Snapchat gets group video calls and Mentions feature for tagging friends
Apr 04, 2018, 01:42
"Now you can video chat with up to 16 of your friends at one time", Snapchat said. This means that Snapchat users can now be seen and heard by as many as 16 friends and family members at one time. Facebookintroduced group video calling on Messenger back in 2016, and you've always been able to tag other users in stories on Facebook-owned Instagram. Just like Instagram Stories, when you mention someone on your snap, they will get notified through a simple notification in chat. If you have more people who want to participate, up to 32 people can join a group voice chat instead.
While Snapchat is known for its disappearing videos, more than 60 percent of its 187 million daily users take advantage of its chat services, the company told Mashable. With group chat, the app expands its functionality and gives users another way to communicate privately.
The new group chat option is being heralded on the Snap Inc. This means that whenever someone mentions another user in their Story, that user will receive a notification via Chat informing them of the mention.
When a user sees a tagged Snap, they can swipe up and add the person as a friend or view any public Stories.
The feature was spotted last month, and is officially rolling out with the new update.
Mentioning other users is a rather trivial feature for regular consumers but is extremely valuable to celebrities and high-profile users that have large audiences. Going forward, Snapchat users can tag their friends on the stories.
The tagging feature will let users tell friends when they've posted a video they're featured in or promote a brand or celebrity by making it easier for others to add them. It will also match a feature in Facebook's Messenger app. Of course, this being Snapchat, you'll also have access to the wide array of lenses the app offers. The feature appears when you press and hold down on certain "tiles" in the Discover part of the app.
