Enjoy Group Video Chat on Snapchat in Android
Well, there is no secret that Snapchat is rolling out group video chat across the globe, and provided your app is up to date you should see the feature added in the near future. Well, you know that Snapchat groups have been a thing for a while, but they were mostly for sharing snaps and nothing else. This new feature allows up to sixteen people in one group video chat.
Yes, you’ll then be able to video call up to sixteen of your friends or family members at once, using Lenses or only your voice. This is perfect if you like the idea of video chatting with so many people all at once and I bet that you are excited.
What I want to add is that Snapchat’s new Group Video Chat feature will be steadily rolled out over the next few weeks to Android users, so make sure to keep checking back for updates to your app! If you already have it, let’s get started:
How to enjoy Group Video Chat on Snapchat in Android:
- At first, you need to open the Snapchat app;
- Then, you need to tap the chat icon at the bottom left of your screen. This will take you to your chat threads;
- Tap the New Chat icon at the top right;
- Select multiple friends from the list, then press Chat;
- You must tap the Name Group field at the top of the window to rename the group;
- Then, press Done;
- Send a message or snap to the group to save it;
- Once the feature has been added to your app you’ll be able to make video calls to everyone in the group by tapping the video camera icon;
- They will get a notification asking them to join the video chat, and when they join you’ll see their name bubble light up.
Do you actually have more than 16 friends you want to talk to at the same time? Then, I am sure that you will love to hear that Snapchat has something for you too. Besides the Group Video Chat feature, the social media app rolled out a few other new features that include Group Voice Chat. While you can’t video chat with more than 16 friends at the moment, things are different with voice chats as they can support up to 32 members.
