Snapchat launches new “Group Video Chat” feature

Snapchat just launched their new ‘group video chat’ feature on the social media platform. The idea basically being a video call with multiple people on at the same time.  

Snapchat Group Video Chat

The company launched the feature on their website with the following statement: 

We designed Chat to feel less like texting and more like hanging out. That’s why when a friend opens Chat, their Bitmoji pops up to say “I’m here!” — and why your Chat conversations aren’t saved forever, by default.

Today, we’re making Chat even more fun. Now you can video chat with up to 16 of your friends at one time. Just tap the video camera icon in a Group Chat to get your friends together! Friends in the Group Chat will receive a notification inviting them to join.

How you express yourself is up to you. You can use Lenses, join only with your voice, or simply send messages that others can read while they talk. Every conversation is unique!

Group Video Chat will begin rolling out to Snapchatters globally this week.

Happy Chatting!

Team Snap

Will the feature come to the UAE? 

There’s no official news on whether this feature will come to the UAE or not. The global roll-out is set to begin this week.

Are you still on Snapchat? If yes, will you be reinstalling the app thanks to this feature or will you just wait for Instagram to get the feature?
