Snap Partner Summit | Introducing Snap Games

Eight years ago, we created Snapchat to make talking with your friends faster and more fun.

But friendship is more than just the things you talk about. Friendship is also about the experiences you have together — so we’ve been working hard to build an entirely new experience for friends to play together.

Introducing Snap Games: mobile games, made for friends!

You can launch Snap Games right from the Chat bar, allowing you and your friends to instantly play together — no install required. You can see which friends you’re playing with, send them a chat, or even talk live with voice chat. It feels like you’re sitting shoulder to shoulder, playing on the same screen.

Snap Games is launching with six titles:

  • In Bitmoji Party, you can play as yourself in a series of quick, wacky mini-games.
  • In Tiny Royale from Zynga, you and your friends shoot to the top in bite-sized Battle Royale action.
  • In Snake Squad from Game Closure, you and your squad work together to be the last ones standing!
  • In C.A.T.S. Drift Race from ZeptoLab, you’ll drift around the track and speed past friends for the win!
  • In Zombie Rescue Squad from PikPok, your squad will rescue survivors in a zombie-infested city.
  • In Alphabear Hustle from Spry Fox, you’ll collaborate to form words — fast! — to build your village.

Here’s a bit more about Bitmoji Party:

Snap Games begin rolling out to the world today!

Happy Snapping!

Snap Partner Summit | New Snap Originals

Today we’re excited to announce our new slate of Snap Originals programming!

These Shows span docuseries and scripted, comedies, and teen dramas — but they all have one thing in common. It’s not just the Shows that are original, it’s the way the stories are told.

They’re personal, intimate, and made for the way you use your phone today.

  • In Two Sides from New Form, a young couple navigates a breakup — told from both characters’ points of view at the same time.
  • Can’t Talk Now from New Form is a teen soap that takes place inside the phones of a few high school freshman BFFs.
  • In Sneakerheads from Indigo, we’ll follow the misadventures of three college freshmen as they navigate the crazy, shady, and mercurial world of Los Angeles sneaker culture.
  • In Commanders from Dakota Pictures, two high school outcasts discover a retro computer with a mysterious code that can alter real life.
  • Denton’s Death Date from Insurrection Media centers on Denton Little: a high school junior whose death date is only a week away.
  • While Black from Indigo is a docuseries that explores racially charged social issues through disarmingly candid conversations led by author, filmmaker, recording artist, and educator MK Asante.
  • BuzzFeed’s upcoming daily afternoon show will bring viewers the latest celebrity, entertainment, and sheer OMG moments blowing up the internet.
  • In Dead of Night from Bazelevs, a teenage girl must escape a quarantined city full of zombies armed with only her phone.
  • Compton Dreams from October Films is a docuseries following the highs and lows of three up-and-coming artists from Compton.
  • In Stranded with Sam and Colby from Bunim/Murray, two paranormal investigators go off the grid into a cursed Pennsylvania town.

We’re so grateful to our partners for joining us to shape the future of mobile storytelling. And we’re happy to report that the new format we’re building together is working!

Over the last year alone, the time Snapchatters spent watching Shows has nearly tripled1. Endless Summer was a hit, reaching over 28 Million unique viewers during its first season2. And with The Dead Girls Detective Agency, over 40% of the viewers that completed the first episode went on to watch the entire first season3. Both of these Snap Originals, and also Deep Creek, have been renewed and will be back this summer!

With Snap Originals, we’re creating amazing Shows that can be experienced almost anywhere. We can’t wait to launch these new series and more in the coming months! Learn more about the upcoming Snap Originals here.

Enjoy the Shows!

Snap Partner Summit | The Future of Lenses

Almost four years ago, we introduced Lenses: a whole new way to see your selfie!

The first Lenses we made were for self expression. Next came World Lenses: 3D stickers, Bitmoji, and dancing hot dogs overlaid on the world around you. Most recently, we launched Snappables — games you can play with your face!

In just over a year, more than 400,000 Lenses have been created by our community, and people have played with those Lenses over 15 billion times!1 We’re introducing Creator Profiles to help Lens Creators showcase their work and learn more about their audience.

We call them Lenses because they don’t just filter your world. They allow you to immerse yourself in something new. We believe that someday in the future, these kinds of experiences will be layered on the world around you with new ways to talk, create, learn, and play.

Today, we’re making it easier to find the right Lenses at the right time.

Just press and hold on your camera screen to Scan the world around you.

Scan a math problem to get the answer, or a product to see results on Amazon. Scan your dog to give her goofy glasses, or a song to see who sings it. Scan the sky to see whales swim over the horizon, or scan your hand to watch butterflies emerge as you open your palm.

Today’s Lens Studio update now includes even more templates for augmented reality creators — including Landmarkers, which empower creators to build Lenses that can transform the world's most iconic landmarks in real-time. There are also new templates for hand-tracking, body-tracking, and more, which you can use to create Lenses that could appear when Snapchatters use Scan!

Happy Snapping!

Snap Partner Summit | Plug in to Snap Kit

To date, more than 200 apps have integrated with Snap Kit, powering all sorts of unique experiences that bring some of Snapchat’s most popular features to partner applications, and allow Snapchatters to create Snaps using creative tools built by our partners.

Today we’re excited to announce new Snap Kit experiences:

Introducing App Stories

App Stories allow Snapchatters to share content right from the Snapchat camera to a Story inside another app.

  • Share a Snap of your hidden talent to a Story on your Tinder profile.
  • Share a Snap of your day to a Story on Houseparty.
  • Share a Snap of your latest trip on AdventureAide to inspire customers to join you next time.

Creative Kit

Conversation is so often about the content and causes you care about. We’re excited to announce that soon, you’ll be able to share custom stickers from your favorite services right on a Snap.

  • Use Netflix to share the show you’re watching.
  • Use Breaker or Anchor to share the podcast you’re listening to.
  • Use Anghami (in the Middle East) or JioSavvn (in India) to share a song you love.
  • Use GoFundMe to share a meaningful cause.
  • Use VSCO to share a beautiful photo with your friends on Snapchat.

With many of these integrations, friends can simply swipe up to watch, listen, or donate on their own!

Bitmoji Kit

Bitmoji Kit helps our community bring their Bitmoji with them to even more places.

  • Use Bitmoji to add context to your payments on Venmo.
  • Watch your Bitmoji react, right on your wrist, as you move with Fitbit. Now that’s self-motivation!

Introducing Ad Kit

Ad Kit allows developers to access our new Snap Audience Network and bring our popular mobile ad format, Snap Ads, to their apps. This will help our partners grow, and offer advertisers new ways to reach the Snapchat community.

We’re accepting applications for Ad Kit and App Stories (part of Story Kit) at beginning today.

Happy Snapping!

Snapchat いじめ防止月間


しかし、それでもいじめが発生してしまうことがあります。Snapchatはこの機に、いじめ行為を断じて許さないということを、はっきりとメッセージにして伝えようと考えました。そこで、広告協議会(Ad Council)と提携し、いじめ防止月間を実施することにしました。オンラインや実生活でのいじめ問題に対する認識を高めるため、フィルターやスタンプ、スナップ広告を作成しました。

いじめ行為や不快なスナップを見かけたら、スナップを長押しして 🏳️ ボタンをタップするだけで、アプリから直接報告できます。問題の状況を詳しく報告してください。できる限りのサポートをいたします!詳しくはセーフティセンターを参照してください。
