Snapchat Enables Users To Share & Watch Videos On Other Platforms

Snapchat app

Following the return of co-founder Jack Dorsey in 2015, Twitter has been recovering from a decline.

Snapchat is one of the few apps that automatically activates a camera feature when the app is opened.

A working prototype of the tool has been built, but the design could change and no release date has been planned for the feature just yet. Bloomberg's report stated that Twitter's goal with the new product is to cut down the number of steps to start sharing videos. As it stands, users first have to tap on the icon to compose a tweet before they can tap the relevant option to upload a video to a tweet or broadcast live from the app.

After recently unveiling a fresh look, video messaging app Snapchat has announced it will allow users to share its public content beyond the mobile app.

As social media giants fight to keep their dominant market positions, Twitter is trying to keep up with the times by creating a new video sharing tool that shares similarities with Snapchat.

But the company has promised, more generally, to do what it can to attract and keep users.

Elton just sat down with Anderson Cooper to announce a world tour, saying it'll span over the course of the next 3 years. One of his biggest scares came previous year with hospitalization from a bacterial infection contracted in South America.

Snapchat is the coolest social network right now due to the fact that major social networking sites copied its Stories format, which has proven to be very popular with millenials.

Twitter, shares of which were largely unchanged in trading Thursday, is desperate to increase its user engagement, as well as its stagnant stock price.

Twitter in recent months has introduced changes to the platform to improve user experience.

Twitter has been facing increasing pressure from investors and industry watchers who say the app has been losing users to other popular apps like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat.

Twitter planning to update its app for iOS and Android devices to make the camera more accessible.
