Snapchat introduces group video chat on its app

By : |April 5, 2018 1

Snapchat, the hugely popular social networking platform has announced group video chat feature on its app. Snapchat said its new service will allow as many as 16 people to chat via video at one time and 32 people to chat via voice, in a feature that’s designed “to feel less like texting and more like hanging out.”

To use the video group chat feature, enter an existing group chat you already have, or start a new group. Tap the video icon to start a live group video chat or tap on the phone icon for a voice call. The members of the group will be notified that they’ve been invited to a call. When they enter the video chat, you’ll get an alert above your keyboard to let you know they’ve joined. If you don’t want to use your camera, you can toggle it off and join with just voice.

Users will also be able to filter Snapchat lenses over their faces, like the epochal rainbow vomiting mouth or puppy dog ears.

Additionally, Snapchat has also announced Mentions which lets users tag friends in the Snaps they add to their Story. Users need to start by typing “@…” and then enter the username of the person they’d like to mention. In some cases, users may need to type the full username. Viewers will be able to swipe up on your Snaps to watch the tagged account’s public Story or add them as a friend.

    Snapchat introducing group video chat on its app is good. But snapchat app is mainly used for social and casual interactions. However, for business meetings, I would recommend using quality video calling apps like webex, R-HUB HD video conferencing servers etc. They work well.
