Two notable features coming to Snapchat should help it feel more like a comprehensive social media platform: group video chat and support for mentions.
The group video chat feature on Snapchat is only limited to 16 people. "Now you can video chat with up to 16 of your friends at one time", Snapchat said on its website. Each group member will be notified that they've been invited to a call.
You can choose to join a video chat with just your voice or you can toggle between video and voice in case you haven't got dressed yet. For users who don't want to be seen in the video, there's going to be an option that would let them join the group chat using only their voice.
Not only are mega group chats now a thing, but Snapchat also now lets you start giant voice calls as well. Face filter lenses can be used during the calls, and only friends of users on the call can be added in. To start a group voice call, just tap the phone icon in a group chat. Meerkat pivoted to providing video messaging for small groups, rather like a video version of AOL Instant Messenger.
Mentions in Snapchat work just like they do in other applications.
Snapchat is also borrowing a feature from Instagram Stories with today's update.
Snapchat has been busy adding a slew of other features to the app over the last few weeks.
Deluxe bitmoji app: Features new hairstyles and skin tones and more inclusive avatars.
Share Snapchat Stories with anyone: Users can now share Snapchat stories with anyone, regardless of whether they have the app.
Instead of having to scroll through Snap Maps to see where your friends are, Snapchat will start giving you updates that you can swipe through. This should make it a (ahem) snap to tag the right person.
