out for.
To play with your friends, other than messaging and the regular 'snapping', they have added a new set of six basic games: Bitmoji Party, Tiny Royale, Snake Squad, C.A.T.S. Drift Race, Zombie Rescue Squad, and Alphabear Hustle. While playing those, you can still communicate with your friends via text or voice calls. Snap Games have begun rolling out and should be available for all users very soon.
Snap Originals were introduced in 2018, and because of their popularity among Snapchatters, ten new shows are coming in shortly. Snapchat has partnered up with the likes of BuzzFeed and other movie production companies to offer you the greatest and most personal stories ever, exclusively crafted to be consumed on mobile devices. Stay tuned!
If you ever wanted to breathe life into landmarks, Snap's Landmarkers are here for you. Snap has partnered up with creators from around the world to create fancy Lenses for landmarks and other buildings. Just watch the embedded video below. But other than these, the app can now recognize songs, show products on Amazon, help you solve math problems, and has optimized lenses for pets to let you put glasses on them, etc.
App Stories allow Snapchat users to share content right from the Snapchat camera to a Story inside another application. Sharing Stories to Tinder is the first one to come, with other apps on the line too.
Soon, you will be able to share custom stickers with the content you love from your favorite services in a Snap. The supported services list includes Netflix, GoFundMe, VSCO, and more.
The Bitmoji Kit, for example, lets you bring your avatar into the Fitbit app. There is even a Bitmoji Clock Face to keep you cheered up while reminding you to drink water and eat food and log those activities.
