Snapchat Now Also Available on Your Computer
Messaging service Snapchat can now also be used via the PC or Mac. The company has made the web version of its service, which launched earlier this summer to paying subscribers, available to everyone.
With Snapchat for the web, it becomes a lot easier to send and answer messages or make a video call when you’re at the computer. Instead of a mobile app, just use your favourite browser and your computer’s keyboard and webcam. All chats are neatly synchronized with the app version so that you can resume a conversation ‘on the go’ later.
As mentioned, Snapchat for the web has been around for some time (since July) for paying users. This subscription formula is called Snapchat+ and has also been available in Belgium since mid-August. Users pay 4.49 euros per month or 44.99 euros per year.
In return, they access new Bitmoji wallpapers, a function to indicate a BFF (best friend forever) and so-called Ghost Paths. This allows you to see on a map where friends have been in the past 24 hours, provided they have made their location visible.
Snapchat isn’t the first messaging service to make its way to the desktop: WhatsApp also has a computer client available, and the same goes for Apple’s Messages and FaceTime.
