Snapchat just announced group video chats and Story mentions

Users can start the group chat with just a tap on the video icon.

Snapchat is allowing users to use filters, join with only their voice or only send messages for friends to read while in the Group Chat.

Snapchat has launched a new feature that lets up to 16 people take part in a live chat together, using either video or just their voices.

If you want to spend quality time with friends but everyone is far away from each other, you can still do so through social and messaging apps. When you start a group video chat, they'll get a notification that you are inviting them to join and they need to accept to join the chat. Every conversation is unique!

Mention is another feature that is now available to everyone on Snapchat. According to TNW, you can now Mention your friends in your Snaps. Now, you can tag friends in the Snaps you add to your Story!

Snapchat recently rolled out a new GIF feature following in the exact footsteps of Instagram. Instagram introduced a section similar to Snapchat where users can post temporary stories to display to followers.

Just like Instagram, Snapchat's GIF feature is powered by GIPHY, and is loaded win the Sticker Picker beside the existing options from Snapchat. For once, it shows that Snapchat can indeed "copy" a popular feature from its biggest rival-Instagram. Anybody who sees the Story and is not friends with the tagged person, they will be able to swipe up to add that friend or watch their public Stories.
