Snapchat goes on the web

By

Snapchat for Web is now available, meaning users aren't limited to using their own devices.

Snapchat for Web allows Snapchat users to log in with their usual credentials and continue their conversations from where they left off on.

Features such as Chat Reactions and Chat Reply are included, and Lenses for video calls will soon be added, along with the ability to send Snaps from the computer.

An interesting feature is the privacy screen that hides the Snapchat window when it's not the frontmost task.

"With so many in our community spending more time online – whether it is for remote learning or working, streaming or just plain browsing – we saw a huge opportunity to make it easier for our community to stay connected throughout their day," the company said.

A team of Australian-based Snap engineers played a key role in developing Snapchat for Web.

Ryan Thomas, who leads the Sydney based engineering group, said: "We've got a very talented team of local engineers who build Calling for Snapchat, and have extended this onto Snapchat for Web.

"With over 100 million Snapchatters making calls to their friends on Snapchat every month, we knew this was a critical element to get right. We're pleased that an important part of the Snapchat for Web experience has been created here in Australia and will be utilised by people all over the world."

ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.


Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
