Snapchat brings its Snap Map to the web
While Snapchat users are still reeling from the recent update, the company has continued to expand beyond the reaches of the app. After giving users the ability to share and watch Stories outside of the app last month, Snap this week is bringing the Snap Map feature to the web for anyone to browse, regardless of whether or not they have the app. You can check out the web-based Snap Map for yourself at map.snapchat.com right now.
As the web-based Snap Map is disconnected from the Snapchat app, you won’t see your friends while browsing the map. Rather, the Snap Map is populated exclusively by public stories of popular events, places or brands. You can still tap anywhere to see Snaps from random users though, so it has most of the same functionality.
