Snapchat Users Can Now Group Chat And Mention Each Other

An update to the popular app lets users participate in group video chats and mention other accounts on their snaps

The messaging platform Snapchat rolled out video mentions and group chats last week. Taking a couple of cues from competitors like Facebook, the app now lets users engage in group video chats—while wearing Snapchat’s famous face lenses. Voice group chats allow for up to 32 members, while video ones work for 16. You can alternate between the two during any call.

And, just like on Instagram Stories (which have been a real Snapchat killer), users can now mention other accounts on posts, which will send a notification to the tagged user. Another feature of the mentions is that viewers can swipe up on the handle to see any other public stories of the tagged account, or add them as friends.
