Snapchat adds group video calls for up to 16 users

Wednesday 4 April 2018 | 10:11 CET | News
Snapchat has announced the launch of a number of new features, including group video calls for up to 16 people simultaneously via the app and up to 32 via voice chat alone. Users simply have to tap the video icon to begin a live group video chat or tap on the phone icon for a voice call. The company said it's designed Chat to feel less like texting and more like hanging out so that when a friend opens Chat, their Bitmoji pops up to say "I'm here!".
