Photo-messaging app Snapchat is planning to announce its in-app gaming platform codenamed “Project Cognac” during its first-ever summit for content and developer partners on April 4 in Los Angeles.

The in-app gaming space would feature games from third-party developers designed specifically to work on Snapchat.
