Although an official Snapchat app is still missing on Windows Phone, Rudy Huyn and his app 6snap have done a nice job of filling in the gap. It was only 3 weeks ago that Snapchat announced their new text chat and video calling service, and Windows Phone users wanted some of that action too.
It was no secret that Huyn was working on porting (and re-coding) his app for the new feature, and today it is now live for everyone. Heading into the Windows Phone Store we can see version 3.0 is ready and willing for your secret-ish chats to friends and strangers.
Let’s see what’s new.
- Chat conversation with your contacts
- Display more snaps, you can scroll to see old snaps
- Search snaps
That sounds like a win-win for Windows Phone users, who can at least have conversations now with those on iOS and Android.
If you’re a big fan of Snapchat, you have no reason not to grab 6snap, so pick it up here in the Store. Let us know in comments how you like the new features!
Thanks, Neal R., for the tip!
