Snapchat Adds Multiplayer Gaming
Snap has added Snap Games to the Snapchat app, a curated set of multiplayer games that Snapchat friends can play together, right within the app. The games are free to play, but include six-second ads. They're all designed for a vertical screen orientation. Players can chat via text or voice while playing. The first six titles include Tiny Royale by Zynga, Alphabear Hustle by Spry Fox, C.A.T.S. Drift Race by ZeptoLab, and Snapchat's own Bitmoji Party, where you play using your own avatar.
