 Video and messaging chat have become popular with both casual and business users.  From messaging apps like WhatsApp, Skype Mobile, Google Hangouts and Viber it is obvious the consumer is wanting more options to improving their communication tools.

The developers of SnapChat, a popular chatting app available on Android and iPhone, seem to want in on the action.  Recently, their team announced they would add a SnapChat Video Chat feature, creating yet another option for users.

 

 

A post from the official SnapChat Blog explains:

“We could not be more thrilled to announce Chat.
Swipe right on a friend’s name in your Snapchat inbox to start chatting. When you leave the chat screen, messages viewed by both you and your friend will be cleared – but either of you can always tap or screenshot to save anything you’d like to keep (addresses, to-do lists, etc.)!
We let you know when a friend is Here in your Chat so that you can give each other your full attention. And if you’re both Here, simply press and hold to share live video – and Chat face-to-face!”
 
 
 

Snapchat was founded, and still is, a messaging app that allows a user to send a short video clip to another person.  What makes them different from rivals?  Well, currently, the app lets you take pictures and videos and send them to a user.  When you send those pictures and videos, you have to set how long the person can view it for.  After that, the recipient can't see it anymore....It's gone!

Happy Chatting!  We'll be trying out the new features here at Captevrix and we'll let everyone know what we think.
