(ANSA) – MILAN, JUL 19 – Snap has announced the arrival of Snapchat for the web, an app to allow users to send snaps and chat with friends via video calls, all from their computers. The software will be available to Snapchat + subscribers in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. After the initial launch, the company plans to distribute it also in France, Germany, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, before making it accessible worldwide. “With Snapchat for the web, you can send messages and snaps and chat via video,” explains the company. Snapchat for the web also allows users to take advantage of the messaging features available on mobile devices, including reactions in chat. Snap says it plans to bring its augmented reality lens feature to video calling in the future. Similar to the app experience on mobile, messages sent via Snapchat for the web will be automatically deleted after 24 hours. The company also claims that the computer version will prevent people from taking screenshots. However, he is aware that anyone can still take a picture of the screen from their phone, noting that the product is not perfect. To log into Snapchat for the web, users need to go to web.snapchat.com and log in with their username and password. From there, you will be asked to complete two-step verification on your phone by default. Once opened, you will be able to continue conversations where they left off on your mobile device. “When you use Snapchat via a desktop, your Bitmoji will appear in chats with a laptop to indicate to others that you are accessing the chat via Snapchat for the web,” the group concluded.
