Snap Is Working On Stories Everywhere Feature - What Is It?

Snap Is Working On Stories Everywhere Feature - What Is It?

It probably pains Snapchat to hear how many people enjoy Snapchat features on apps created by one of its biggest rivals, but that's exactly what's happening these days.

Snap's goal here is to entice more users to use the app to create stories by allowing them to be shared on other platforms. The company is discussing giving users the ability to share Stories on other social platforms, according to Cheddar, as well as embed them on the web via a proprietary player.

But Snapchat's new feature, which the company is calling a "2017 Story", is interesting for a number of reasons. The feature would be called "Stories Everywhere". From there, you can work your own Snapchat magic - delete photos you don't want in the story, save the whole thing to your camera roll, and share with select friends, or your whole Snapchat friends list if you prefer. Currently, you can only view stories on the app. The success of this feature has been undeniable and it seems that other social media platforms have finally made a decision to emulate it.

Additionally, in 2018 Snap is reportedly planning to increase the overall output of content in the Discover feed, widen content distribution, and double-down on news. That's why Snapchat announced a redesign. This would surely open a way for Snapchat to make money through licensing.

Recently, Snap's CEO Evan Spiegel regretted that his social media site did not focus on Android-based smartphones.

According to Cheddar, Snap also restructured its content division around four executives: Mike Su, who will oversee content-related product development; Michael DiBenedetto, who will lead content strategy and operations; Sean Mills, who will oversee original content; and Josh Stone, who will lead media company relations. Unfortunately, it did not come close to Instagram Stories' active users of 300 million per month.
