July 21, 2022 – Snap, Inc., the company behind the social augmented reality (AR) app Snapchat, has recently announced that it is introducing ‘Snapchat for Web’, offering a new way for users to stay connected through the Snap Camera whilst they are at their computers. Snap added that Snapchat for Web is currently only available to subscribers of the company’s recently announced Snapchat+ service.

According to the company, every day, 332 million people open Snapchat on their phones, and more than 100 million Snapchatters use Snap’s voice and video calling solutions each month on average.
