Snapchat is a Photo-sharing app for smartphones. It allows users to capture photos and record videos and share those photos or videos with a selected list of recipients and can get instant reply from them. This Photo-sharing app was released in November 2012 for Android and then its iOS version was released in June 2013.
Before sending your snaps to your contact list, you can add a caption or drawings to photos or videos. There is a My Story tab where you can add your snaps which will be shared with all your friends. You can also set a limit from 1 to 10 seconds for a photo to be displayed at receiver’s screen and then it will disappear. You can record a video of at most length of 10 seconds. Snapchat’s main feature which made this app so popular is that it notifies you if someone takes a screenshot of your story. The best thing about this app is that there are absolutely no ads.
Due to these amazing features, Snapchat managed to attract more than 500 million users. Still, this app is not available for PCs. This guide will help you to download Snapchat for PC.
