Just like its popular competitors, Snapchat Web is finally at our disposal!
Sure, the company had soft-launched the update initially in just UK countries; however, now, it is available everywhere! So you must be wondering about all the ins and outs of the feature. Well, no worries!
In this article, I will not only discuss Snapchat Web but also give you a step-by-step guide to accessing the same. On that note, let’s get started!
What Is the Snapchat Web?
Around mid to late 2022, It was experimenting with its web version. While it was available in UK countries, the rest of the world was still unable to access it.
Regardless, now the web feature is available everywhere!
And while you’re using the web version, your Bitmoji will show a small laptop, which further indicates to your friends that you’re using the platform through the Web.
Along with that, the new update is completely privacy protected: As when accessing another window, your Snapchat screens hideaway.
Moreover, just like your Phone version, the chats disappear after 24 hours on the Web too.
On a concluding note, you won’t be able to take screenshots on the Web by any means.
Yes, the phone version had a similar feature. However, most people had found a loop to take screenshots. Overall, rest assured; there is no loop in the Snapchat Web.

It’s difficult to give a verdict right away as it has many similar core features. However, the Web version has emphasized more on chat.
So it would be easier to locate unread snaps or missed calls, etc. Moreover, if you are someone who prefers chatting on a desktop, then Snapchat Web is much more suitable for you. In fact, the Web version also lets you make audio calls/ video calls.
And you can also send daily snaps.
Lastly, this new update comes with a reminder feature. So, instead of just a happy birthday cake beside your friend’s name, the Web version will send a notification regarding the approaching birthday.
