Snapchat Chat, Video Calling Available For 1st Time On Web

Snapchat on Monday announced to bring features like chatting and video calling to the desktop through a new web app for the first time.

Snapchat for Web is a new way for "our community to stay connected through our camera when they're at their computers," the company said in a statement.

Snapchat for Web will only be compatible with Google's Chrome browser and not Apple's Safari at the launch.

Snapchat for Web includes top messaging features like Chat Reactions and Chat Reply, along with Lenses which will roll out soon.

The social media platform Snapchat last month announced that its Snapchat Plus,

A collection of exclusive, experimental, and pre-release features, is available for $3.99 per month.

It is available in the US, Canada, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE.

Snapchat will expand the Plus feature to more countries over time.
