Snapchat adds 'Group Video Chat' feature and friend tagging in stories

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.

"Today, we're making Chat even more fun". Tap the video icon to start a live group video chat, or tap on the phone icon for a voice call. With group chat, the app expands its functionality and gives users another way to communicate privately.

Simply enter an existing Group Chat, or create a new Group with the friends or family you'd like to see. As usual, all of the same face filters will be available to users while they're in a group video chat. Meerkat pivoted to providing video messaging for small groups, rather like a video version of AOL Instant Messenger.

Since then, users have made millions of calls on Snapchat each day, according to the Verge.

Once any of your friends accept the invite, a small bubble will come up right above your keyboard, and this is how you will know they've joined. After you tag the person to your snap, other users viewing the video will be able to swipe up to instantly add them or watch their public videos.

If you're tagged in a Snap, you'll receive a notification Snapchat's chat section that you've been mentioned in a Story.

Snapchat is having a bad time for a few months now. The chat tool also feels a lot like an app already popular with younger generations: Houseparty.

Instagram, owned by Facebook, has been a relentless Borg-like foe to Snapchat, assimilating its best features and threatening its business survival.

Snapchat is a free download on the App Store.

"How you express yourself is up to you". What do you think of these new features?
