Snapchat moves to web after over 10 years as mobile-only service

The well-known photo and messaging app Snapchat said that it will soon introduce Snapchat for the Web, enabling users to communicate with their friends via text messages and video calls from their computers. This comes after the company ran a mobile-only service for more than ten years.

Along with Snapchat+ subscribers in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, only users from Australia and New Zealand will initially have access to Snapchat’s new desktop version.

Snap launched Snapchat+ in June, allowing users to pay $3.99 a month for more advanced features, like changing the style of their app icon and seeing who’s viewed their content.

The web offering will be a more stripped-down version of the mobile app, primarily focusing on its messaging feature instead of its Stories feature. Like the core Snap app, messages will disappear after 24 hours, and any Snaps users watch from their desktop computers will delete right after viewing.

Snap says it will eventually bring more features of the app to the desktop version, including the ability for users to liven up their video calls with the use of Lenses. Currently, people will have to access Snapchat for Web via the Chrome browser, but the company said that it would soon support other browsers and could release a desktop app in the future.
