Use Snapchat In A Web Browser
There are a lot of limitations while using the Snapchat messaging app on your web browser.
Snapchat on the Web will allow you to carry on with your online conversations through web browsers.
You can use it to voice or video call and send text-based messages.
But this service is currently limited to Snapchat Plus subscribers that costs $3.99 per month for users in the United States, UK & Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
As per the latest announcements, the developers have decided to make this feature available for all Snapchat users.
To use Snapchat online from your PC, first you need to log in to your Snapchat account. Here is how to do it:
- Visit the Snapchat Accounts page from Edge or Google Chrome and enter your sign-in credentials. Snapchat is not available for Firefox or Safari.
- After signing in you can easily change the accounts settings as needed.
- You can send messages and initiate or receive video & voice calls from your PC.
- You can also access Chat Reply or Chat Reactions. You can easily pick up where you left off on your smartphone.
Snapchat Privacy Screen
While using Snapchat on a web browser the users can host the privacy screen to hide their online chats from others.
When you tab away to do some other jobs, Snapchat’s Privacy Screen will get activated on your browser.
If you don’t want your colleagues or boss to peep around and see your Snaps, then this Privacy screen is a good option for you!
It makes the Snaps invisible the moment you click on another window on the web browser.
Besides, this does not allow taking screenshots of the chats from your PC to provide extra protection.
