Snapchat Reportedly Bringing Stories to Web with new 'Stories Everywhere' Feature

Illustration by Alex Castro  The Verge

Once you find it, the new feature will give you the options to edit, save, or send the story. So far, the only destination to view Snap stories is the Snapchat app.

Snapchat is reportedly working on expanding its Stories feature outside of its own app with a new initiative called "Stories Everywhere".

The success of Snapchat's 24-hour ephemeral posts brought the feature on to various social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp. If you are looking under "Stories" or "Camera Roll", you won't be able to find it. The success of this feature has been undeniable and it seems that other social media platforms have finally chose to emulate it. All of the snaps are assembled automatically to create the Story. To make up for it, Snap Inc is expected to redesign the Snapchat app.

British Woman Sentenced To Three Years In Egyptian Prison
Plummer was arrested on arrival from Britain in October, and her detention was extended twice prior to her court appearance. Since October, her family says she has been held in a communal cell with no beds and up to 25 other women.

According to a report by Cheddar, the project is being led by Rahul Chopra, the former Senior Vice President and Global Head of Video at News Corp, who recently was CEO of the media conglomerate's social data agency Storyful. It could be as easy as sharing a Snapchat story via a web player, after which the user is prompted to sign up and download the app. In terms of its content goals for 2018, Snap wants to double down on news, according to an internal memo obtained by Cheddar.

Spiegel noted that in the Q3 of 2017, Snapchat was used on over 60,000 Android smartphone variants.

Since Snap went public in February, the company has been facing stagnant user growth and declining revenues especially in the third quarter of the year when it reported disappointing figures in key departments. This new design that includes a more focused Discover feed provides news and entertainment from professional print, TV, and online outlets will be made available to a small percentage of users, for the time being.
