Snap Map for Web

Snap Map, now on the web 🌎

#2 Product of the DayFebruary 12, 2018

The Snap Map is a feature that lets you see where all your friends on the platform were at any given time – provided they were okay with sharing that info. Now there’s a version of Snap Map available for anyone to view on the web -- Snap Map for Web.

    Easier to embed stories based on location


    None so far

    If this goes well, more and more media outlets will start embedding Stories from Snap Map for breaking news (such as Hurricane Harvey, Las Vegas Shooting etc.)

    Eventually, it will reach Twitter/Facebook/News to the older audiences- people Snapchat is trying to lure in 2018.

    beautiful design + starting to show care about web users.


    i don't care about the content in snap map.

    maybe a web client/page to watch snaps from friends that would be nice, just like the one that instagram has.

Reminds me of the Facebook Live Map. Snap's quietly moving into Yelp/Foursquare territory. I wouldn't doubt if Snap's already circling Foursquare for an acquisition.

@rrhoover They definitely entered the location business : Stories + Map + Context Card = money :)

The most interesting part of this is that I think this is the beginning of having Snaps and Stories live outside of the 👻 garden. If you click into a story you can now copy a link or get embed code!

About time Snapchat makes a move! The ability to communicate, create, and build community through Snapchat is far superior than any other platform. I only wish more practitioners were out there preaching about its capabilities so people could really see the power of Snapchat. Especially from the business perspective, Snapchat has had to be where your people already are up until this point but I see this as a huge milestone in stepping forward!

Great to see Snap Maps available on the web now @evanspiegel -- what was the motivation behind making them more accessible even to non-app users? 👻
