snapchat is now available for everyone via web browser

Snapchat launched a browser version of their service back in July, featuring messaging and video chat functionality — but only in select regions and for subscribers to Snapchat+. The popular messaging app will now be available in a browser-based format for all users globally.

The interface isn’t exactly cutting edge in terms of design or features. However, it still looks like a useful option for people who like to type long messages, or those looking for a more efficient way to upload content using a desktop or laptop.

The web-based version of Snapchat will also allow users to make longer-length audio and video calls after the company revealed that this had been a popular feature of late. As demand for the browser version of the app grows, Snapchat engineers will add more core features to the desktop app, bringing most of the functionality that users already enjoy on Android and iOS.

Speaking of the popular Apple operating system, Snapchat has also announced a set of new lock screen widgets for its service now that iOS 16 has arrived on the scene. The widgets allow iPhone fans to create shortcuts to conversions, helping users quickly jump back into frequent chats in a single tap.

The Snapchat app itself will also feature new shortcuts at the top of its chat page. The new additions will make it easy for people to jump to their unread Snaps, frequent chats, and replies to stories. The shortcuts will also show reminders for friends’ birthdays and conversations that users haven’t replied to yet. Last, but not least, Snapchat has also added Question Stickers that can be posted to stories and Snaps. There’s no definite release date on any features yet, but some users have already started to benefit from a gradual roll-out of the upgrades.

world's largest metaverse developer opens dubai office

LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.

So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.

The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.

“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE. The MENA region is a key market for us, and we believe that our presence in Dubai will allow us to assist the region and explore new opportunities. We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.

Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
