Photo-messaging app Snapchat has reportedly joined hands with third-party service TuneMoji to allow users to post musical Graphics Interchange Format (GIFs) to a personal chat or their Story.

TuneMoji shows a searchable gallery of GIFs which users would be able to set to different licensed songs and sounds from which users could select a messaging app they wish to share the musical GIF on, including Snapchat, Business Insider reported on Sunday.

The integration comes after Snapchat opened up to third-party developers with its full-fledged developer platform “Snap Kit” platform earlier in June.

However, users would not be able to open Snapchat and send musical GIFs from inside the app. So order to send musical GIFs, users must have both TuneMoji and Snapchat downloaded on their devices.

Ahead of the release of a Warner Bros. feature film “Shazam”, photo-messaging app Snapchat has created a voice-activated Augmented Reality (AR) Lens to back the movie.

Users are allowed to access the new Lens either by scanning the Snapcode on “Shazam” movie posters or by saying “OK, Shazam”, Social Media Today reported on Friday.

“Adding new elements to Lenses makes sense — Snapchat has previously reported that a third of its 186 million daily active users ‘play with Lenses every day’, which would currently equate to some 62 million users,” the report said.

Snapchat is reportedly planning to launch more "Lenses" that will react to sounds over the coming weeks.

In May 2018, the app launched a new set of Lens that could respond to video as well as audio cues.

In August, Snapchat released a new range of Lenses triggered by different spoken terms like “hi”, “love”, “yes”, “no” and “wow”.

Enabling brands to tap into this, and maximise exposure through as many creative options as possible, is another way that Snapchat can grow its business appeal and capitalise on the popularity of the app, especially with younger users, the report added. (IANS)
