Snapchat now lets 16 people do group video chat

However, it comes with an option of joining and not joining in that video call.

In spring 2016, we introduced Video and Voice Chat as part of a large Chat update with the goal of making catching up on Snapchat feel less like texting and more like really hanging out. "That's why when a friend opens Chat, their Bitmoji pops up to say "I'm here!" - and why your Chat conversations aren't saved forever, by default".

"To tag a friend, just start typing in "@", spell out the username of the person, then tap on the name you want tagged.

The new chat feature will let up to 16 users connect via video.

The group video chat feature is rolling out to the Snapchat Android app within this week. When you start a group video chat, they'll get a notification that you are inviting them to join and they need to accept to join the chat.

Snapchat launched a redesign of its application earlier this year that received massive negative feedback, including a huge petition for it to roll back the changes. Meanwhile, group audio chatting can support 32 friends at once. It is quite an impressive number in comparison with Google Hangout 10 and Messenger 6. Now, you can tag friends in the Snaps you add to your Story! The second new feature - Story mentions - is also something that has existed on rival Instagram for a long time. Also, these mentioned accounts, you can easily browse and add to friends. Instagram introduced a section similar to Snapchat where users can post temporary stories to display to followers.
