Snapchat, an instant messaging app that lets you send pictures and videos, is now available on Windows. As a Progressive Web App, the social media app is now for sale in the Microsoft Store (PWA).
The advancement was identified as a result of a report released on Windows Central, a website that covers all of the most recent Windows innovations. According to the source, Snapchat’s PWA will be supported by the Microsoft Edge browser on Windows 10 and 11 PCs.
The app, according to sources, would be based on Snapchat’s web version. According to the source, the new function was introduced earlier this year and is compatible with Microsoft’s Edge web browser.
All of the features of the web version will be available in the 1.4MB app.
Users will see an app icon and notification support similar to native apps in the Start Menu. If you want to access your Snapchat messages or stories from a Windows laptop, download the PWA from the Microsoft Store. The App is presently available for free download.
In related news, Amazon and Snapchat have collaborated to provide their customers with an augmented reality experience. Thanks to the e-commerce juggernaut, Snapchat users will be able to try on eyewear styles from a variety of well-known brands. Because of the connection between Amazon Fashion and Snapchat, users will be able to upload products from brands such as Ray-Ban, Costa Del Mar, Persol, and others.
Evan Spiegel, Bobby Murphy, and Reggie Brown, three former Stanford University students, created the software, which is used by millions of people worldwide. On September 11, it became available.
As of 2021, the app had around 293 million daily active users. Each day, four billion Snaps are purportedly sent. Young individuals, particularly those under the age of 16, adore the software. Young people account for a sizable section of the user base, which has periodically prompted privacy issues.
