The web version only supports messaging and video calling at the moment. However, according to Engadget, Snap has expressed its plans to eventually add support for augmented reality lenses. The company is also introducing privacy features to Snapchat for Web. For instance, it will block any detected screenshot attempts, including those taken with shortcuts. It’s also adding a privacy screen to block chats if you move to a separate window.

Snap has announced the release of a browser-based version of its messaging service, which was previously a mobile-only app. After 11 years, Snapchat is now accessible on a desktop in addition to an iPhone. Currently only available to Snapchat+ subscribers, Snapchat for Web will eventually be accessible to all users.


  • Additionally, Snapchat for Web will not include ads or other features that generate revenue. However, according to a Snap spokesperson, more mobile-exclusive features will come to the web version if demand allows. What do you think about Snapchat coming to desktop? Are you a Snapchat+ subscriber? Do you plan on using this new version?

  • As video calling is becoming more popular on the platform, Snapchat for Web will be perfect for longer video calls. Engadget also suggests that Snapchat for Web will help Snap compete with other messaging apps like Discord, where users often hang out while playing games.
