  • Snapchat introduces group video chat feature: Here's how you can use it

Today's candidate for June's cool new Instagram feature is group video chatting. Now you can video chat with up to 16 of your friends at one time.

Just tap the video icon in a Group Chat to get started; each friend will receive a notification inviting them to join the call.

The Group Chat feature will also support the ability for different users to take part in different ways - using just their voice or sending traditional text-based messages if they prefer.

To start a group video call, users have to press the video call button in the group of people of they can simply lift the call when someone initiates the group call. Group video chat will start rolling out to all Snapchat users worldwide starting this week. As usual, all of the same face lenses will be available to users while they're in a group video chat. Then, tap on the video or phone icon to initiate the video or audio chat respectively. Find your friends in the search bar and select "Chat" to start the group conversation.

The company first introduced one-on-one calling two years ago, allowing users of the platform to communicate via voice or video.

When a user sees a tagged Snap, they can swipe up and add the person as a friend or view any public Stories.

Mentioning other users is a rather trivial feature for regular consumers but is extremely valuable to celebrities and high-profile users that have large audiences.

Late last month, the firm introduced a new feature to Snap Maps, called Map Explore, that lets you easily discover what your friends are up to. Facebook Messenger has filters too, but only supports six callers; Houseparty can handle eight callers, but doesn't have filters. This update will effectively make the feature more conversational in nature. The other user will be notified that they were included in a story. This should make it a (ahem) snap to tag the right person.
