Snap adds Group Video Calls to Snapchat

Snap adds Group Video Calls to Snapchat”

Users will also be able to use Snapchat's famous face filters - called Lenses - in the video calls.

Snapchat has introduced a new feature for users: video calling for up to 16 friends.

If you want to spend quality time with friends but everyone is far away from each other, you can still do so through social and messaging apps. Once started, everyone will get a notification informing them the call has begun-and they can choose to join in the group video call or decline. Every conversation is unique! But when chatting is not enough for some of you, the next best thing would be to do a group video chat. In a blog post, the platform announced a new feature that allows up to 16 people to come together in group video chats.

Mention is another feature that is now available to everyone on Snapchat.

In an email statement to NDTV Gadgets 360° about the mentions feature, Snap said, "Let your friends know who you're with or if you're thinking about them". Anybody you tag in a Story will be notified within the chat window when you swipe left.

Snapchat recently rolled out a new GIF feature following in the exact footsteps of Instagram. Recall that Instagram added GIFs to Stories last January-enabling more ways for users to express themselves. Instagram admittedly used a lot of techniques that Snapchat originated, but this will be the first time that Snapchat is picking something up from Instagram.

Also added to the ephemeral picture sharing app are the Friends and Discover screens.
