Snapchat will soon let users share their snap stories across the web

Snapchat will soon let users share their snap stories across the web

This feature is now available in Australia and Canada, where both, the iOS and Android apps have already been updated with the new design, which was being teased by the company last November.

A Twitter spokesman declined to comment about the report. With just a swipe, users can see photo and video messages from friends or content from media partners.

Details on the tools were scant, and anonymous sources familiar with the product's development told reporter Selina Wang that its actual functionality could change drastically over the next few months before it is actually released.

How To Add To Photos And Videos In Stories
Other changes Instagram announced to its Stories feature is the ability to upload photos or videos of any size (dimension). While some of them are available for download via Google Play Store, the new Gboard Go app hasn't been listed there yet.

The Snapchat app is created to automatically bring up a camera feature when the app is opened. Currently, in order to post videos on the platform, you have to use the classic cumbersome process where you have to open the app, go to the compose button, tap on camera, record it and share to the world. Stories will play natively on Twitter but not on Facebook (there they will appear like YouTube videos); if the link is clicked, users will be redirected to Snapchat's website. Bloomberg reports that Twitter wants to change this now by reducing the number of steps it takes to tweet a video or broadcast live.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was once quoted in saying that Snapchat is "very modern" and admittedly described Twitter as being "confusing". This new feature will be introduced alongside the roll-out of the application's major redesign. The report claims that the company is developing a Snapchat-like tool to popularize video sharing on its network and bring in more users.

Twitter has been facing increasing pressure from investors and industry watchers who say the app has been losing users to other popular apps like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.
