Snapchat releases video chat with up to 16 people; see how to use | Social networks

Snapchat allows you to make group video calls. The user can chat at the same time with up to 16 friends, who receive an invitation and decide whether to accept or not to participate in the video chat. It is possible to wear lenses, disable the camera and chat only by voice or even send text messages during the video conference.

In addition to group video calls, the app launched yet another platform feature: the men in stories. For this, the user just needs to type @ and then the name of the account to be quoted. Thus, the feature works similarly to the existing one in the rival Instagram Stories app. It is worth mentioning that the person mentioned will receive notification from the app about this activity. Also, the option of inserting GIFs in the stories also returned to Snapchat, which had been removed after a case of racism.

Check out, in the following tutorial, how to start a Group Video Chat on Snapchat. The feature is being distributed to users and should be available to everyone this week. It is necessary to have the latest version of the application installed on the iPhone (iOS) or Android phone check how to update your apps.
