Snapchat Adds Group Video Chat and Friend Tagging in Stories
When you tag a friend, you have to start typing in “@,” spell out the username of the person, then tap on the name you want tagged. Participants who see the tagged snap will be able to swipe up and add the person as a friend or watch any public stories they have posted. The person you tag in your story, will be notified in the chat window.
Snapchat also said that:
it’s worth wondering about the timing of this new feature, which comes almost two years after the company announced video chat. It’s possible that Snap wants to take advantage of the #deletefacebook movement offering people as much functionality as possible to connect on their platform instead of the incumbent’s.
Snapchat is more popular in the group of young age as compared to the mid-age people or above. Keeping this thing in mind Snapchat adds new features accordingly in order to keep engaged the people.
