Snapchat Wants You To Share Your Stories Everywhere

If Snapchat's Stories Everywhere feature pans out, it could give it the edge over rivals Facebook and Instagram, which don't offer support for sharing its content on other platforms - yet. The social media app announced December 28 they would be launching A Look Back at 2017, a new feature that allows over 158 million Snapchat users to share their favorite photos and memories of 2017 with their friends.

Development is still in the "early stages", but Stories Everywhere would allow users to share videos on various platforms through a web player, according to the source, giving Snapchat more exposure. Of course, you can still export your stories later and upload them separately as a video file. The idea is to boost the presence of Snapchat beyond just its mobile app.

TNW says that the automatically-created story can be shared if you wish.

CEO Evan Spiegel had announced that the redesign would to make the app "easier to use" but didn't specify when the redesign would be released. The decision to make Stories available outside of Snapchat arrives as the app's user growth has stalled in the wake of its massive IPO.

Snap, the parent company of Snapchat, has been fighting stalling growth as Facebook-backed competitors Instagram and Messenger steal its best features. In addition to offering numerous social games and methods of keeping in touch with your friends, family and acquaintances, Facebook offers one key feature many users love: memories, or the "On This Day" feature. To get feedback on the app's performance and design, it has distributed a variety of Android devices to the engineering teams. Instagram Stories which is just a year old has lapped up close to 300 million active users.
