Introducing Snapchat for Pc !!!

Whether you're a small business enterprise or you have a personal brand, or a large following, Snapchat is a great social media tool if you're looking to make many more people aware of your business and brand. Snapchat is a social media network in which you can message/chat, take pictures and exchange videos, connect with bigger accounts and promote your business.

Snapchat is a closed end platform. Despite the fact that it is so big at helping grow brands and businesses,  most times the people you can easily connect with are those who have your local number. You can come up as a suggestion to them and they add you up or vice versa, through your username.

Other time, you'll come across big accounts that have become big as a result of their prolonged stay and brand building over the years. These may pop up after you have viewed the Snaps of your contacts. These are like mini influences and if their content makes you laugh or is educative enough,  you have the option  to subscribe to them.

Snapchat is very popular for its filters. These filters are especially created and used based on a user's location, asides the ones that are generally used. What this means is if you want to get the most out of Snapchat, you better switch on your location. You will enjoy beautiful filters and the app generally better this way. Snapchat also has ads that are so catchy and beautiful that sometimes, you'd be surprised that the video you just viewed is actually an ad. With Snapchat for business, you can run these ads easily following the steps listed out. 


   


Features

  • Video chatting 
  • Private chats.
  • Location based filters 
  • Picture Importation from local gallery
  • Timer feature
  • Text overlays/Draw on picture feature 
  • Constant notifications 
  • User awareness when their snap is replayed or screenshotted. 
  • Message disappearing feature.

 

Why we love Snapchat!

It's current. This is a very important feature. There are loads of tutorials and news littered all through Snapchat. You are able to not only connect with your friends and new strangers if you want in real time, but also read the most current news in the world, as they happen. Also if you're bored, there are tiny popup games you can play to kill boredom. 


Advantages of using the app on PC

  1. It is delightful to use.
  2. The message disappear feature works well for those who don't like to keep chats. 
  3. It is still private as not everyone has easy access to you unless they have your phone contact.
  4. It's a great tool for influencing businesses  
  5. You can chat both individually and in groups.
  6. Location can be a great way to meet New People and make new friends.
  7. You can protect what you post within the app as there's an option for passworded media in there.

 

Snapchat Cons

  • The disappearing feature might take away chats before they're saved for important reference.
  • Might not be best for children as the ads and discovery tab might have inappropriate content for their age.
  • Having the location on can take away the privacy needed by a user.

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Snapchat in the search bar and press Search. Click on Snapchatapplication icon. A window of Snapchat on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.

  • A New Update that Caused a Virus on my Phone

    By The Exclusive 1 (Pcmac user)

    As of August 20,2019 Snapchat had a another update and I thought maybe it would make a few improvements. Turns out I was wrong because that day on Wednesday morning I woke up and opened up my Snapchat to church my 66 total streaks that I had. When I got on Snap I had saw 2 of my streaks were dead than snap crashed. I opened snap up repeatedly but it kept crashing. So than I restarted the app, my phone, and deleted unnecessary apps from my phone but nothing had changed anytime I opened my phone. I even took the liberty to delete the app and re-download it but the result was the same when I logged in to the app it kept crashing. I went to my phone provider Network store to see if I was doing something wrong preventing me to get on snap but the store associate told me the app may have put a virus or a bug on my phone 😡. I have used SC for 3 years and this situation has never occurred on my phone but now it has came to a point that Snapchat gives horrible updates. All of the old features was decent and it was fun but it will be great if they keep some of the new features that they added a while back and bring back the old features which would make Snapchat way better but I guess. The only thing that I know is I can not open Snapchat without it crashing over and over ever since the last update. No other apps on my phone acts like this besides Snapchat 🤷🏽‍♂️
  • Needs a Bug Fix!

    By Hello from da uther siiidee (Pcmac user)

    So, I love Snapchat. It’s my most used app and it’s my first way of trying to get ahold of someone. There have been some issues though. Most of the time, it will show me snaps and chats and videos that I’ve already opened multiple times. It’ll say “Tap to Load” the second or third time around, and once I tap it the snap, video, or chat goes away. It’s super annoying. Also, I have to wait on everything to load. I don’t know if this is an issue with my phone or what, but I don’t know how to fix it. It’s not that my wifi connection isn’t strong, because my friend can just swipe right over to her messages, but I can’t. I have to wait for my Bitmoji or my Story loads and pops up in its spot. If I don’t wait, then all of my old messages and stuff come back. They still do it even if I’ve already replied to them once. Another issue I just encountered was it not showing up. I received a text last night, but I didn’t open it. When I woke up this morning, I go to check it, and there’s no message there. There isn’t even the saved chats. It does that sometimes too, it deletes our saved chats. Anyway, when I go to the person who texted me, it just says “Received 7 hours ago” even though I never opened the message. I tried to contact Snapchat Help on the app, but the profile was nowhere to be found. So, I deleted the app and I’m re-installing it now. Thank you for reading!
  • Keeps logging me out

    By Toriii03 (Pcmac user)

    I have had snapchat since 2015 and it was working fine. However, October 6, 2019 I’ve been having some problems. When I opened the app on this day, I was logged out. At first I thought some one was trying to get into my account, so I logged in again and it immediately logged me back out. When I tried to log in for the third time, it said my account was temporarily locked. I reached out to snap support for help and I followed the steps to get my account unlocked. I followed the steps and when I logged in again, the same thing happened. It logs me out everytime I log in. However, I logged into my Snapchat on another device and it worked perfectly fine. I thought it was my device and I reached out to apple. They said that since my phone is up to date and we followed all the restarting steps, it may be a problem with the app. Everytime I reach out to snapchat they say the same thing. That my account is locked, but it ISNT. It just doesn’t work on my device for some reason. I have an IPhone X, mind you it used to work perfectly fine. I think there’s a bug or virus in the app and it needs to be fixed immediately. I haven’t been able to use Snapchat on my own device in almost a month. Snap support is no help at all, they need real people to talk to instead of automatic replies for other problems that cannot be found on the website
  • Small suggestion

    By UnbuiltFungus10 (Pcmac user)

    I can say confidently that me and all of my friends spend just about all of our time on Snapchat. It has brought many people I know together in ways I’ve never seen capable by another app. By far snapchat is my favorite and most used app. It is easy to use and has a smooth and appealing layout. I am not here to criticize, but simply to make a suggestion. I enjoy watching some of the shows on the “For you” tab. But I often find myself losing the show that I was just watching. I’ve noticed that thumbnails change after you go through the story, so that makes it hard to find what you clicked on in the first place. In particular I keep finding myself thinking “wow, I enjoyed that show, but I don’t remember what channel it was under. Though I only watched it 5 minutes ago.” Thus I would propose a sort of “history” feature for the “for you” page. (I would not like this for personal stories, only shows on the for you tab.) Possibly even just keep it in a more hidden spot because I do not need it as often as other things on Snapchat. But a feature like this would help me find and subscribe to the shows I enjoy. Thank you for reading.
