A new article on Social Media Today reports that Snapchat has announced some new features to enhance in-app engagement, while it's also now making its web-based platform available to all users, which had previously been a Snapchat+ exclusive.



First off, Snap's adding new Chat Shortcuts to make it easier to manage unread messages, and reply to Stories. The new chat shortcuts, which will be at the top of your Chat screen, will provide another way to filter your messages, and find key prompts:

"Our Shortcuts will also remind you if you owe a reply and show you when birthdays are coming up, so you never miss someone's special day or leave a friend on read."
Could that be a handy way to stay on top of your chats, especially if you have a lot of conversations going at any given time?

Further, Snap's also adding new Question Stickers for Stories, similar to the same option already available in Instagram and other apps. And in line with the latest updates in iOS 16, Snapchat's adding new Lock Screen Widgets, which will make it easier to receive notifications, and enter Snap chats direct from your home screen.

Finally, Snap's also making the desktop version of its app available to all users.

Initially launched back in July to Snapchat+ users only, the web version enables users to send messages, conduct video chats and voice calls - basically all the central connection elements of the app will now be available via your desktop PC. Snapchat for Web also enables you to use selected Snap Lenses for video calls.

What do you think?

I mean, the expanded availability could at least make it easier for people to keep in touch with their friends via Snap, in more ways, which should be particularly beneficial for the increasing cohort of people that are working from home, for example?

    With Snapchat, you can add fun creative tools to your story, so your followers can see what you are up to. Snapchat has just added an array of new creative tools which allows you to add stickers to your story. You can find it in the top right corner of your story. Tap the pen icon and choose the sticker you want to add. You can set it on top of a photo or video to decorate your content, or you can double tap it to place it on top of a blank space. To add stickers to your snap, tap the message icon in the top left corner of your screen. Then tap the sticker icon to see the stickers.

    The new changes look like Snapchat is on the right track. These new engagement features will help them get an edge over their competitors.
