Snapchat for PC
BrowserCam introduces Snapchat for PC (MAC) download for free. Snapchat Inc. developed Snapchat app to work with Google Android along with iOS however, you would also be able to install Snapchat on your PC or laptop. We’re going to check out the prerequisites to download Snapchat PC on Windows or MAC computer at the end of this post.
Snapchat is an app for photo and video sharing with your friends and family or with complete strangers instantly. Your messages self-destroy after they are viewed by someone. The idea behind this is to prevent other users from sharing and forwarding your creations. Snapchat is very popular with teenagers and young adults. The photos and videos that you share disappear within seconds after a person views it. Snapchat also allows you to chat with your friends. You can send photos and videos to your contacts directly after applying some fun filters, captions and other enhancements. For serious users, Snapchat doesn't make much sense, since it has no real life value, except for a few seconds of entertainment, but it's not just a photo and video sharing app. Let's look at some more features that Snapchat has to offer.
Snapchat Stories and Memories
You can post multiple snaps to your followers, to create a story. Viewers can view your story as many times as they want in a day, a deviation from the core idea. This feature again is purely targetted at teenagers. Memories contain your past Snaps which you can view and re-share with your followers.
Chat and Video Chat
Using Snapchat, you can connect with your friends and contacts through text messages and video chat. Although this is not the main feature, you can use this to strike up a short conversation with a friend or contact who has just shared an interesting story, without leaving the app. Emojis and Stickers are also available, which is very common in any app having messaging features. There's no group messaging as such, but you can create broadcasts.
Filters and Effects
Snapchat has limited filters and special effects that you can apply to your photos and videos. In the age of Instagram and other photo editing apps, Snapchat lacks in this department. There's not much that you can do except for a few fun manipulations to your snaps.
Snapchat does what it is intended to. Although you probably won't use it regularly, the idea of sharing secret photos and videos which last for a few seconds has takers. It is immensely popular with teenagers. Even without a convincing feature set, it has managed to keep its users happy and snapping. The app is not straight forward to use for a first time user. The UI is a bit confusing. Overall, we rate Snapchat 3.5 out of 5. It probably needs a little more organizing on the UI and UX. Having said that, Snapchat deserves a lot of appreciation for keeping its users engaged who show no sign of slowing down. Snapchatters are on a roll.
