The social networking giant is rolling out a new app called Snapchat for newsfeeds and newsrooms, according to a blog post from its CEO.
The company announced the news today.
The app lets newsrooms share video, audio, images and video clips with one another in a snapchat-like format, as well as embed video into other news content.
Snapchat is a Snapchat-like app for newsrooms and news consumers that lets users share video clips, audio clips, and photos in a format that allows them to be shared with their audience.
The Snapchat app is now available in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India, and Singapore.
The new app comes just months after Snapchat introduced a new feature that lets news users share videos with their community through the app’s video-sharing feature.
Snapchat also announced that it will soon begin rolling out an in-app subscription service that will let users buy access to news stories, curated by a team of news professionals who will vet the stories for accuracy and quality.
Snapchat is also launching an iOS and Android app this week, and will also roll out a web app for desktop and mobile in the coming months.
For now, the new app is only available in the U.S. and Canada.
Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel, pictured above, said that the new feature will let news publishers and consumers share video content in a similar way to the newsrooms that already share their content on Snapchat.
“With Snapchat, you get a real connection to your audience.
That’s why it’s the perfect app for media companies and consumers who want to engage and share content in real time,” Spiegel wrote.
“The Snap app also makes it easy for people to create and share their own news content.”
Spiegel also pointed out that people who use Snapchat regularly can create a Snapchat News Story, which allows them, along with their viewers, to vote on what other people in the audience might want to see.
The newsrooms’ videos can also be shared on Snapchat in real-time, Spiegel said.
Snapchat will also be launching a new photo-sharing service for news consumers in the near future.
Spiegel also told reporters that Snapchat has launched a Snapchat for Newsfeeds for news publishers, and hopes to bring the new service to more newsrooms soon.
“We want to bring a Snapchat app to more people,” he said.
“And we will.”
In the blog post, Spiegel also said that Snapchat is expanding its app to be able to display the social network for the people who sign up for the app.
“If you don’t want to have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can sign up on Snapchat and get a Snapchat,” he wrote.
Snapchat for People is expected to launch in the United States, Europe, Australia and New Zealand in the fall.
