Undeniably, Snapchat is widely-used by a great number of people around the world most especially the teen generation. However, it seems that it was quite hard for the multimedia messaging giant to fully spread its wings and make a name away from Facebook. Many developers believe that it can actually do more and hook more and more people with some development.

Recently, Snapchat introduced a new feature that brings a huge possibility that it will be one of those that will play a big part on the social media sites and the field of apps in the near future. It launched a platform tagged as the 'Snapkit', a full-fledged developer platform that brings Snap's camera and log-in to other applications. Previously, Techcrunch received multiple feeds that the Snap Inc., the company behind the said multimedia messaging giant, was having talks with other developers of apps for the integration of the platform of Snap.

The new feature of Snapchat raises the possibility that the log-in button and content of Snapkit will dominate the apps. Those who wish for a more private place in the online world can turn to the said platform that requires lesser information. It also allows users to sign up to other applications using their Snapkit account. Most likely, the presence of its log-in button everywhere can attract new people to make an account on the Snapchat platform.

Another great thing about the new feature of Snapchat is that users can bring with them their Bitmoji avatar after the company acquired Bitstrips. It was in 2016 when the company acquired the Toronto-based maker of Bitmojis at $64.2 million in 2016. It is one big thing that sets Snapchat apart from other messaging apps.

Have you tried the new feature of Snapchat? What can you say about it?
