Introducing Group Video Chat

Snapchat introduces group video chat feature: Here's how you can use it

Snapchat is introducing several new features this week, including the ability to make group video calls and a "Mentions" feature that allows users to tag friends in snaps uploaded onto Stories.

"In spring 2016, we introduced Video and Voice Chat as part of a large Chat update with the goal of making catching up on Snapchat feel less like texting and more like really hanging out", said Snapchat. To try it out, start up a group chat, tap the video icon, and each friend will receive a notification inviting them to join the call.

If your crew is even bigger, you'll have to rely on a standard group voice call, which lets you chat with up to 32 people.

If you're not looking your best at that moment, no sweat: you can join the chat with just voice, as well as toggle between video and voice.

Group Video Chat and Mentions will be rolling out to Snapchatters globally over the next few weeks. Then, tap on the video or phone icon to initiate the video or audio chat respectively.

Snapchat has become the preferred platform to share instant images and videos that document a user's life.

Once a call is established between two people, friends of either user can be added to the call. People that see tagged snaps will be able to swipe up and add the person as a friend, according to The Verge.

Your mates will be notified in Chat if you tag them in a Story. Snapchat will be bringing the feature to more users and markets over the next week. Facebook Messenger has filters too, but only supports six callers; Houseparty can handle eight callers, but doesn't have filters. Of course, this being Snapchat, you'll also have access to the wide array of lenses the app offers.

That particular component should be useful, as Snap Maps has increasingly been a hot spot for real-time, first-person updates during breaking news, like natural disasters and protests, as well as more entertainment-focused moments like concerts and popular sporting events.
