After nearly a decade of waiting, Snapchat is finally available as a web app! Yes, you read that right, Snapchat For Web is now a thing.
Snapchat is one of the most popular social media platforms that has certainly stood the test of time. Unfortunately, there has never been a web version of Snapchat. Furthermore, using Snapchat on a PC via an emulator didn’t work well either.
Fortunately, that changes today with the release of the highly anticipated Snapchat for Web. As the name suggests, Snapchat Web users can easily access Snapchat on their desktops and laptops, without using their mobile phone.
At the time of writing this article, the web version of Snapchat offers some notable features such as chat responses and chat replies. In addition, users can make audio/video calls and continue regular chats. However, some other great features like Lenses will be added later.
It is worth noting that, Snapchat for web is a premium feature and is available exclusively to Snapchat+ subscribers only in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
That said, Snapchat has confirmed that the feature will be available worldwide soon. Obviously Snapchat For Web is at a very early stage and it will get better with time.
It is worth noting that Web Snapchat currently works perfectly in the Google Chrome web browser and support for other popular browsers will arrive very soon.
