Once an exclusive mobile app, Snapchat announced the launch of the browser-based software version of its messaging service. After 11 years, Snapchat can now be used on the desktop instead of just on your iPhone. Snapchat for the web is for subscribers only Snapchat + right now, but it will be gradually available to all users.
However, the web version currently only supports messaging and video calling, according to Engadget, Snap has expressed plans to eventually add support for augmented reality lenses. The company is also introducing privacy features in Snapchat for the web, for example, blocking all screenshot attempts it detects, including those with shortcuts.

In addition, Snapchat for the web won’t feature ads or other revenue-generating features, but still, according to a Snap spokesperson, more mobile-exclusive features will be coming to the web version as demand allows.
